STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study. OBJECTIVES To test for kinematic and kinetic differences between baseball pitching from a mound and long-toss on flat ground. BACKGROUND Long-toss throws from flat ground are commonly used by baseball pitchers for rehabilitation, conditioning, and training. However, there is controversy over the biomechanics and functionality of such throws. METHODS Seventeen healthy, college baseball pitchers pitched fastballs 18.4 m from a mound to a strike zone… Expand
