PITCH COUNT CHART

 

THE FOLLOWING PITCH COUNT CHART IS A GUIDE OF WHAT PITCH TO LOOK FOR DURING CERTAIN PITCH COUNTS. REMEMBER THAT PITCHERS WILL ALWAYS TRY TO GET AHEAD OF YOU AT THE BEGINNING. THEN TRY TO GET YOU OUT WITH HIS BEST PITCH WHEN HE IS AHEAD IN THE COUNT. IF THE PITCHER HAS YOU 2 STRIKES AND NO BALLS OR 2 STRIKES AND 1 BALL, HE JUST MAY THROW ONE OUT OF THE STRIKE ZONE TO GET YOU TO FISH FOR IT. SO PROTECT YOURSELF AND PUT UP A GOOD BATTLE. WHEN YOU ARE AHEAD IN THE COUNT, BE AGGRESSIVE, WHEN YOU'RE BEHIND, PROTECT.

 

REMEMBER: THIS CHART IS JUST A GUIDE AND NOT A RULE.

                       DEAD RED = LOOKING FOR A GOOD PITCH TO DRIVE AND HIT HARD.

                      PROTECT & BATTLE = YOU ARE BEHIND IN THE COUNT AND  PROTECTING                                                                     YOUSELF FROM ANY PITCH CLOSE TO THE PLATE,                                                                     SO BATTLE  UP THERE.

                       TAKE = DO NOT SWING AT THE PITCH UNLESS GIVEN ASIGN TO DO SO.
