It's a difficult angle to see much detail. For the most part, the mechanics look good to me. However though, in your wind up you get in a good position on the back side, but it doesn't look like you're getting the "separation" you should (the angular difference between the alignment of your hips and the alignment of your shoulders) when you take your stride forward. And from the camera angle, this looks to be because the way you're using your left leg when you bring it down into an almost...

Perfect Game PGBA nonsense in Texas

Game Day Pitching Routine

FrankJP ·
Hello, My son(2020), age 14 this past March, is playing 14u this season and this is his first year where he will be a starting pitcher. He started playing baseball at age 10 through local in-house leagues, joined a "travel" team at age 13, that was a slight step above. He has pitched some over the years, but never more than an inning here or there, sometimes two, nothing consistent. I'd say he has likely not pitched more than 20 innings in one season, and that was age 12 I believe. He has a...

Perfect Game value

Hi folks -- Please pardon my "newbiness," but I'm just wondering if the Perfect Game showcases offer legitimate value to aspiring college players (from a recruiting perspective).

Pulling the trigger

At times I feel I have entered the world of the surreal with the sport of baseball. I was watching a scrimmage last week and my son was batting lead off. Pitch one, great pitchers pitch touched the black on the outside, would not have wanted him to swing so we are good. Pitch two was just below the belt, three inches outside middle...he watched strike two. Last year that would have been a double to the gap in right center. After the game he brought it up immediately saying..."I have no idea...

Perfect Game event questions

CoachGato ·
My son, class of 2018, is a catcher who will be attending a Perfect Game event in Colorado in May. Living in Colorado, we decided this was a great opportunity for him. Now I am hearing he should only go to Perfect Game events in the areas in which he wants to go to college. Should he be requesting invitations to other regional events, to include the National Academic in June? Will going to one event be enough, given he scores out well? Background on him, if it's even relevant: varsity...

Re: Pulling the trigger

MDBallDad ·
Just my opinion, but I think pulling the trigger and approach go hand and hand. Approach tracks both the situation and the hitter's strengths. Depending on the situation, hitter can isolate his zone, look for his pitch to hit, and swing when he gets it. Until he has two strikes on him. After two strikes, he has to expand the zone, but within reason, to give him the best chance of getting on base and not K looking. Again, I'm just a dad and never coached above the 12U level, but that's what...

Re: Pulling the trigger

Curious, does he usually bat leadoff? There are a few spots in the lineup that typically require a different approach/mindset and, of course, leadoff is the most prominent. Aside from that, yes, it certainly happens where a hitter is just frozen in a situation where he usually pulls the trigger. Hitters work on a thousand different things, mechanically and mentally, and then are asked to narrow that to just one thought when they step in the box in a game. On top of that, the situation...

^^^^^^^^^This. Concur 100% with cabbagedad. Watched son do similarly on 1,2,3 strikes early last year. It was with out a doubt the highest velo he had seen to that point, but I swear I don't think he moved except to track the pitch. He felt weird, stupid, confused afterward and I hope to never see it again, but probably will.

I never like to speak poorly of the boys in blue but it appeared sitting directly behind home plate that wind shear must have caused the ball to be in the middle of the 1st base batters box and then somehow return to the strike zone in time for the call...struck out looking. I can live with that, it happens and I would have been concerned if he had swung at that one, expanding the zone 3" off the plate with 2 strikes to protect is good, chasing a pitch out there is just not a good idea.

Cabbage, Yes he has been a three year leadoff in HS, in club he is leadoff, or 3 depending on the make-up of the squad. I appreciate the insight, that is what I believe too and that was the reassurance I provided, just wanted to make sure I covered the proverbial bases. Thanks!

My son has been in this situation before. In fact he's a leadoff hitter and he's scuffling right now. Like Tres_A, I'm just a dad, but my thought has always been "do what you need to do to reach the same level of comfort you had with your swing and your approach when you were at your best." In other words, "get your bucket and your tee and get in the cage."

Re: Pulling the trigger

MDBallDad ·
My general observation, and my 2017 son likes to tell me this: it's harder than it looks in the stands. Or something to that effect. We've all seen our son's chase a first-pitch CB (or one drops in), lay-off a fat second pitch FB, and get in a deep hole and chase (or worse...look at strike 3). All part of the game. Pros do the same thing from time-to-time. I suppose the key is whether this is anomaly, a trend, or a consistent approach/result. If the latter, he won't be lead-off for long.

Re: Pulling the trigger

It's more than likely an anomaly. I've seen it happen to my son, usually once a year. Maybe twice through all 3 seasons. It happens. Just advise him to laugh it off and get back on the horse.

Re: Pulling the trigger

A MLB scout once told us that you have to have what he called a yes-yes-yes - no approach rather than a no-no-no-yes approach. As I understood him, he meant that on each pitch you are looking to do damage as a default, holding up only when the pitch reveals itself as NOT hammerable. A no-no-no-yes approach would I guess be the opposite, it's like "show me that you are hittable, pitch. But until you show me, I'm laying off." (although with a pitcher that cant find the strike zone....) He says...

Hitters have to go to the plate with a plan and execute it. Yes, hitters can get fooled on a pitch and get punched out. But this sounds like an unprepared at bat.
