In this easy to follow video Coach Parker helps the young athlete learn the mechanics and theory to mastering the drop ball. Two different styles are presented, the peel drop and the turn over drop. Each method is clearly demonstrated and explained with emphasis on muscle memory and repetition. Included are drills designed to give the pitcher instant feedback on how it feels and looks when you execute the drop ball correctly.
In the last 30 years Coach Ernie Parker has guided his pitching students, capturing nine ASA National Championships in the process.
