She is definitely ball out at 12 vs ball at catcher and not ball up at 9. Awesome whip at the bottom and hand works medial as well on followthrough.Can’t find an IR coach in my area so learning all I can on DFP always looking to improve anybody got some suggestions.
She looks like a real athlete. If she loves to pitch and wants to play in college, you and she have to go "all in" on pitching.Can’t find an IR coach in my area so learning all I can on DFP always looking to improve anybody got some suggestions.
Agreed! I was going to say the same say thing but got distracted with making sure you understood what everyone was talking about with her hand/ball position. I think given where she is at you could find a coach that is willing to work with her on pitches...I would however be careful if they start discussing changing her mechanics. Coming back here and asking PC said "xxxxxxx" is that OK, is just fine. On some pitches especially the rise she may alter just a little how she does things to really get the rotation right since it is more than just a change grip and ball pressure type thing. To that end once the PC starts explaining how different pitches work she should feel free to work on different grips and finger pressure with the ball at see what that does to her pitches, this should help her with movement on her pitches but the change and the rise are just different animals.She looks like a real athlete.

You've done a great job with her. But, she needs a PC now. Tweaking lower body mechanics or her arm motion will not get her where she needs to go. That will get you some minor incremental gains, but that isn't going to be enough for her to be a top D1 pitcher.
She has to learn rise/drop/change. It is going to be a real struggle without some expertise.
Learning the pitches is a different process than learning the basic motion. The pitches are more unique to each pitcher. There are no absolutes, and there are at least ten different ways to throw each pitch. Your DD has to find the methods that work for her.
Also, she needs someone (not a Daddy) to evaluate the pitches. Does her drop ball really drop? Is she slowing her arm down? Is she giving the pitch away? Daddies don't always see "the truth" about their children.
She doesn't need to see a PC every week to learn the pitches. Usually, it takes a couple of weeks to fully process what the PC taught her.
