Baseball Pitching: Pivot Foot Drill
· The pivot foot drill Pivot foot Drill begins with the pitcher's pivot foot placed with the instep facing the target or the plate.
· The weight is on the stride foot. At this point the body should be in control and above the pivot foot.
· The pitcher transfers the weight to the pivot foot which then creates the directional side (meaning glove side pointing to the plate) and goes right through to the knee lift and finishes the progression.
· This drill reinforces the control over the rubber as well as the creation of the directional side.
