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.
Within the 0-2 count, a pitcher can throw any pitch that he thinks will either produce an easy out or a strikeout. The best 0-2 pitches you can throw are ones that appear to be a strike, but are only inches away from the strike zone. This is because umpires will typically give pitchers a strike in 0-2 count if it’s close to the plate, and it should be just far enough to where the batter will have a difficult time making contact. The best strikeout pitches are a high fastball out the zone, a sharp breaking slider away, and a curveball in the dirt because batters are known for chasing this pitch. Follow these baseball pitching strategies, and you are guaranteed to dominate batters at all levels of competition.
Let me explain. Scoring baseball games means keeping an account, on a score sheet, of what happens in the game. Some people just keep track of outs, hits and scores. That’s fine and a good place to start, but my breakthrough to understanding was the result of tracking every pitch. I liked to say that I could reconstruct an entire game with my scorebook. That’s a helpful tool because you do not know what play will end up being particularly important. An outfielder’s assist in the third inning might prove to be a pivotal point. You’ll see that more clearly when you’re able to review the entire game after the fact.
