Excellent mechanics for the fastpitch student 7 décembre 2003
Par Marvin L. Medcalf - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Without a doubt, the finest book I have ever read dealing with the accurate approach for the fastpitch female pitcher. By follwing the detailed analysis that Cheri brings from her many years of experience, one can see the kinetic breakdown of the pitching motion in step by step form. I have picked up many ideas and pointers to use with my daughter, and I would highly recommend this book to anyone serious about the proper mechanics of fastpitch softball pitching.

Good for an established pitcher 30 octobre 2004
Par Lady on the Left - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Cheri Kempf has written a fine book for the established female pitcher. She also makes a few attempts to relate her wisdom to the coaching of the beginner, but that is where I find this book most lacking. My daughter just began pitching this year, and I'm really searching for something that gives instruction from day one. Kempf gives numerous drills that are wonderful for correcting mistakes in the established pitcher's form, but I just felt that it lacked the beginning steps that I was looking for.

While the book did correct a number of things that my daughter had been taught--like worrying about "opening the gate and closing the gate" with the hips, which Kempf says is worthless and can lead to knee injuries--I wanted more for the beginner. However, if you, your daughter or a girl you coach IS an established pitcher who is looking to correct bad habits, learn new pitches, learn how to mentally prepare for games and the like, I doubt there is a better book out there. It just didn't fill all of my needs.

One thing in an earlier review that I must comment on: why on Earth would someone criticize this book because there is a picture of Amanda Freed on the cover? There are also pictures of Michelle Smith and Lisa Fernandez within the book which are put there to give the reader an idea of correct form. Do I know what Kempf's connection is to any of these women? No, but I do know that those photos could not have been used without permission from each woman. The women concerned obviously don't have a problem with their likenesses being used in the book, so how could anyone else complain about it?

Simply the best Fastpitch Softball pitching reference, ever 4 septembre 2009
Par Don Mckay - Publié sur
Format: Broché
"The Softball Pitching Edge" is simply the best Fastpitch softball pitching book, ever. The first four chapters ("Pre-Motion Presentation", "Feet and Legs", "Arms and Posture", and "Timing of the Motion") set the beginning pitcher (and her parents) on her way by detailing and developing sound mechanics. The rest of the book is a fantastic resource for the intermediate or advanced pitcher and any fastpitch softball coach, teaching the mechanics, grips and body position required for pitching the drop, the change-up, the rise, the curve, and the screwball. It concludes with a section titled "Five more Factors for Excellent Pitching" which cover the importance of the catcher, practice routines and game preparation, mental makeup, physical conditioning, and communication. In short, it covers anything that could possibly be required to instruct a Fastpitch softball pitcher.

There is so much that this book offers that it is difficult to narrow down exactly the one thing it does best. The chapters on mechanics go through every single part of the motion of a straight fastball pitch. Not only does it offer detailed explanations on the "why", but it also dispels common misconceptions about pitching. One example is why the adage "open the door, close the door" is the wrong approach for pitchers. I have heard "open the door, close the door" since I started coaching, but I am now convinced that the author is correct, and will incorporate this knowledge into my own teaching.

Each chapter has multiple drills that reinforce the correct mechanics discussed. Even more helpful are the "Catching Common Errors" sub-chapters, which help a coach diagnose problems and identify which drills will help correct those problems. There are also hundreds of detailed pictures so that the reader can see and understand each and every movement and grip.

This is also one of the few softball books I have seen that advocates the use of videoing practice. Better yet, this is the only softball book that I know of that shows you exactly how to conduct a video analysis of a pitcher. This book is worth every penny just for this information alone (pages 52 to 54).

Finally, it not only teaches the mechanics of pitching, but also how to pitch -- specifically how to locate pitches inside and outside the strike zone, where the catcher should be positioned, and the movement one can expect on various different pitches. This is invaluable information for pitchers, catchers, and coaches alike.

"The Softball Pitching Edge" is a must-buy if you are a Fastpitch softball coach at any level, a parent of a pitcher at any but the highest level, or a pitcher herself who wants to get better.
Good for a newbie parent willing to learn and practice with their daughter 20 février 2015
Par Douglas Richardson - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle avec audio/vidéo Achat vérifié
I purchased this and two other pitching books last summer when my 10U daughter decided she wanted to start pitching. This book is, without question, the most useful of the 3 books. I have very little baseball experience and no pitching experience (either baseball or softball). My daughter and I attended a league provided intro to pitching class but I was still left wondering how to proceed. Most parents in my situation (i.e., don't know squat about pitching) opt for a pitching coach, but I wanted to see how far I could take her myself first.

Cheri does an excellent job explaining the fundamental mechanics and also the approach to take when making adjustments. I've relied almost solely on her advice and my daughter has made tremendous progress in the last 7 months, with us practicing on average about 1.5 hours 1-2 times per week.

I can't comment on the quality of the chapters that cover the more advanced pitches as my daughter isn't ready for them yet, but the chapters on the fastball and fundamentals are excellent.

Easy, comprehensive breakdown for new and advanced pitchers! 26 avril 2008
Par B. Christensen - Publié sur
Format: Broché
We love this book. We borrowed it from the library twice before finally purchasing. Its the best step by step coaching book we've found. What impressed me the most is that Kempf stresses proper mechanics long before the pitcher ever hits the mound. It gives drills and corrections to help insure good mechanics and safety first. We highly recommend this book to any aspiring pitcher!
