Thoughts on the need / requirement on having a home plate / target of some kind for a pitching session ? Does it matter the type of practice ? Say team practice just getting work / reps in vs private session or a session that’s working a specific item whether it’s locating a pitch vs working on change up fastball etc. Was taught by dad didn’t matter 5’ or 50’ warm up toss. Warming up as an infielder outfielder pitcher ANYTIME you throw a ball you should always throw to a target. When it came to pitching the plate is a constant. Catchers are not. Some bigger some small some move around some don’t some squat with knees more together others knees are spread wide open. So he always believed in having that constant plate/ target. In my couple of years of my daughter pitching surprised at both team practices and even private lessons where it’s just walk off the distance and that’s it. I also find when people do this catchers set up almost on top of where the plate would be vs where they normally would set up which imo is not a good thing.
