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.
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.
