#1, I will never teach a breaking ball to anyone that doesn't have good mechanics because they'll struggle with consistency. #2, Most all of my pitchers grip the curveball and slider the same way but the how the hand comes through is 2 completely different motions. #3, almost every offspead pitch is better if the pitcher stays back just a wee bit longer with his upon half. Key to good breaking balls, good mechanics

#1:  What are good mechanics.

#2:  It's impossible for the human body every throw the ball the same way twice.  You have a better shot at winning the lotto 11x in one day. 

#3:  What stays back, how long does it stay back.. How do you get them to stay back the exact same way without it being a different motion.  

Just having a little fun Kip.

Good mechanics are when the lower half works with the upper half with consistency. And the front side must work with the backside.

I don't get into being exact, more about being an athlete and trying to repeate the same delivery as best that you can

The head and shoulders and total upper half stays back until the front hip can't go any further towards the target.

I will hold the front of the pitchers forehead and not let it go anywhere until I believe the lower half has gone as far as it can go. This also allows very good seperation of the hips and shoulders so that they can also work together.

Stay tall
Stay back
Stay connected
