Coach Gil Patterson goes over some of the criteria he believes allows for pitchers to get swing and misses in this video tip.

Throwing 95 mph is not in the cards for everyone, but the ability to fine tune your mechanics and get maximum movement out of your pitches is very achievable if you are focusing on the right things.
