I think the big thing with having any consistency throwing the ball is having purpose with every throw you make. If that’s at 45 feet or 300, flat ground work, mound work, etc. Being deliberate with every rep is the key to improvement.
Command is a tricky subject for me. I don’t want to take away from velocity. But the ability to throw the ball in the area you want is needed. I’m not about being picky and throwing around hitters. But, being able to throw to areas for weak swings/contact is important.
Throwing as hard as you can, attacking hitters and having conviction with every pitch is great. But there has to be a certain knowing of where each pitch is going and a certain amount of execution with those pitches. Throwing the ball up, down, in, out when you want without taking away from velocity is the overall goal.
How do you build command without reducing velocity?
