Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Windmill softball pitching is a highly skilled sport combined with coordination and explosive force. Besides many kinematic and kinetic analyses relative to it, its mechanics can also be understood through the EMG analysis of a pitcher’s leading foot and throwing arm. The purpose of this study was to investigate how the activated throwing arm and leading foot of a pitcher contribute to his strength while pitching.
