Having A Plan
Recently we talked about attacking the Strike Zone early. Throwing First Pitch Strikes is key component for success. Here is a plan that can help pitchers walk less hitters, give up less runs and win more games! When playing for the Yankees we got off to a horrid start as a staff. After the 1st month we were given a plan to attack the middle of the plate in every EVEN Count. 0-0, 1-1, 2-2. This allowed us to start working ahead in the count rather than falling behind. Our catchers were on the same page. They knew to sit right down the middle in those counts. Always use 1 of your best 2 pitches in even counts and attack the strike zone. Pitch to Contact and have fun!
