    Looks pretty good, especially for his age.

    I would prefer that the toe of his glove-side foot pointed more at the target, if not directly at it. He also leaves his pitching arm side foot behind on the rubber, which can limit his hip rotation.

      I agree with Chris. I've noticed that my players that keep that front toe closed tend to have accuracy problems.

      As a side note, I'm surprised the ump let your son pitch wearing a white wristband on his left arm. In most leagues pitchers aren't allowed to wear wristbands, especially white ones.

        GS foot should be pointing at home plate.

          GS = Glove Side?

            Yes.

            The issue is that he never opens his hips and likely throws mostly all-arm as a result.

              I'm from the Dick Mills rule of thought. Not sure if he is leading with hip?

              Land with the lead before rotating hips, then rotating down at the waist

              Foot should be pointed at a Right handed batter not at catcher (Miles).

              Stride 100 percent of of height and land on a flexed leg.

              Stay low and have an athletic approach to pitching.
