Throw the ball behind you
The first three, as well as throwing the ball closer to you, are the most effective ways to do that. But there’s another great trick to throw farther – and that’s using the same basic mechanics to make it a little bit easier to throw, more consistent with how you move when you’re throwing a ball.
One of the best things about baseball is the throwing mechanics. You can run as fast as you want, you’ve got all sorts of fun gadgets under your glove making it easy to throw, and the way you throw the ball makes for fun variations. Throw a foul line? Throw the ball so you only have to cover about a third of the field, the other third being a little more difficult to hit in the air than the “regular” ball. Throw a curveball to someone? Throw in the strike zone and hope your arm does what it’s supposed to!
That’s where the basics come in. I mentioned those last two things above as being particularly effective techniques to use when throwing away from home plate. But, using the same mechanics you do for throwing a normal baseball (and even throwing a slider) you’re already throwing so far (and so consistently, especially if you’re running, running fast) that what’s essentially just throwing the ball further (without any of that extra distance) is even more effective. If you use what’s known as the T-Shirt Method that works just like the regular baseball throwing motion, you’re even farther from home plate, and will be throwing the ball so far in the direction of home plate that when you’re at the plate, you won’t even have to turn to look at the baseball as you take it.
The technique is called T-Shirt, after the way it’s usually described. But, as mentioned earlier, the mechanics still work just like they do for normal baseball. The only difference is that instead of running at the same speed as you normally do and trying to catch the ball on the ground before it bounces back off, you’re now using it to throw farther away.
Now, obviously, you can learn the mechanics for normal baseball, the way they’ve been taught in school, and maybe even the way they’re taught by coaches who specialize in teaching baseball for pitchers. But, to me, if you’re a pitcher, you’re probably better going to a professional or at least a high level coach where the mechanics
