Your lower body whips your throwing arm into release.
Your stride interrupts your lower body rotation which forces your body to do one thing and one thing only. To get itself back in balance, your body demands your throwing arm makes a spontaneous reaction.
When you put your body in this position, you show your opponent a fastball arm speed where, as a reaction to your lower body interruption, your throwing hand comes through a consistently tiny release window.
Change your grip, change your release, let your body’s reaction show your opponent a fastball arm speed and you challenge every hitter to make solid contact with any one of your pitches.
Your body gets itself back in balance and then you throw.
Your movement down the mound ends with your body centering your weight between your feet.
Once in balance, your throwing action turns into an independent action and your throwing arm path depends upon your body position at foot plant.
With an independent throwing action, you never know where each pitch will end up, the best hitter see you tip your pitches and you measure your success by your ability to survive your failures.
You front leg lift body position forces you to use your arms for balance.

As your front foot leaves the ground, when your foot placements create a hip rotation or some sort of weight shift, you end your front leg lift with all your weight over your back foot.
Your legwork keeps your weight evenly distributed around your core.
