by Jase Wrigley

Coach Jase Wrigley discusses the ways to get movement on your pitches in this segment. The 2 seam fastball and the cut fastball are two pitch that we can throw that have both velocity and movement if thrown properly. Sometime all you need is a 4-5 inch break, that maybe only the catcher and hitter really see, to miss the barrel of the bat and get either poor contact or a swing and miss. Remember, we dont have to strike everyone out, sometimes poor contact is better than a swing and miss, you still get the out and save your arm a few pitches.
