    Opps! I see air. Right here she is leaping. Notice that the pitching arm is just beginning to come up for the windmill revolution. Both feet are in the air.
  • Picture 4
    Picture 4
    The pivot foot lands while the non pivot foot is in the air. The pivot foot is a considerable distance from the pitching plate. The arm is at the apex and is just beginning its downward thrust.
  • Picture 5
    Picture 5
    Finally the non pivot is on the ground. The arm has come down and no more impetus can be gained from the pivot foot.
  • Picture 6

    The pitch is released as the pivot foot begins to follow through and drag away

    And now she is ready to field a batted ball.

    Wow! Look at the big strong stride…and the pivot foot still on the ground. You go girl!
  • Picture 5

    No problem here except it looks like it might hurt her ankle

    And she finishes just fine

    Strong start.

    All okay.
  • Picture 4

    Still doing fine. That heel off the rubber is okay - toe did not go forward, foot just bent.
  • Picture 5
    Picture 5
    Whoa! What a leap. Arm is just reaching the apex. Power, down thrust will start when she reaches her terrific new push point.
  • Picture 6
    Picture 6
    Tremendous power coming down - look at the dust fly.

    And then the release.

    Is this a new illegal pitch signal??

    Ohh. Looks like she going Up rather than Forward.
  • Picture 5
    Picture 5
    Yep! Pulled herself right off the ground.
  • Picture 6
    Picture 6
    At least the non pivot foot definitely landed first so there will be no replant/push.
  • Picture 7
    Picture 7
    Just a follow through as she releases.

    Don't worry about the non pivot (back) foot

    See. It's still touching the rubber.

    The step.
  • Picture 5
    Picture 5
    Looks like she is going more forward than upward…that's good.
  • Picture 6
    Picture 6
    But how'd she get way out there with her non pivot still in the air? Dragging? Maybe a little air? Arm not at apex. Could push again.
  • Picture 7
    Picture 7
    Doesn't look like re-push. Arm is coming down & she is almost on the top of her foot.
  • Picture 8
    Picture 8
    Pivot foot has completely turned.
  • Picture 9

    Unless you can see air up around slide 5 & 6, you gotta think she is legal.

    Oops! She's in the air. Notice her prior drag marks - she is gonna leap clear to there.
  • Picture 4
    Picture 4
    Yep. There she is, way out at those drag marks when her non pivot comes down.

    Then she follows through...

    OK, here we go. Hmmm. She's right-handed and it looks like she is gonna step with her pivot foot first.

    She is! This could be interesting.
  • Picture 3

    A big step too!

    So is she gonna release the pitch now?
  • Picture 5

    Well…no...
  • Picture 6

    She's gonna take another step!
  • Picture 7

    Still mid-step.

    And she does.
