The Game in a Nutshell – 

A Game of Numbers (Increase and Decrease Odds)


Hitters fail 7 out of 10 times. Chances are great with the pitcher.

  • Read Fastball
  • Divide Plate
  • QAB – 6+ pitches (Except when runners in scoring position)
  • Move Runners Over/Get on Base, RBIs
  • Important Counts:
  • 0 – 0 – Stick to plan vs. RISP
  • 2 – 0 – Cannot be LATE
  • 3 – 0 – TAKE!
  • Anything and 1 strike - Plan
  • 0 or 1 – 2 – Foul Off and do not take 2 strike

Base Running
