11 Dec Pitching- How consistent are you?
Posted at 17:34h
Pitchers… remember, if you show us that you can actually land your breaking ball for a strike we have to respect it. If you can locate your fastball to both sides of the plate, we can’t eliminate a quadrant. What happens if you show some type of feel for a Change-Up? Imagine if you are able to do these things on a consistent basis. You will be able to consistently change eye levels while disrupting our timing, not to mention giving us a little bit extra to think about with two strikes.
We are all enamored with radar guns and velocity, but the ability to command the zone with your entire arsenal will always trump a flashy gun reading.
Strike One always sounds sweet! Continue cultivating your craft gentleman…
