TOWEL PITCHING DRILL – PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER – The towel pitching drill is a well-known drill that helps players snap their wrists and put the pitching motion together. Pitchers start with a small towel that they tape in the center and at the ends to keep it from flying apart. Pitchers should then lay down and make a line of tape from one end of their body to the other, to get a good sense of distance.

Next, players place a chair at one end of the line and they stand at the other end. There should be a line of tape down the center of the chair as well. Pitchers take a stride and practice snapping the towel down onto the center line of the chair.
