I'm sorry, Nellie, I'm not sure if I quite understand you. When you see push my hips forward through the baseline, are you saying for to move them left towards the baseline? And you're suggesting that I do this before I begin my toss? Right now I toss, then basically lower my right hip while raising my left hip, then hitting the ball. And what do you mean "both knees in front"?

Lucky you.
You should have played shortstop or pitched in school.
I quit baseball in 6th grade, just never enjoyed it. Picked up tennis in 9th grade and never looked back, but I appreciate that compliment. I do play a little rec league softball in which I've surprised some guys with some decent throws in from the outfield.
