Professional pitchers are known for throwing around 70 to 75 percent first-pitch strikes in game. Every pitcher should try to reach this level of efficiency because it will make it easier to control at-bats. Now that you have successfully entered the 0-1 count, you will have a little leeway on what types of pitches to throw, and where you would like to locate them. The number one strategy in this pitch count is to get another strike on the batter. However, this doesn’t mean that you throw a meaty fastball down the middle of the plate.
Instead, really focus on swing consistency and repetition to help increase the speed you bring it through the zone. Even a slight increase in overall speed (think just 2 to 5 miles per hour increase) can give you up to 40 feet extra distance, and a ton more velocity when you square one up.
