Hi all. I wanted to create a blog that would provide a place for all my fellow baseball players to come and find helpful training tips & information. I have been fortunate over the years to be around some great baseball minds and feel led to share what I've learned.
Here's your first baseball tip!
If you're a right-handed pitcher, you've got to find a way to deliver the baseball to the plate in 1.3 seconds or less from the stretch.
That's because a good catcher usually takes roughly 2 seconds to deliver the ball to second base. (Many catchers may even take several tenths of a second longer.)
In order to shut down the running game, a right-hander
cannot take longer than 1.3 seconds to deliver the ball,
as a base is stolen in roughly 4 seconds.
If you want to be more competitive on the mound, try
getting your time to the plate down to 1.3 seconds or less.
Work on it!
