  1. Step 1 does not exist in an actual throw. The elbow is not just in front of the body when you throw. The elbow is out front and beside the body. If you are going to do any kind of wrist flips, be sure to keep your elbow above the shoulder and to the side when you start and then it comes forward from there–where it will be when you actually throw a ball. We aren't throwing darts, we are throwing baseballs!

  2. I tried out for the team this year and my throwing was horrible but I made the team cause I can really make contact with the ball and catch but my only focus is throwing accurate I'm a junior now and I'm 6'4 first base I hope this video really helps me out ! Thx
