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.
If you have executed proper back leg drive, then you are almost guaranteed to increase your stride speed. The faster you move your body sideways, the faster you will throw. Also, the faster the stride, the longer your stride will be. Once your foot strikes the ground you will transition into the most important aspect of the pitching mechanics: hip to shoulder separation. Hip to shoulder separation is responsible for about 80 percent of a pitchers potential velocity. At foot strike, your hips should be completely open towards home, and your upper body should still be closed. The greater the separation between the two haves, the more velocity you will be able to generate. Always use a camera when analyzing this part or any part of your mechanics. This is truly the only way to effectively improve your pitching mechanics.
Learning the proper techniques, strength training, and drill to increase bat speed should not cause you to spend time on the disabled list. I put some of these improve bat speed training tips and tricks into action a few years ago and saw a dramatic increase in distance.
