Are you left-handed or right handed and is this only to right handed batters, left handed batters or both.

If your left handed and having a hard time throwing inside to rightys i could be because your opening up too soon and flying open. this could be caused by a number of things such as not hitting ur balance point and or over striding.

Do you miss outside to both RH and LH batters?

Can you throw inside when there isn’t a batter in the box?

If so, you could be looking at the batter too much. You need to focus on the glove and ignore the batter.

When pitching inside it’s not just about coming inside with the fastball/slider/cutter whatever. It’s about how you set it up. It all comes down to how well you change change speeds. Me, being a lefty with a slide and curve, I can set up my inside fastball with an away curve. Even only topping out in the high 80’s, it’s set up well because my curve is a big slow breaker. As the game rolls on and they figure out that I am using my curve to set up my fastball I am able to use my slider similar to the way Randy Johnson does down and in. So there is many ways to bust hitters in, but IMO setting up and changing speeds is the way to go.
