    Default Good Day!

    Team went 5-0. DD 92% strikes and only gave up one hit. 4-5 at the the plate. Two triples and two doubles and crushed. Working to get better.

    I would try to get your DD's strike percentage down to @ 70%. I am a big fan of getting ahead of batters and staying ahead, but you do not want to be throwing too many strikes or a good team will LIGHT YOU UP!

    Sorry, First pitch strike percentage was .92 and .707 total strikes and 13.6 pitches per inning. Change up wasn't great.

    All it REALLY has to do is keep the timing off balance! Throwing a change for a strike is a bonus.... Congrats to her for one helluva day!

    MS ball, not the best competition but DD pitched 4 and 1/3 innings this week. 11 strike outs and no hits. Only one walk. Still 11 years old.
