Random Thought of the Day - It's all about the throwers
The longer I play and coach the more convinced I become that it's all about the throwers. Big Dumb Athletes are a dime a dozen, but it takes time to cultivate a great thrower. I am interested to hear how everyone goes about teaching throwing. We tend to spend not quite half of practice on individual throwing drills. I honestly, feel like this is not enough. We should probably spend more time on it. In terms of mechanics, we never gather everyone around and say this is how you throw. We usually walk around and correct things that we see. I wonder if it would be better to start talking mechanics as soon as the players show up. I've always been afraid of running people off by being boring, but maybe it's a better approach. Any thoughts? Anyone still reading this thing?
