Yes, be it a slider, curve, change up. Also its just not throwing with the arm, its all in the wind up or pitchers mechanics.
Reason I ask, this poster and I on a Hawaii forum were arguing, why Colt Brennan failed as a Pro. I said he struggled with mechanics trying to apply it to the Pro style system, WCO to be exact.
3-step drop - Basic for a Hitch, slant, quick ins or quick outs.
5-step drop quick, 5-step drop big, 5-step drop with a hitch step - Basic for, wheel routes, deep post, deep comeback, deep sideline and others.
Learning this, along with releasing the ball is crucial for precision-timed passing....is it not?
