This book is a comprehensive drill book intended to help beginner and advanced pitchers, coaches, and parents. The content moves through the proper pitching progression from learning the basic mechanics to developing the movement pitches. A look at pitching from a former professional catcher's perspective provides insight into the pitcher/catcher "battery." The importance of the pitcher's mental preparation to manage the game is discussed.Practicing needs to be fun or the pitcher will soon get bored. This book also introduces fun activities, some that don't even need a softball, which focus on specific areas of the pitch. Have fun!
