Shaking off location

How many of you are sick and tired of the three hour baseball game?  I know I am.  There are many things that lengthen the game unnecessarily but one thing that irritates me more than others is all the trips to the mound by the catchers to go over pitch selection.  I mean how difficult should it be?  1 is a fastball, 2 is a curve, wiggle is a change-up, etc.  It’s not that hard.

However, one thing that does cause some confusion is when the pitcher wants the pitch called but not the location the catcher selected.  Today’s video tip shows how pitchers and catchers can easily work out that issue.
