Quote of the day

I’m a huge advocate of pitching. You have to have good pitching as the solid core, the foundation. It keeps you in every game.

  1. Agree. Why then, in youth baseball, does it seem like they never focus on pitching??? Pitching. Pitching. Pitching. That’s what I always say. Of course, my son – he’s a catcher. 🙂

    • Hm… I think it probably depends on the team. As a kid, I remember seeing coaches who DID work a lot with pitchers. And also coaches who just plucked the kid with the best arm and plopped him on the mound. Sometimes I wonder if they just don’t know HOW to coach young pitchers — a lot of these coaches are volunteers, after all.
