And each pitch is like a chess move. You’ve thrown two fastballs in a row, so you might come in with a curveball to throw off the batter’s timing. However, he’ll expect that, so maybe you’ll throw a fastball inside before he can react to it. The catcher will signal to the pitcher what he thinks should happen; the pitcher might agree or might “shake him off” and consider the next suggestion. Or the coach signals the catcher what to do and he passes it on to the pitcher.
So what can you do instead? Work on stretching and lean muscle development for your upper body. A more elastic and lean muscle means you can whip the bat through the zone much quicker. Also, make sure you include good, solid wrist exercises to strengthen that area. Stronger wrists allow you to turn the bat over quicker, this improving your bat speed.
