I believe sometimes the hitter doesn't strike out on the third strike.
Sometimes, I believe, it's the 1st or 2nd. The fast-ball they shouldn't have taken.
The hanging breaking ball they shouldn't have missed.
I believe that strike-outs often times happen because:
- The hitter is pulling pitches they shouldn't be pulling.
- The hitter isn't ready to hit. (They're not assuming the next pitch isn't going to be a strike.)
Here's exactly how you solve both.
- Let the ball travel and use the big part of the field. In other words - drive the ball up the middle.
- Assume it's going to be a strike. Not "if" it's a strike but it's going to be my pitch and I'm NOT going to miss it. (THINK: It's a strike until it's not)
Good. Listen to me touch on this a bit more with a bat in my hands.
