In this clip, we’re going to go over the strike
zone. The first thing you got to do, get behind the plate, call a play in, play ball. Now
it’s your job get in position right straight over the catcher’s head. So you can see both
sides of the plate without moving. You got a nice peripheral vision of home plate there.
Now, stay in position you make your call. In Little League, it’s right below the letters
right there. That’s a good call and then down to the knees. Now in Little League, some guys
they throw the ball on an arc. So its a little more difficult to call a strike when you have
an arc because its where it crosses the plate, not where it ends up in the mitt. Where it
crosses the plate. Now, this is called a paint. You can throw over the corners, that’s the
paint. That’s a good pitch if you throw over the paint. A good pitcher always hits the
paint every pitch, paint, paint, paint. So, throw them hard, throw them fast, throw them
straight. Over the plate get a strike, got them out.
