So I have not pitched for about 8 months (moving/working/high school being over, etc...) and recently I was visiting my family for spring break in california. My cousin suggested we hit the field because we used to throw the ball around and do all the baseball stuff when we lived close by. I usually play 2nd/OF but I generally tend to pitch at times (or at least used to back when I played regularly).
I get up on the mound and he sets up. . . what followed was me realizing I cannot pitch anymore, I have literally no control anymore. I mean zero, I cannot get it over the plate. I can still make the ball do what I want it to do (I throw FB, Slider, Curve, and have a mediocre Knuckleball I throw for fun that people actually told me isn't too easy to hit), but I can't control location AT ALL.
My main problem isn't inside or outside, my problem is I keep throwing low or even in front of the plate at times. I don't know what happened to me (obviously no practice, but I couldn't have lost it all!). I then tried to bring my velocity down and still, not even close. I brought my fastball down a whole 10 ticks or so, half-lobbing it I finally could throw strikes. We did this for about 30 mins and got bored with my inconsistency. Any advice?
Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!
