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.
Here’s my secret to learning to love baseball: The greatest help from scoring baseball is the fact it forces the scorekeeper to actually watch every pitch. In fact, you’ll learn to keep an eye on what happens between the pitches. Defensive players are shifted one way or another for different batters. The catcher shifts position at the last second to avoid tipping off the batter. Middle infielders signal each other about who will take the throw should a runner try to steal second. The pitcher checks with them to see who is covering the base should he field a grounder with a runner on first.
