High Level Throwing: Tree Pose Throws

ONE Softball is committed to bringing you technical information that is factual and modeled by what the best players actually do. We will periodically bring you short videos that show throwing biomechanics, drills, and tips.

This throwing drill is specifically for outfielders as it helps teach them about stride direction and how the trunk needs to rotate back against the stride during a throw, creating separation and tension between those two structures. This is one-way velocity can be created! The Tree-Pose Throw also trains athletes on correct timing of when the throwing arm should work back into load in relation to the stride!
