  • How to Pitch Faster

  • One of the most common questions I get asked is, how can you get my son to throw faster?

  • There are a number of things we can do to improve arm strength, although people are

  • born with a certain amount of God-given ability when it comes to arm strength. For one, we

  • can long toss, and when we long toss we start out at 50 feet and then we move back progressively

  • to 200 to 300 feet so that we can strengthen our arms. When we're long tossing, we should

  • throw the four-seam, the two-seam, and change up grip to get comfortable with these various

  • grips when holding a baseball.

  • Another thing we can do to improve our velocity is work on what's called a scapular load.

  • The scap-load, as we call it, means that we're pinching our shoulders back or thrusting our

  • chest out when we get into the high cocking position of the pitching delivery.

  • Rotation is another component that may increase velocity by creating torque. We can rotate

  • our shoulders 15 to 20 degrees, or in the case of Aroldis Chapman of the Cincinnati

  • Reds or Madison Bumgarner of the San Francisco Giants, there may be a rotation of 50 to 60

  • degrees. While these rotations do increase torque, they may also put extra strain on

  • the arm, so it's important to keep this in mind.

  • Another thing that can be done to improve velocity and arm strength would be spot drills.

  • By developing clean mechanics and a repetitive delivery, pitchers can become more efficient

  • and ultimately hit their higher levels of velocity throughout the game.

  • When considering how to throw faster, there are various things that players can do off

  • the field to generate more velocity. They can run sprints. They can go to the weight

  • room and do squats and other strength building activities that might build their core and

  • torso. Medicine ball drills can also be done which incorporates the hips into the throwing

  • mechanics. And, there are therapeutic bands which are long plastic bands that enable pitchers

  • to go through a variety of core exercise with their pitching including internal, external,

  • and a variety of other rotations that will enable them to be more flexible and develop

  • more arm whip and speed.

  • These are different ways that you can learn to throw faster.
