|PITCHING: JOE'S LONG TOSS DRILL |
|The following speed drill also works for accuracy, while building arm strength. I have my pitchers pitch from approximately 20 feet, 10 balls. Then I have them move in ten foot increments back until they are throwing from as far back as 60 feet. |
Once we have maxed out the "comfortable accurate distance" for the drill, I have them move to the rubber, and throw 20-50 hard pitches. I find that combining the short and long distances works on two things at the same time...arm stength (speed) and accuracy.
