Little League Pitching Goals
By Steven Ellis, former Chicago Cubs pitching pro
As a pitcher you should work on at least one of these baseball pitching goals every time you throw a baseball or practice your pitching.
You cannot throw strikes consistently if you do not have sound mechanics. You also risk arm injury if you throw with bad mechanics.
To be a successful pitcher you have to be able to locate the ball. Inside/outside, up and down.
You don't throw every pitch the same speed. You put a little more on, you take a little off. It keeps the batter off stride. There is an old adage about hitting that says: Hitting is all about timing. Pitching is all about disrupting the hitters timing. You disrupt a hitters timing by changing speeds.
Field your position
You can win yourself a lot of ball games if you can field your position.
