What is the difference between “Pitching Lesson” and “Pitch Analysis”?
A “Pitching Lesson” focuses primarily on mechanics; from the side angle our Pros are able to do a complete mechanical breakdown and get your mechanics on track. The “Pitch Analysis” uses the view from behind the mound to breakdown each pitch that you are throwing. From this view we are able to see your release point and the movement you are putting on each specific pitch.
