    baseball, the pitcher is one of the most vital players on the team. He must follow a precise sequence of steps to throw the pitch the way he had intended to. The best way for a pitcher to throw hard and throw strikes is to choose the proper stance and pitch, execute the pitch, and follow through into an athletic fielding position. Before the pitcher steps on the mound, he must first decide what type of stance he needs to be in. If there is a runner on base, he will be in the stretch so he will be able to keep the runners from stealing bases. However, if there are no runners on base, he will be in the wind-up.

    It was the second game of the night. We had won the first game. They had a slow pitcher who was easy to get runs off which is basically why we won. But this was a new game. We were facing the Dallas Raiders which were very good. We started the game batting because we were the away team. The Raiders defence took the field. Their pitcher picked up the ball and started to warm up on the mound. After he threw the first pitch, my stomach dropped. He was throwing fast. My coach being the way he is,…

    As of today, he holds a 4.34 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 9 – 6 record. I think Price will come out of his first half slump and become that dominate pitcher we saw in Detroit, Tampa Bay, and Toronto. He is on a team that doesn’t lack run support, so it’s going to be up to him to get his ERA down and go on a run of wins to help his team secure a postseason position. I think the Red Sox will finish top in their division and get over the hump that is the Baltimore Orioles because of players like David Price…

    Have you ever pitched in baseball? If you have you know it would be beneficial if you could put something on your fingers to get a better grip on the ball, however the MLB doesn't think so they have been against gripping substances since they banned the spitball in 1920.Gripping substances should be available for MLB pitchers because the majority of batters are receptive to the idea, less batters might get hit by a pitch, and since the majority of pitchers use a substance it is difficult to…

    In a game of failure, it’s only expected that failure would be around each corner. Every pitcher has a bad start, from Clayton Kershaw to a pitcher trying to make a level three team, I have found myself in this exact situation several times. At Lakewood High School around midsummer I was scheduled to pitch against one of the best teams we would see all season. This was Team Colorado. Not only was each pitch laboured but my arm was sore and my legs were weak. From the time I began my warm-up in…
