I HAVE BEEN CHARTING PITCHES THIS SEASON OF A NUMBER OF M.L. BALL GAMES ON SWINGS. I HAVE SPLIT MY CHART ON SWINGS OF GOOD PITCHES,HIT GOOD AND HIT BAD.2ND SWINGS OF BAD PITCHES HIT GOOD AND HIT BAD.MY FINDINGS HAVE BEEN ABOUT HALF THE SWINGS ARE USUALLY AT BAD PITCHES,AND1OUT OF THIRTY ARE HIT GOOD.THE OTHER HALF OF THE SWINGS ARE AT GOOD PITCHESAND50% TO60% OF THEM ARE HIT GOOD.25%OF THE SWINGS ARE AT GOOD PITCHES AND HIT BAD,HALF OF THESE BAD SWINGS AT GOOD PITCHES ARE FROM BEING FOOLED AT OFF SPEED PITCHES.TOTAL 75% OF ALL SWINGS ARE NOT HIT WELL.IT SEEMS TO ME IF WE CAN COME UP WITH A SYSTEM TO TRAIN HITTERS MORE DISCIPLINE TO GET A GOOD PITCH AS BOGGS ,GWYNN.AND THE BATSPEED OF A LONGER ROTATION TYPE SWING AS SOSA GRIFEY,WE MAY SEE ANOTHER HITTER LIKE WILLIAMS AGAIN WHO DID GREAT THINGS FOR AN ENTIRE CAREER NOT JUST AGUY HEAR OR THERE TODAY WHO THROWS IN A GREAT YEAR ONCE IN A WHILE.MANY ARE BEGINNING TO USE THE BIG SWING AND GENERATING MORE POWER IT IS OBVIOUS BUT IT SEEMS THEY HAVE TO COMMITT EARLIER TO GET ALL THE WAY AROUND AND ARE GETTING FOOLED WITH BAD PITCHES MORE OFTEN.IF WE DISCUSSED OR HAD A SIGHT THAT DEVOTED ITS TIME TO VISION MECHANICS AND PITCH RECOGNITION EARLIER OUT OF THE HAND AS MUCH AS THESE SIGHTS DO TO MECHANICS WE WOULD THEN BE ON TO THE NEXT GENERATION OF HITTERS.
RQL do you know how to train hitters to recognize different pitches. If so I could use some help. Do you know anyone who can teach pitch recognititon?
