Avoid at all costs focusing on upper body strength. How many times have you seen or heard someone talk about using just pure strength to drive a ball out of the yard? Want to know the truth? Upper body strength actually has very little to do with pure power. Sure, it might help a little, but the real secret is how fast or quick your swing speed is. Upper body muscle mass actually will slow down your bat speed because of the bulk.
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.
