Coach Gil Patterson discusses the different ways to control the running game with a runner on first base in this segment. Picking off is not the only way you can control the running game as a pitcher, sometimes just holding the ball can screw up the runners timing. At the end of the day, the runner is trying to time you up or pattern you so he can easily steal, mix up your times to the plate and throw over every once in a while and you will see results almost immediately.
