The easiest and lightest way to stay warm for me is:

underarmor compression shirt.
t-shirt
light long sleeve shirt
fleece vest
golf insulated windbreaker (I like the ones that let you remove the sleeves either at the elbow or shoulder)


As for keeping your throwing hand warm, some guys around here have been using the QB handwarmer tunnel thing. When they throw they just flip it around to their back and move it back to the front when they are done.

Those are popular here too. I had one and it annoyed me though. Got in the way. I just throw the hand heaters into the gloves and pockets.

The QB hand warmer is the best...a few hand warmers, a small shamwow, and I don't even waste time turing it around anymore. Layers man, layers...

My current recipe is Pertex jacket on top of Merino wool shirt of sufficiently low density to remain breathing and/or technical shirts. And sodium acetate packs for reusability instead of single use hand warmers. My views on wearing layers changed a bit considering i had to remove the thicker of my two shirts from under the new Pertex jacket. Getting the sweat out reduces the amount of clothing you need in cold weather dramatically. That reduces mechanical restriction a lot so you'll throw farther.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
