  • The Marshall Technique

    Can someone explain this to me? I am curious as to how it is different from the norm, and why Dr. Marshall has been ostracized for it.

      Interesting. He is speaking in medical terms. Luckily I am educated enough to have some idea what he is talking about. I need to look further to see it in action.

          From reading his website it sounds like it would look like "slinging" motion in practice. I need to see it.

          Having trouble finding a video of it in action. I can kind of pitcure it from the written descriptions.

              look on Dr. MArshalls web site and you will find pitchers throwing with the motion

                  Now I find the vids

                  Anywho, his method achieves the same end as "conventional" windups. Its just the the means for reaching that end are different. At the release point, both Dr. Marshall's and "conventional" put the pitcher in the same position. Doc's method puts less strain on the arm. I need to try it sometime.

                    This is exactly the point.

                      Some people will argue with this statement, but I think it's pretty accurate.

                      The same thing goes for the Outman mechanics.

                        It kind of reminds me of a cricket bowler in a way.

                          You read my mind. I was just about to ask about Outman. I tried researching him a month or two ago, and couldn't find much that described it in a way that I could picture it. I know about his son, Josh (duh, I *am* a Phillies fan) and how he went away from those mechanics when he advanced in pro ball.

                          From the descriptions I have read it sounds like it involves putting the thowing arm over the head, next to the ear. The description I read wasn't very clear. Like it was some highly guarded secret.

                            ...Marshall wants his guys thinking crow hop, cricket bowler, and javelin (thrower?) but to do something that looks more conventional.

                            Marshall calls it the crow hop throwing rhythm. The idea is to get the PAS arm up before the GS foot plants.

                            I think this idea has a lot of merit.

                              I like the theory behind the Marshall Technique.
