If you are able to locate your off-speed consistently, then this is a great opportunity to throw a changeup, slider, or curveball. By doing so, this will keep the batter off-balance and guessing. 0-1 changeups are excellent because the batter thinks you are throwing a meat fastball, but instead its 6-10 mph slower and sharply breaking downward. The result? The batter will probably swing over the top of the ball or will be way out in front of the pitch. You can have a similar result by throwing a sharp breaking slider or cutter that starts down the middle of the plate, and breaks away toward the outer half.
There is more to choosing a baseball glove than most people might think. Remember to do your research and understand the proper sizing when making your choice. Keep in mind the positions you will be playing. Always make sure to try on as many brands and styles as you can that way you can find what is most comfortable to you. Most of all just have fun and figure out what you prefer. If you have any questions you can go to Baseball Training Aids Plus.
So what can you do instead? Work on stretching and lean muscle development for your upper body. A more elastic and lean muscle means you can whip the bat through the zone much quicker. Also, make sure you include good, solid wrist exercises to strengthen that area. Stronger wrists allow you to turn the bat over quicker, this improving your bat speed.
