Quality pitching is one of the keys to winning baseball games and most complex movements in all of sports. To throw a baseball effectively and efficiently, one must understand about backside balance, front-side balance, rotation, direction and arm path. Without proper instruction, pitching a baseball becomes more difficult for you.

Some pitchers believe that pitching velocity is about gaining more strength, whether in the arm or the body. Being fit to pitch is one things but building strength is another completely different thing and for pitcher mostly a waste of time and effort.
Some instruction on how to develop excellent Baseball pitching mechanics.
The Windup : In baseball, pitchers have the option of either throwing out of the windup or the stretch. Each player must individually decide what’s more effective.
In the windup, pitcher will either step behind the rubber or to the side, but in the stretch, the pitcher will not step, but instead lift the leg and drive home
Leg Lift: When throwing a baseball, the leg lift is the first step in the throwing motion. You have balance on the back leg first. It means for a right hand pitcher will step back with the left foot, with the weight on the right leg. This step should be straight, linear and approximately four to five and half foot lengths of the pitcher’s shoe size. As the ball is thrown, the left foot lands directly at the target, with the left shoulder, knee, hip and head all aligned with the target.
Next Step, transfer weight onto the front-side leg (left leg). During this balance transfer, the pitcher is moving linear or forward, directly at the target. This is called direction, or aligning the head, shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle toward the target.
Release Point : In the final phrase of throwing, the pitching arm will be launched into external rotation.From this rotation the throwing arm will rapidly transition into internal rotation, and the ball will be released. After that front leg should not be bent, and the upper body should be completely bent over the leg.
After the new research to makes pitching more effective is that using the body instead of just the arm, so the arm stays healthy and free from any injury. It is how a pitcher moves explosively from his back leg to his front leg that will determine the speed of the ball coming out of his hand.
