Coach John Cumberland discusses Pitchers tempo in this tip which is more important than you may think. The amount of time a pitcher takes in between pitches can effect a lot in a baseball game, it can cause the fielders behind him to start playing on their heels which leads to errors. A good rule of thumb is to never leave the dirt of the mound when receiving a throw from the catcher, as soon as you get the ball it is time to get back on the mound and fire in the next pitch. Having good tempo doesn't require extraordinary athletic ability, don't let it be the reason you have trouble in your next outing!
