Personally I find baseball to be a fairly uninteresting sport, but one aspect of the game that I have Plenty of respect for is the pitchers. Being able to put out a 150/160kph fastball is really awesome.
So, I was very happy to finally find a place in west Kobe where you can measure your own pitching speed.
I went along recently to test myself out,...but I was slightly disappointed with my result!!
The highest I managed was 123kph. I have never done any form of actual training so I think it is not bad, but I was really hoping to get 130 on the day.
So I have set myself a target of 130kph by the end of the year. (Though I am not really sure how one is supposed to go about getting better at such things).
So how about you guys?! Do we have any 140+ pitchers in our ranks?
And are there any training tips/techniques for pitching??
