Instead, really focus on swing consistency and repetition to help increase the speed you bring it through the zone. Even a slight increase in overall speed (think just 2 to 5 miles per hour increase) can give you up to 40 feet extra distance, and a ton more velocity when you square one up.
Baseball Pitching Strategies Understanding Pitch Counts, Every pitcher should have baseball pitching strategies that allow them to get out of tough situations, strike batters out, and to stay one step ahead of the opposition. If you want to dominate hitters, then you need to understand how to pitch in specific counts.
Within the 0-2 count, a pitcher can throw any pitch that he thinks will either produce an easy out or a strikeout. The best 0-2 pitches you can throw are ones that appear to be a strike, but are only inches away from the strike zone. This is because umpires will typically give pitchers a strike in 0-2 count if it’s close to the plate, and it should be just far enough to where the batter will have a difficult time making contact. The best strikeout pitches are a high fastball out the zone, a sharp breaking slider away, and a curveball in the dirt because batters are known for chasing this pitch. Follow these baseball pitching strategies, and you are guaranteed to dominate batters at all levels of competition.
