Video of the backwards curve ball drill

A week or so ago I had a request to provide some video of the fastpitch backwards curve ball drill. It’s the one I mentioned in a previous post, where you stand with your back to the catcher, then turn and throw the curve without moving your feet.

Well, you ask and I provide. Here’s a view of the drill from the front of the pitcher, demonstrated by Lake Forest College’s Kristi Gandy (who incidentally loves this drill):

And here’s another look from the side:

Hope that helps make it clear!

Update: I finally figured out how to embed the video. Had to cheat and go on the software’s forum, though.
