Everyone throws differently, and just like every other player, I throw up over my shoulder like I was taught. Well, my dad is the one who taught me how to throw, which was when I was 6, because I started out with Tee-Ball then I moved into fastpitch, and my dad taught me everything I know. He's been my sister's coach and so has my mom, since she was little, but she plays slow pitch, and so do I. I play both fastpitch and slowpitch, I know that might bring up some questions, like how can I do both?, and doesn't it affect your swing? The answer is, no, I can transfer back and forth from fastpitch to slowpitch without having any problems with batting, or anything. Now, that I'm playing for my high school, my coach wants me to change the way I throw, and I just can't throw the way they want me to. I haven't even heard of throwing the way they taught us. They want us to catch the ball, crow hop, bring the ball behind our shoulder-palms out, then come down over our shoulders- release infront of us, follow through, and then bend our backs and follow through with the other leg. I just can't do it! It completely screws up my throw, the ball goes to the ground. So, my question to you is, have you ever taught your girl's to throw like this?, have you ever heard of throwing like this?, and do you think I should keep throwing my way or they're way? Sorry, for such a long paragraph, I just wanted to make sure you had everything so you could understand my questions better.
