Funny I asked this question yesterday, and got a nice answer. If only all customer service was this prompt!
When I bowled regularly, I remember an instructor telling me to do something as small as shifting the position my pinky was in relation to the bowling ball. It sounded absurd. Yet after a month, my average in the league increased 15 points. The smallest of adjustments can pay big dividends.
Great article, that release point thing is really interesting as well! Watching the Tigers telecast I know they’ve talked about the Tigers coaches working with Anibal but I don’t recall anything they said jumping out, other than that they were pleased with him carrying out the adjustments on the mound. i.e. he was coachable. Maybe that movement was what they were happy about.
I half-dismissed his improvement based on pitching to KC, Cle, KC, Cle, Min, but this makes sense too, hopefully improved Anibal shows up tonight!
