Strike Out Inc. Pitching Tips

Getting Ahead Early in the Count

It seems like such a basic idea, but getting ahead early in the count is a very important think when you are a pitcher. You are essentially setting the tone for an entire at bat when you get that first (and second) strike against a batter. Getting ahead early in the count allows you to throw the pitch that you want to throw and not the "batters pitch."  Batters who are swinging the bat more defensively will be more anxious most of the time and that will allow you to find their weakness more easily. Since hitting is soo mental you are essentially taking them out of their comfort zone and getting "in their head" when you get ahead early in the count!!
