Staying low in the strike zone allows a pitcher to confidently challenge any hitter at any time. Former Cy Young award winner Roy Halladay explains how finishing the pitching motion with your chest out in front and over their landing foot toes will ensure your release point is low and your pitches stay low in the strike zone. The ability to keep the ball low in the zone will get you more ground ball outs and swing and misses, giving your team a better chance at winning the game.

Roy Halladay

Harry Leroy "Roy" Halladay, nicknamed "Doc", is a former professional baseball player who pitched in Major League Baseball for the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies between 1998 and 2013. His nickname, coined by Toronto Blue Jays announcer Tom Cheek, is a reference to Wild West gunslinger "Doc" Holliday. He was the Blue Jays' first draft selection in the 1995 Major League Baseball Draft, the 17th pick overall, and played for the team from 1998 through 2009, after which he was traded to Philadelphia. Halladay is known for his ability to pitch deep into games effectively and, at the time of his retirement, was the current active major league leader in complete games with 67, including 20 shutouts. On May 29, 2010, Halladay pitched the 20th perfect game in MLB history, beating the Florida Marlins by a score of 1–0. On October 6, 2010, in his first post-season start, Halladay threw the second no-hitter in MLB postseason history (Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series being the first) against the Cincinnati Reds in Game 1 of the 2010 NLDS. It was his second no-hitter of the year (following the May 29 perfect game), making Halladay the fifth pitcher in major league history (and the first since Nolan Ryan in 1973) to throw multiple no-hitters in the same season. During the 2012 season, he became the 67th pitcher to record 2,000 strikeouts. Halladay is also one of only five pitchers in MLB history to win the Cy Young Award in both the American and National Leagues.
