Take the elbow level and fingers on top of the ball advice from Kip Gross and you cannot go wrong. Great advice.
I read and hear so many comments on every thing except the most important aspect of pitching which is how the body should work in a sequenced/chain reactive movement straight down the line, closed body position, no body rotation to front foot touch down with a stride of at least matching one's body height then hips rotate, shoulders momentarily remain closed creating hip, shoulder separation then shoulders rotate immediately thereafter creating a sequenced body chain reaction executed at the proper time in the proper sequence while bringing the shoulders, arm and ball in hand [In a mouse trap forward movement] on through from their external lay back position to the arms internal forward position to ball release and nice flat back follow through position which allows the body to take on the brunt of the physical work instead of just the arm which in the majority of cases during a pitchers throwing movement does not happen. I just viewed a young pitcher/ thrower from Webb City, Mo. during little league play,who reached out front and twisted off and jerked his elbow area during a once too many curve ball, he immediately went to his knees in excruciating elbow pain. The little league rules on number of pitches may be ok but they also need to monitor and regulate the breaking pitch number also mostly due to the fact that these youngsters certainly are not learning how to properly execute their throws through the sequenced/chain reaction I mentioned above therefore their arms do the brunt of the physical work instead of their body's.
I certainly would like to converse with that youngster and his parents.
