How to throw more strikes with your breaking pitches

A big problem with pitchers as they get into the higher levels is an inability to throw strikes with their breaking pitches.  From Little League through even the high school level, pitchers can get away with not being very good at commanding their curveballs and sliders.  This is because the hitters are usually not that good.

That changes when you get to the college and pro levels.  At those levels, a hitter will never worry about a breaking pitch unless the pitcher can throw it for a strike.

Today’s video post is a basic tip for pitchers who are old enough to throw breaking pitches and who want to do a better job of having them end up in the strike zone.  To see Part 2 of this video which covers how to throw an 0-2 or 1-2 breaking pitch, click HERE.
