This study examined forearm pronation in relation to both the vertical and horizontal ball movement measured for 2 variations of the fastball pitch. Ten healthy collegiate baseball pitchers participated in the study (age: 19.4 +/- 0.7 yr, height: 1.90 +/- 0.06 m, mass: 88.50 +/- 9.05 kg). Reflective markers were placed at the level of each joint center's location, and standard high-speed video techniques were used to record the participants as they threw 10 maximal effort fastball pitches… CONTINUE READING
