Bringing the ball back:

The Posterior Deltoid causes the Glenohumoral Joint (shoulder) to horizontally adduct and externally rotate. The Anterior Deltoid stretches to slow the external rotation and the Pectoralis Major stretches to slow the horizontal adduction. Also, the Back Extensors and Obliques cause trunk rotation.

In the lower body, the Rectus Femorus and Illiop Psoas flex the hip, bringing the leg up.

Throwing the ball:

The Pectoralis Major and Anterior Deltoid work in conjuction to both internally rotate and horizontally abduct, moving the ball forward. At the same time, the Triceps Brachii extends the elbow, providing more forward vectors. Also, the Abdominals and Obliques rotate the trunk toward the throw, also increasing forward vectors.

On the lower body, the Quadriceps extend the Femorotibular joint (knee) and the Glutes extend the hip, which further increases the forward vectors.

Recovery:

The Posterior Deltoid must undergo massive stretching to slow the motion of the arm (the reason for common Anterior Shoulder Subluxations). The rear leg comes off the ground involuntarily to balance the throw and to bring the pitcher back to a normal position

Muscles used in pitching include the quadriceps, the gluteus maximus, the abdominal muscles, the latissimus dorsi, the deltoids, the trapezius, and the rhomboids. Many more joints than muscles are used in pitching. Although you need to put your butt into it

You use almost all of your muscles. You use muscles in both legs to drive yourselves forward. You use your shoulder and all arm muscles in your throwing arm. you use your trip muscle to pull your glove arm back. you use your abdominal muscles to pull yourself forward and add force to the throw.
