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.
If you have successfully thrown a strike or got the batter to commit to swinging, then you will have entered the best count for a pitcher. The 0-2 count every pitchers favorite count because they can practically toy with the opposing batter. Keep in mind, the batter also has some strategies for this particular pitch count. Typically, batters will crowd the plate and will choke up on the bat because they are either trying to get hit by the pitch or just trying to make some form of contact. However, this also works to your advantage because the hitter will also be more aggressive in this situation.
