Former Big League Manager Jim Riggleman discusses one of the most common hard decisions a head coach or manager has to make, the pitching change. Coach Riggleman uses the theory of 3's when deciding when to take his starter out of the game, which was passed down to him by a good baseball man. Remember we want our pitcher to compete and want to be in the game, so don't get mad when he gives a little resistance when you ask for the baseball.
