4 seam, 2 seam

i was worried about hitting the batter like i said in a previous thread and was always gettin balls outside on hitters

then i switched to my 2 seam and got 2 called strikeouts low and inside

  1. Different pitch comes off your hand different
  2. Mental

kid kid, you’re thinking to much. focus on the mitt and only the mitt.


#4

Because your arm action was the same, but you got the 4-6 inches of movement back into the zone that a 4 Seamer doesn’t have. So if you throw a 4 Seamer that hits the outside corner, then throw a 2 Seamer with the same mechanics, your aiming for the same place, but the 2 Seam movement tails and sinks a little to get your called strike. Continue to use both these pitches, because high 4 Seamers and sinking 2 Seamers can be an effective combo.
