This drill improves pitchers’ accuracy when pitching under conditions in which stamina is being challenged.
Each pitcher works with a catcher. For 30 to 45 seconds, pitchers continuously delivers pitches without any breaks, a speed drill.
The pitcher then takes two shallow breaths followed by one deep breath, releasing tension in the shoulders during each exhalation.
Then the catcher calls a sequence of five specific pitches varied by type and location.
If the pitcher accurately throws the five pitches (judged by the catcher), she has successfully completed the drill.
If not, repeat the entire drill using five different specified pitches.
Repeat until the pitcher has performed this drill 3 to 5 times.
