First pitch K %


#1

What do you guys aim for?


#2

This summer I’m aiming for 100%, but Hopeing to be 75%+ at the end of the year.


#3

I’m aiming for about 90%. Last year, my dad recorded during a few games what happened when I threw 1st pitch strikes vs. when I didn’t, and the contrast was huge. When I did throw 1st pitch strikes, I got about 90% of the hitters, out but when I didn’t, I only got out about 60%.


#4

my coach preaches 100%

and i believe getting ahead in the count really helps the odds of getting the batter out. i have heard something like the average drops about 100 points after getting first pitch strike.

id like to see the official stat


#5

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: The best pitch in baseball is STRIKE ONE. You get that, you’re ahead of the batter, and you’re ahead of the game.


#6

I want a first pitch strike to every batter.
