I'm often asked, what is the best arm slot for pitchers? Is a high 3/4 slot better than a low 3/4 slot? Should I tilt my shoulders more?

A 2006 study suggests high velocity pitchers ideally have 10° of shoulder tilt. Steven Ellis So, the level shoulders advice isn't quite as bad for the very low ¾ pitchers. A pitcher has to match his shoulder rotation to his arm slot (or his arm slot to his shoulder rotation).
