Since i usually hav no one to pitch to outside of practice, i made a strike zone like in the batting cages. I don’t know why, but i seem to have control problems when i pitch to it; i have like 30% control. But when i pitch to the catchers mit, i hav the best control in the rotation. Is this a problem? Can i fix it? Why does this happen?
There’s nothing like a real live catcher with a real live catcher’s mitt to throw to, and I can understand your frustration when you can’t find one. However, since you don’t have someone to throw to outside of practice, you might consider—it would be well worth it—purchasing a professional type of target with a good strike zone to work with. Line Drive is one such firm that has these targets available, so you might give them a call and see what they have. 8)
