Every Elite Pitcher Has a Process.
With a process, you use a series of actions taken in a particular order that, through experience, you expect to send your fastballs into your intended target.
Once mastered, like riding a bike, you go through your delivery without thinking about it.
Muscle Memory Limits Pitching Careers
Without a process, muscle memory becomes your improvement plan of choice, but, have you ever considered that muscle memory doesn’t really exist?
Your muscles don’t have a memory, and your pitching career isn’t long enough for muscle memory to take hold.
If, like Malcolm Gladwell says, it takes roughly 10,000 hours to master a skill, you must work full time (40 hours a week) for 5 years to finetune your muscle memory to the point where you can count on your fastballs to travel directly into your target.
While working on your 10,000 hours, your inability to send your fastballs directly into your target means your competitive pitching career is more likely to come to and end before you finish your 10,000 hours.
