I posted here a while looking for a new pitch to throw because i had just started pitching
basically the story is our first game of the season we went down a quick 8-0 in the first inning. I’d never pitched before at the time, my coach calls me in from centerfield and says “You know how to pitch? right?”, i say “i can figure it out.”
I end up throwing 5 shutout innings with 6 Ks and 14 first pitch strikes throwing strictly a maybe 70 MPH fastball at best
I figured my coach would pitch me more, but due to our lack in outfield depth, i havn’t.
Yesterday before our game, coach asked if i was availiable tp pitch, now we were playing the best team in the area, so i knew he wouldn’t put me in, but i know now that he plans to next monday. So i have the spring break to learn some new pitches.
Everyone told me to throw a changeup in my last topic, but i’ve never been able to control it. I just can’t. I’ve learned to throw a decent slider but i can only throw it well and on target maybe 50% percent of the time…
So i need to know a good pitch or 2 to add to my fastball. I would like to hold onto that slider and develop it but i’ve never really learned how to throw it. So if anyone knows a good slider grip that would be perfect.
Basically i just need some good advice on some new pitches to throw. I’m 15 and throw at the freshman high school level(but i do get some time att JV and Varsity). Thanks
