What size do I need? Baseball gloves come in many different sizes made to fit different ages, positions and games (softball gloves). For adults in baseball most outfielders use 12” to 13” whereas infielders and pitchers use 10 ” to 12”. Softball players usually use 12” to 14” accommodate the larger ball. Care should be taken when choosing a glove for a youth player. Youths range from 9” to 11”. 8 year olds can often use 11” based on their size. Many teenagers may fit into 12”.
Why? Well, I saw good teams play, but the main reason was not that simple. I learned more about what goes on in the game, the many decisions that are made, and the numerous and small factors that determine the outcome of each play and, eventually, the game. Scoring baseball games was the key.
Instead, at the peak of your leg lift, your weight should have already shifted, your drive knee should be inside your drive hip, and your lead hip should already be driving towards home. The early you shift your weight, the easy your trasition will be into the stride. The stride is the second most important element of the pitching mechanics. Stride speed and length are both vitally important to velocity. The only way to increase both aspects is through an effective back leg drive. In order to achieve proper back leg drive, you must avoid over collapsing the drive knee past the drive foot. The “drop and drive” isn’t inherently flawed, but you must collapse too drastically. You should be pushing towards, not dropping your weight over the rubber.
