The elimination of Linear Movement & Momentum is original to Outman Methodology™ for Pitching a Baseball on the Vertical Plane and Fritz Outman as its source.

IN GENERAL, WHETHER INTENDED OR UNINTENDED, INCIDENTAL OR SIGNIFICANT, ANY AND ALL LINEAR MOVEMENT & MOMENTUM THAT OCCURS BEFORE initiation of (and, therefore, that occurs other than in direct result of) ROTATIONAL MOVEMENT & MOMENTUM AND ROTATIONAL ACCELERATION in execution of every of the manifold variations on the theme of conventional mechanics for pitching a baseball are both detrimental to ALL pitching-performance factors and deleterious to the health of the pitcher (i.e. damage & injury to the elbow of the pitching-arm; damage & injury to the pitching-shoulder; and the development of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome as-well-as various additional  pitching-related muscle pulls, strains and tears).

IN EXECUTION OF EVERY mechanical employ of the human physiology for pitching a baseball other than correct execution of advanced overall mechanical execution Finalized Outman Methodology for pitching a baseball on the vertical plane incorporating advanced the "Now Moment" LINEAR MOVEMENT AND MOMENTUM (active Linear acceleration of the body of the pitcher) in the direction of the catcher BEFORE initiation of Rotational Movement & Momentum and Rotational Acceleration ARE INTUITIVELY EMPLOYED BEING CONSIDERED ESSENTIAL, BEING CONSIDERED ELEMENTAL TO EXECUTION.

COUNTER INTUITIVELY, AND TOTALLY CONTRARY to what is taught in execution of EVERY OTHER mechanical employ of the human physiology for pitching a baseball, CORRECT EXECUTION OF advanced overall mechanical execution Finalized Outman Methodology for pitching a baseball on the vertical plane incorporating advanced the "Now Moment" ELIMINATES LINEAR MOVEMENT AND MOMENTUM of the body of the pitcher in the direction of the catcher BOTH BEFORE initiating Rotational Movement & Momentum and Rotational Acceleration AND BEFORE release of the baseball from the pitching-Hand of the pitcher.

MOREOVERCORRECT EXECUTION OF advanced overall mechanical execution Finalized Outman Methodology for pitching a baseball on the vertical plane incorporating advanced the "Now Moment" IS THE ONLY EMPLOY OF THE HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY FOR PITCHING A BASEBALL THAT ELIMINATES LINEAR MOVEMENT AND MOMENTUM of the body of the pitcher in the direction of the catcher BOTH BEFORE initiating Rotational Movement & Momentum and Rotational Acceleration AND BEFORE release of the baseball from the pitching-Hand of the pitcher.

ELIMINATING LINEAR MOVEMENT AND MOMENTUM of the body of the pitcher in the direction of the catcher BEFORE Rotational Movement & Momentum and Rotational Acceleration is initiated and BEFORE the baseball is released from the pitching-Hand MAXIMIZES both the degree of and the benefit of Rotational Acceleration and “Follow-Through” to the release-point of the baseball from the pitching-Hand a) toward creating accelerating force to be applied to the surface of the baseball by the tips of the Fingers of the pitching-Hand at the release-point of the baseball from the pitching-Hand, which results in an increase in the velocity of the pitched-baseball and b) toward imparting greater rotation to the surface of the baseball by the Fingertips of the pitching-Hand at the release-point of the baseball from the pitching-Hand, which results in more movement, more sharply breaking movement and nearer to the batter movement of the pitched-baseball on its flight to the catcher.

5

AGAIN, LINEAR MOVEMENT AND MOMENTUM of the body of the pitcher in the direction of the catcher that occur BEFORE initiation of Rotational Movement & Momentum and Rotational Acceleration AND BEFORE the baseball is released from the Hand of the pitcher ARE DETRIMENTAL, DELETERIOUS & DAMAGING by reason of:

a) CONSTITUTING variables in execution of each pitching-delivery that produce variability of result that ADVERSELY EFFECT (diminish) the performance factors of velocity of, command over and movement of the pitched-baseball relative to what is potentially achievable in employ of the human physiology for pitching a baseball as dictated by the physical laws that immutably, inexorably and inviolably govern the earthly, physical environment within which we human beings live, function and pitch a baseball,

b) INFLICTING AVOIDABLE damaging stress on the body of the pitcher (elbow of the pitching-arm, the pitching-shoulder & the development of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome), 

AND

c) BEING INCOMPATIBLE with engineering an employ of the human physiology for pitching a baseball that is the highest performing, most efficient, most effective, least complex and least injurious (the best) achievable as dictated by the physical laws that immutably, inexorably and inviolably govern the earthly, physical environment within which we human beings live, function and pitch a baseball.

LINEAR MOVEMENT & MOMENTUM IS NOT MERELY DIRECTIONAL.

LINEAR MOVEMENT & MOMENTUM is also DIRECTED, which means that some physical action must be involved toward initiating (providing impetus forlinear movement & momentum.

IN CORRECT EXECUTION of advanced overall mechanical execution Finalized Outman Methodology™ for pitching a baseball on the vertical plane incorporating advanced the "Now Moment", what appears to be linear movement & momentum of the upper body in the direction of the catcher because of a shift in the center of gravity of the body of the pitcher  resulting from parting the hands from "SET" and "flipping" the glove-Hand skyward (which initiates rotational movement and momentum of the glove-side of the body of the pitcher)  followed by extending (and, then, retracting the front pivot-Foot & Leg) as part of execution of advanced the "Now Moment" IS NOT linear movement & momentum. 

NO PHYSICAL ACTION toward initiating (providing impetus for) linear movement & momentum in the direction of the catcher is present.  

THAT MOVEMENT & MOMENTUM of the upper body in the direction of the catcher IS NOT DIRECTED by reason of any physical activity involving the rear pivot-Leg & Foot.

ON THE CONTRARY, as the glove-Hand is being "flipped" skyward from "SET" (initiating rotational movement & momentum of the glove-side of the body) followed by extending (and, then, retracting the front pivot-Foot & Leg) as part of execution of advanced the "Now Moment", the combination of further buckling & bending the rear pivot-Knee from its buckled & bent at "SET" positioning, focusing the weight of the body that is being supported on the rear pivot-Leg and Foot onto the inner edge of the Heel of the rear pivot-Foot AND keeping the weight of the upper body rearward TOGETHER ELIMINATE any physical activity that would INITIATE linear movement & momentum in the direction of the catcher.


8

RATHER, the upper body movement in the direction of the catcher is rotational in nature and is, therefore, moving through AN ARC in the direction of the catcher in result of parting the hands from "SET" and "flipping" the glove-Hand skyward followed by extending (and, then, retracting the front pivot-Foot & Leg) as part of execution of advanced the "Now Moment", which parting of the hands etc. shifts the center of gravity of the body of the pitcher in the direction of the catcher requiring the front pivot-Leg & Foot to be repositioned in the direction of the catcher.


9

THEREFORE, NO linear movement & momentum occurs before initiation of rotational movement & momentum, rotational acceleration or release of the baseball from the pitching-Hand of the pitcher in correct execution of advanced overall mechanical execution Finalized Outman Methodology™ for pitching a baseball on the vertical plane incorporating advanced the "Now Moment".

NOTE: FIRST RECOGNIZING the detrimental, deleterious and damaging nature of Linear Movement & Momentum (resulting from any degree of Linear Acceleration) of the body of the pitcher in the direction of the catcher occurring BEFORE initiation of Rotational Movement & Momentum, Rotational Acceleration and release of the baseball from the pitching-Hand of the pitcher AND, THEN, ELIMINATING Linear Movement & Momentum (resulting from any degree of Linear Acceleration) of the body of the pitcher in the direction of the catcher occurring BEFORE initiation of Rotational Movement &  Momentum Rotational Acceleration and release of the baseball from the pitching-Hand of the pitcher IS ORIGINAL TO OUTMAN METHODOLOGY for pitching a baseball on the vertical plane engineering and innovation!

THEREFORE, ANY reference that you might find, hear or observe in regard either to the detrimental, deleterious & damaging nature of Linear Movement & Momentum in execution of a pitching-delivery in general and/or ANY teaching that you might encounter relative to ELIMINATING LINEAR MOVEMENT & MOMENTUM (resulting from any degree of Linear Acceleration) of the body of the pitcher in the direction of the catcher in execution of any mechanical employ of the human physiology for pitching a baseball other than advanced overall mechanical execution Finalized Outman Methodology for pitching a baseball on the vertical plane incorporating advanced the “Now Moment” has been appropriated (misappropriated) from my writings, from my work, from what I teach, from me as the original source.
