We all hate it when a coach or parents yells, "Just throw strikes."
But, what should a coach say to a struggling pitcher in attempt to help her "just throw strikes"?
Personally, I rarely said anything. If a kid was struggling, I took her out. I wouldn't even leave the dugout. My idea was not to make a big deal out of it, as in, "Too bad, too bad. You'll do better next game." Kids always got another chance to pitch. But, that is me...I'm not sure that would work with every coach.
