Judging Timing in baseball pitchers is more of an art than a science, in part because the milestones researchers are looking at are of questionable reliability, and thus validity.

Judging Timing in Baseball Pitchers: An Overview

Why have studies of my worked failing to see what I'm seeing?

Because, while the conventional wisdom says to look at the pitcher's front foot -- at (Stride) Foot Contact -- when judging a baseball pitcher's Timing, I've found that (S)FC is no longer a reliable milestone.

It no longer -- consistently -- identifies the moment when the pitcher's arm starts to come under load.

As a result, I no longer use (Stride) Foot Contact when judging Timing in baseball pitchers.

Instead, I look at the pitching arm.
