Do you know what is the best pitch to throw in a 0-2 count? Or what should you throw in a 0-0 count? If you’re unsure, then here is some strategy that will help you. The 0-0 count is the most important pitch of any at bat because it can determine the rest of an at-bat. For instance, if you effectively throw a first-pitch strike, then you immediately have an advantage over the batter. You will now control the at-bat. On the other hand, if you throw a ball, the batter’s confidence rises and you are now in a situation when you might have to throw a pitch that is easier to hit.
As a young man, I thought I wanted to be a sportswriter. After taking a new job in a small town, a veteran sportswriter asked if I enjoyed baseball. I liked playing it but wasn’t much for watching. “You’ll learn to like it here,” he said, explaining that the community had a rich Little League, high school and junior college baseball heritage. He was correct; in sort order, I loved baseball, even watching baseball.
Youth Throwing Drills the most basic of all youth baseball drills, and many instructors feel that it is the most important fundamental of all. It is vital for parents to make sure that their children develop proper throwing techniques from the time they can throw a baseball, around the age of eight or so. The importance of throwing a baseball with proper grip can not be overestimated. Youth throwing drills must emphasize four important elements: Throw the ball by gripping it with the index finger and middle finger on the ball; point your shoulder opposite from your throwing hand in the direction of your target; step in the direction of your target when you release the ball; and follow through after you release the ball with your back leg so that both legs are parallel upon the completion of the throw.
