      This is as simple and basic as you can get... I wish someone made this into a gif

      the only thing you cant really see is the grip and wrist snap thats important as well.

        TL003,

        Why go somewhere and pay for information that will ultimately destroy your arm when you can learn the basics right here for free.
        You can get the details also for free.

        1. Pendulums swing your ball and glove in a straight line between where you are throwing and the opposite from where you are throwing.
        2. Do not rotate your shoulders past the driveline.
        3. Make the ball arrive at driveline height (forehead high and fully back) by lifting it palm up before your glove leg touches down.
        4. Lock your upper ball arm in line with you chest then drive the ball inside of vertical on straight line with no acceleration disturbances (loops or path arcs) with your elbow vertically above your raised ball arm shoulder.
        5. Pronate all forward drives and releases.
        6. Produce 175 degrees of hip and shoulder rotation.
        7. Step to throw the way your body is built to forwardly drive by glove leg landing on the glove arm side of center mass (Drive line) and the ball arm leg landing on the ball arm side of center mass.

              Now that the above advice is clear as mud and could easily be said to an eight year old, I'm sure you have no questions.

              C'mon fellas, this is not what he was looking for. Try it again with some thought as to how someone could explain it to a kid.

                Seems pretty easy to understand to me.

                How do you know what he was asking for, are you a mind reader? How do you know that he does not understand what Dirt posted?

                If he doesnt understand, then you know what he could do, ask some more questions, and maybe he could even go to drmikemarshall.com himself and actually learn something for himself, instead of just taking advice of Dads on here who really dont know that much about throwing a baseball, let alone pitching.

                  We always forget that you're a genius. The vast majority of baseball people have no clue what Dirt is talking about.

                  How do you know what he was asking for, are you a mind reader? How do you know that he does not understand what Dirt posted?

                  Yes, I'm a mind reader. Let me see, I also know that you are incapable of having a civil discussion without somehow either boasting or diminishing others intellect or experience.

                  If he doesnt understand, then you know what he could do, ask some more questions, and maybe he could even go to drmikemarshall.com himself and actually learn something for himself, instead of just taking advice of Dads on here who really dont know that much about throwing a baseball, let alone pitching.
                  There you go again. Its easy for most of us to tell what the real problem with your pitching career is.... and it has nothing to do with your arm.

                  Let me see, I now predict that you will respond in typical bully fashion by sticking your chest out and tellig me that you don't care what I think because I'm a nobody with no clue...yadayadayada

                    website that can help

                    Hey everyone-- i found a great website that's got a lot of info on youth baseball coaching tips, www.teachyourkidbaseball.com. There are sections working with a variety of different kinds of kids (the klutz, the natural athlete, the lefty, etc) and tips on training the batter, pitchers, and fielders. check this out for info on throwing: http://www.teachyourkidbaseball.com/index.html#A17 (I realize it's for pitching, but you might find some helpful tips too!) I've found some really helpful tips and ideas in here that I've been able to take back to my team that I coach. Enjoy! :cap:

                        Lets see Jima,

                        Dirt posts something and then I say that it sounds about right to me.

                        THEN, you post something sarcastic about how Dirt, nailed it on the head. Again, you with sarcasm and uneeded comments.

                        The APPpitch comes on here and belittles what Dirt has said and my comments about agreeing with what Dirt has said.

                        I posted nothing sarcastic or demeaning UNTIL you and APPpitch feel the need to diminish what Dirt, or what I have said.

                        Ive said before, I give as much respect as I, or others that are sharing Doc's information on here, are given. You want respect, then you should give it when responding to someone's comments.

                        That the vast majority of "baseball" people have no idea what Dirt is talking about, shows how little the "vast" majority of baseball people know. NOTHING. Randy, regionman, has come on here to tell you guys his story, about how he didnt believe it either, UNTIL he tried using Doc's stuff. And now he is able to throw hundreds of BP pitchers everyday, and his son has tramatically improved since switching to using Doc's stuff. Dirtberry has a similar story. He didnt believe either until HE TRIED IT. Yet, you guys on here refuse to believe anything they say. You guys are so ignorant that you dont even know your ignorant. That or you are too scared to try it for yourself. You are exactly where they were before they tried it.

                        You are right, I dont care what you think, because you dont know anything about pitching. There is no problem with my pitching career. Its happening exactly as it is supposed to.

                        I am very capable of having a civil discussion, with people who dont belittle or use sarcastic comments to diminish what others are saying on here. I do not start these "fights". I will however respond in fashion to what I feel is a slight to somone trying to explain how to eliminate pitching arm injuries using Mike Marshall's program, especially coming from someone who does not have a clue, let alone a PhD in exercise physiology and kinesiology to go along with a 14 year major league career and a Cy Young award.

                          Is this for pitching or general infield/outfield throws, or both?

                              Here's how I teach people to throw...

                              - Sideways, Swing, Step, And Throw

                              This is consistent with most of the Marshall stuff, but easier to understand.
