Our pitching so far


#1

2 games 15 innings let up 3 runs. Game today 8 innings 12 strikeouts 2 walks. Just wondering about these stats and not sure how they rate. First pitch strikes 60%. overall 65%strikes 35% balls. What should a goal be for a high school team for ball to strike ratio and first pitch strike?

Are these your numbers or your entire team’s numbers?

The overall ball to strike ratio is excellent at 65%. And 60% FPS is good, too - anything above 60% is the goal, but I tend to want to see it equal to or better than your overall strike %. So I’d like to see it be 65%. Basically, what these numbers tell me is that your pitchers are able to throw 65% strikes, so they should also be able to do that on first pitches, too. The physical capabilities are there - now, they just need to focus and execute!
