Coach Matt A. describes how to throw a baseball like Cleveland's Francisco Lindor

Key takeaways
1. gather the ball to the center of your body at your chest with 2 hands
2. from the infield we use a "medium arm circle"...as compared to outfielders and pitchers who use a larger arm circle...while catchers use a very small arm circle
3.  break your hands thumbs down and pull your arm back staying "above the water"
4.  keeping your hips closed until you release the ball use a crow hop step and deliver the ball to the base
