Man i felt great! Didnt even know that I will pitch till 20 minutes before the game. I pitched 4 inings, noone had a hit vs me, I made 12 strike outs, walked 2, and one batter got hit by my pitch.
Its not that I was good, its just that they are just really bad, they are worst team in the leag by far (new team)!
Its funny how I was repeating in my head “throw a strike” so my pitching mechanics didnt look the same as when I practised. I used my hips to maximum, but then insted of rotating my shoulders I used my arm more (I tought I would get more control that way).
I threw only fastballs and few sinkers (that didnt sink much), I was hitting my spots (low outside, up and in).
I got a question, when I stride I go up then down and around towards the target (I looks something like Daisuke Matsuzaka), will I get anything if I go up, down, then straight forward towards the plate?
Since I throw only fastball, what should be my second pitch? Keep in mind that I have small hands (short fingers), I am small guy 5’9’’ (or 5’10’) 160lbs,and I am 24 years old. Could I throw knuckcurve with my short fingers?
Sorry for my hard-to-understand english!
