I called this form of mechanical motion and movement "The Wave Method" because the energy transfer and motion is very similar to an ocean wave.
I was sitting on the beach one day staring at the waves. You know how you sometimes just stare out in the ocean not really focused on one thing but just watching whatever is around. I was watching the waves and thought to myself "I wonder if this could work for pitching mechanics? I thought about ocean wave properties and how they moved for a few days and then decided to see if I could translate the ocean wave to pitching mechanics. Turns out they have many things in common.
Looking back on my playing days I remembered many coaches and instructors telling me these "cues" and "mechanical actions" to perform to help my performance. I thought about some like "load the back leg", and "explode down the mound" and thought....Well a wave doesn't load on the back side...a wave doesn't "explode" it crashes.
So I began to evaluate everything I was told and heard and found that majority of what I was told did not apply to the Ocean Wave concept.
A wave does not twitch, pause, come to a "balanced" position. Nor does it load and "push" away from the shore to gain more energy.
A wave builds up its momentum and energy towards the shore, comes to a crest where the face of the wave is sucking the energy up to the highest point, and then all of the energy crashes either left or right on to the shore.
The wave never stopped and then sped up. It didn't fight or go against anything in front of it.
On the mental side, a wave does not hesitate. It takes everything is can get whether great or small and releases all of the energy. There is no pause, there is no indecisiveness, it simply takes what it can get and releases everything.
This is the main philosophy within The Wave Method. I teach players how to build up the most momentum (without sacrificing control...until we understand sacrifice) and release all of the energy to the plate. There is no loss of energy within this motion. Within traditional teachings and conventional styles of throwing guys are very inefficient and working way to hard to try and get a result.
Pitching is not as energy intensive as people think. But, it is way more detailed and specific than people currently understand. especially in regards to angles and positioning.
There is a path of least resistance that produces a high energy output. The Wave Method can and will show you EXACTLY what you need to know. Come check it out.
