A survey of 120+ College Coaches and some Travel Ball, High School and Private Pitching Instructors asked participants to rate the most important pitching-related factors.
When asked to rank these factors in the order of importance, this is their response.
Command – 81%
Movement – 18%
Velocity – 1%
This survey contradicts the myth that velocity is what Coaches want to see. Coaches are looking for Pitchers who can locate their pitches within the strike zone over Pitchers with lights-out velocity.
Lower Body Engagement Drives Command.
Getting a Pitcher’s lower body to drive his results isn’t a conscious action. Lower body engagement is something a Pitching Coach adds to a Pitcher’s current stockpile of skills.
Once added, a Pitcher produces the command that’ll tease influential baseball people to sit up and take notice.
