EVOLUTION OF FASTPITCH LEAGUES

HIGH SCHOOL & YOUTH LEAGUES

PHASE I.  WEAK PITCHING, WALKING AND STEALING

PHASE II.  HITTERS TAKE OVER BECAUSE PITCHERS THROW ONLY FASTBALLS FOR STRIKES

PHASE III.  PITCHERS DOMINATE BECAUSE OF WORKING ALL YEAR. MANY STRIKEOUTS DUE TOO THROWING PITCHES AND STRATEGY.

PHASE IV.  BATTERS START WORKING HARDER, COACHES START BECOMING MORE INVOLVED IN PITCHING, HITTING, AND STRATEGY OF THE GAME.

PHASE V.  GOOD BALANCE BETWEEN PITCHING AND HITTING.

RESULT - BETTER PITCHING RESULTS IN THE ELEVATION OF THE

WHOLE LEAGUE AND EVERY ASPECT OF THE GAME. THIS

RESULTS IN THE ATHLETES BECOMING THE BEST THEY

CAN BE AND COMPETING FOR COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS!
