Abstract

The purpose of this study was to describe the activity of both the upper and lower extremity muscles during the windmill softball pitch. Seven female post-pubescent softball pitchers volunteered for the study. Pitchers were analyzed with surface electromyography, and motion analysis software. The muscle firing patterns were described during five phases of the windmill softball pitch.
