What does perfect pitch mean? – Learn Singing Online
How about being a member of the elite 1%? In order to get there, you need to be able to generate pitches to all players on the field (no one gets good at anything without good pitches), plus a fair deal of throwing velocity.
I have been working on this blog post since the beginning of 2014. I have since released two articles on pitching mechanics, and now a third with a comprehensive breakdown of pitching mechanics from every major league and Minor League level.
I have also created a new blog at www.davidmazza.com that explores the science behind pitch command and pitch performance.
So, here is a quick look at the list:
Top Level Pitch Mechanics
These mechanics are found in pitchers’ and hitters’ repertoires at the Major League and Minor League levels, but there are three levels at all levels that are often overlooked by coaches who need only to throw and hit the ball.
The top category is called velocity, or “velocity velocity.” The first level of velocity (a pitch that travels well above the speed of sound through the air and lands on the ground) is the velocity range that allows a pitcher to maintain control of his pitches and throw them with great velocity and consistency. For example, a 95 mph fastball will never pitch in the high 80s if it can’t be spun with great speed. Velocity varies from ball to ball and pitchers often get away with high velocity because they throw it to good hitters who get to the ball fast (or in my case, fast enough that it’s easy to turn them down).
Velocity typically can’t be improved by merely altering the angle of the arm, but can be improved by using the arm as a cutter (or splitter or whatever) and using your arm as a slider.
The second category of throwing mechanics is known as launch angle, or velocity at launch time. This is the average height of a pitch to your hitter, plus the angle of launch, and it is generally the smallest part of the pitching motion relative to how a pitching pitcher is moving.
You don’t often see a pitcher launch at the same degree as they do their fastball to the hitters, but even when the launch angle is similar it is often better than if you throw a fastball with a much higher launch angle, to which I say, “great news.” The more launch angle in your repertoire, the more you can use that changeup/splitter/whatever to throw to all different types of hitters
