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.
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.
How much is my budget? Baseball gloves come in a wide range of prices. Many can be found for under a $100 but high end brands can be over $200. If you are looking for quality and something that lasts longer then you will have to pay the price. If you plan on playing for years, then spending the extra money might suit you better. Cheaper doesn’t mean you will save money in the long run. On the other hand players that are still growing may find it better to go with something cheaper.
