Internal rotation, also called medial rotation, is rotation toward the body.
In pitching, internal rotation refers to the medial rotation of the arm where the axis of rotation is the length of the humerus. During a pitch, this usually looks like forward rotation of the forearm.
Passive internal rotation occurs as an inertial reaction during the deceleration phase of the pitch.
