Pitching Lessons from the 2010 World series

Posted: 10/30/2010 in Uncategorized


Controlling the running game and knowing what pitches to throw with runners in scoring position are key principles to being a winning pitcher. The clip above shows Tim Lincecum executing these principles with precision in game 1 of the 2010 World Series. For young pitchers to step up to the next level, whether it’s high school, or college, these two areas of pitching must be working well. These principles can be simulated in bull pen sessions to help gain confidence. Once a pitcher understands the principles he then has to build the routine needed for game time execution. The place to do that is bull pen, with your pitching coach or trainer.
