Coaching - Website Resources
The NPA is a membership site ($50 to join), but it has a great repository of articles about various aspects of pitching.
The ABCA is a good site for finding periodical or book suggestions.
The Mauer Quickswing site, although product related, has some decent videos that show a short, compact swing.
There are numerous other sites out there. Easiest way to start find these are to Google a particular interest, issue, or question and start surfing.
