I need help desperately.
I'm 18 and I play here in Australia, in our league we play only 20 odd games with a 5 week break 2/3 of the way through the season.
Here are my stats for the first 2/3 of the season.
But since the break, the last 4 games ive pitched in ive given up 6 or more runs per game. And in all 4 games I've been pulled off the mound after a maximum of 2 innings.
I just don't understand why it could be such a sudden decrease. Maybe I just lost confidence after being hit hard the first time and being pulled from the game early.
Maybe the batters are seeing the pitches better. Maybe I just dont have what it takes. I really dont know.
I feel fine when Im on the mound, Im not uncomfortable or anything, I feel like Im going through the same motions I went through before.
I admit that the field behind me hasnt been that great and they have missed a fair few routine plays, I am not a strike out pitcher, they know that.
I just dont understand why I cant beat batters anymore. I still hit my spots and stuff. I dont have a tonne of velocity but thats what has been my success in the past. Less speed more accuracy.
Heres my hitting stats just for the sake of it.
