Hi this is my first post so Id just like to say hi to everyone!
My name is Pete and Im 23 yrs old. I live in Belfast, Northern Ireland and Im a huge fan of America’s best sport (really the other ones dont make much sense to me!)
Ive been invited down for a game with the local baseball team - and it will be my first ever time playing baseball!
I love the pitching aspect of the game - really I feel that that is what baseball is all about. I love the technical pitchers that move the ball and bamboozle the hitters. Im 23, 6foot 1, and around 160 pounds so Im pretty thin and cant see myself ever being a power pitcher - so technical throwing really interests me.
Anyway this will be my first game and I would guess that theyll give me a chance at pitching - so what advice can you give me? Ive checked out Steven’s excellent breakdowns of the types of pitches - Im thinking that Ill practice 2 of those and amybe give them a go?
Really I am sorta nervous but so looking forward to it so can anyone give me some basics?
