Don’t Let a Hitter Get Too Comfortable!
Keep the hitter guessing. Don’t be afraid to buzz the tower! If you make a hitter a little uncomfortable you are already ahead of the game. I’m not saying you should hit a batter on purpose, but you can get in the kitchen and make her a little shaky!
A good fastball right under the hands or a backdoor curve ball that looks like it’s headed for the rib cage are both great tools for a pitcher to gain control of the inner half of the plate.
If you can’t pitch inside, you are going to get rocked.
Sorry but it’s true.
