Re: Re: Are pitchers "rotational", "linear", or both?

> Just like hitting, pitching is a combination of both rotation and directional mechanics. It is
not the discus where direction doesn't count. With pitching, the core rotates, but after plant
the arm moves in a linear way towards the target. If you throw around the ball you lose
velocity and movement. jima


I agree. Would you agree that the bat of a hitter is similar to the arm of a pitcher?
