Here are my videos:

- Side 1:
- Side 2:
- Side 3:
- Side 4:

- Back 1:
- Back 2:
- Back 3:

One of my biggest problems is bending the elbow in the follow-thru (I tend to pull up. It used to be a lot worse, but I would really like to get myself to just let the ball roll off my hand and follow-thru with a straight arm). I only bend the elbow when throwing a strike ball. When I throw at spares, I keep my arm completely straight, so it's obvious the bending comes from trying to hook the ball.

Another problem is my excessive tilting to the right (see video "Back 3"). I don't just drop the shoulder, I also tilt the whole spine to the right, which moves my release point far from my ankle. Any exercises or tricks to force me to stop tilting so much?

What do you think about my footwork tempo? Is it a bit too fast? What about the end of the slide. Do I stop too abruptly (I'm asking because my foot stops and then my body keeps going forward and up)?

One final question about the grip. If you look at the attached picture, you'll see a gap between my hand and the ball at the pinkie finger. Is this ok or not? My span is not too short, it could be a bit too long (1/16" to 1/8").

I try to keep my arm and hand completely relaxed, that's why my wrist is not cupped in the initial downswing, but I do cup it at the top of the swing.
