Coach Chuck Hernandez shares his theory on throwing strikes as a pitcher and why it is sometimes not totally understood by young players in this segment. Throwing strikes is a physical thing as well as a mental thing, good mechanics mixed with a will to put the ball in the zone make for the best strike throwers in the game. It is often misunderstood by young pitchers when they think about throwing strikes as they need to make the hitter miss the strike. A good pitcher throws strikes wanting contact, which allows him to go later in the game making him more valuable to his team.
