Athalonz discovered that the key to pitching is how the feet engage the ground. When the feet optimally engage the ground, a pitcher is able to pitch with increased velocity and command.
We developed a portable pitching mound that offers the right amount of grip, give and freedom to drive, land and pivot. Traditional practice mounds inhibit proper pitching mechanics because the drive foot cannot dig in, and the landing foot sticks or slips. This prevents the front leg from being the proper pivot point for the pitch, causing the arm to experience undue stress. Athalonz RFP Mounds have solved this problem.
