I want to talk to someone via chat about how to throw a four-seamer. If not chat, I guess we could try here, but I’m trying to work on a poem and I don’t really like showing work-in-progress to the general public, if you know what I mean.
I’m a complete ignoramus when it comes to the technical side of pitching but I have written about other positions in my poetry and would like to write about pitching, too. But there is so much that I don’t know where to start and figure this would be where I could start.
If you don’t think I’m serious, check out my blog. I really do write about baseball and I really haven’t written anything technical about pitching.
Amongst the things I want to do is write a set of “tanka” (which is a Japanese form of poetry similar to a haiku but longer) about each type of pitch and put them together as a whole collage-type poem.
So, will any of you help me? I’ll give you credit.
