Pitching Mechanics Analysis
Marshall Pitching Motion
Few baseball pitching gurus are the subject of more interest, and more
controversy, than Dr. Mike Marshall. Dr. Marshall has to be one
of the most polarizing people in the world.
You either love him or you hate him.
Since there is significant confusion about exactly what
Dr. Mike Marshall advocates, I thought it would be interesting
if I analyzed a couple of video clips that demonstrate the
pitching mechanics that Dr. Mike Marshall advocates.

The video clip above shows the same basic thing as the first
clip, but with a few significant differences.

Finally, the video clip above is a Catcher's eye view a one
of Dr. Mike Marshall's pitchers throwing a pronation curve. In
my opinion, Dr. Mike Marshall's pronation curve is one of the
best pitches out there.
The problem is that the fastballs that Dr. Mike
Marshall's pitchers throw are not nearly as good in terms of
both movement and velocity.
