Seems I worded some of that improperly, but totally get your points. Instead of "forcing the rollover" it should've read "forcing the palm down on follow through"...which is creating bullet spin but slowing down her velocity in the process. Short arming her delivery was more to do with the coach describing her arm circle being off.This is the craziest thing I've read in a while. T
a) What does "forcing the rollover at release" mean?
b) What does "short-arming her delivery" mean?
c) Who cares if it is 10-4 spin instead of 12-6? It doesn't matter...a large portion of the top pitchers throw bullet spin.
Perfect spin matters when she wants to throw a drop or rise, *NOT* on the average, ordinary fastball.
Huh??? "Extend the arm circle?" What does that mean?
Take a video of her from 2B and post it. We can tell you in 30 seconds if there is a problem with her arm circle.
I have two aunts (both in their late 90s) who are the nicest, most trustworthy people on the planet. They don't know anything about softball pitching--which appears to be similar to your PC.
The PC doesn't know what he/she is doing. He is selling you a load of crock.
I can post 100 pictures of the top pitchers with the ball facing home at 12. The man is Adam Folkard, who was *THE* best pitcher in the world. The women are Odicci Alexander, Montana Fouts and Cat Osterman.

Don't get me wrong, she has other mechanical flaws that need to be worked out that are also contributing to some of the regression...the biggest being her opening prematurely with a bit of a crow hop then replanting with her drive foot turned sideways.
I'll try to get some video from 2B tomorrow and post. Everything I have that's recent is from the side.
Really appreciate the feedback!
