Baseball Pitching – Pitching Inside With Confidence

Growing up I was instructed by some of the best pitching coaches in the world. I was always told to “pitch in to win.” I think we have all heard it before, but most coaches never teach this important technique. The fact is, great pitcher’s find success throwing on the inside part of the plate. I think throwing inside gives the pitcher more of an advantage simply because of the psychological game we play with hitters. We show them we are not afraid to come inside to set ourselves up for our strikeout pitch.

Getting the Most Out of Your Fastball

There is not a pitcher out there who doesn’t want to add some velocity to his fastball. Even Major League pitchers who have been known to hit 3 digits on the radar gun wish they could throw a couple of miles an hour faster. There is no doubt that pitchers are throwing faster as time goes on. What is contributing to this? More pitchers have the ability to throw in the high nineties now and one pitcher who just got drafted from Fresno state has been clocked at over 100 several times. I think his changeup goes faster than some Major League fastballs.
