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.
Instead, at the peak of your leg lift, your weight should have already shifted, your drive knee should be inside your drive hip, and your lead hip should already be driving towards home. The early you shift your weight, the easy your trasition will be into the stride. The stride is the second most important element of the pitching mechanics. Stride speed and length are both vitally important to velocity. The only way to increase both aspects is through an effective back leg drive. In order to achieve proper back leg drive, you must avoid over collapsing the drive knee past the drive foot. The “drop and drive” isn’t inherently flawed, but you must collapse too drastically. You should be pushing towards, not dropping your weight over the rubber.
