Angry Pitching


#1

Hey all, so I throw hard already, but when I’m pissed off I throw much harder. Why


#2

Adrenaline, most likely. You’re more focused, most likely.

I don’t think it’s a problem, if that’s what you’re wondering. I pitched angry constantly – my teammates avoided me on game day. I mother-fuc*ed opposing hitters under my breath (and often audibly) every single pitch. I was a psycho :slight_smile: It worked for me, though.

I was a closing pitcher in the Chicago Cubs organization, so this mentality worked well. Was one of the reasons I got the role. But even as a starting pitcher in college, I approached each inning like a closer approaches the 9th inning of a game – I pitched pissed off at the world with a chip on my shoulder. Loved it.

Actually the adrenaline of the game will probably help
out a little bit to regain command and concentration about the things that I have to do.
