S8E7 - Pitching Velocity and Command: how it can be compromised by Leading with the Elbow

Using a comparison to a quarterback's arm position, I discuss one of the most common flaws in shoulder mechanics that can cause inefficient spin, loss of velocity, and diminished command of the baseball. Leading with the elbow is especially common in youth pitchers.
