This is a great way to improve pitching form and ensure that a pitcher is striding towards the plate.
Tape down a strip of masking tape in your garage, the backyard, the driveway, anywhere where you have a decent amount of room - the strip should be about a foot long; this is the rubber.
Tape a strip from the middle of the rubber to a point 5-6 paces in front of the rubber. You now have a "T" shape.
Practice your pitching rotation without throwing anything... your front foot should be hitting the tape at the end of the "T" as you stride.
This will help keep you from over- or under-striding during the game.
