I broke my pitching delivery mechanics down and confirmed what I felt that day. Things weren't going our way as you can see with the ground ball up the middle. A double play would have gotten us out of the inning but hey, things could have been worse. I pitch from the submarine angle and from a Three-Quarters delivery which gives me an element of deception when everything is working right. Slider from the submarine angle, curve ball from Three-Quarters, and forkballs and fastballs from both angles. That day I felt like I couldn't get low enough and was mainly throwing sidearm instead of true submarine. It turns out my arm slot was pretty low on my Three-Quarters delivery as well causing both deliveries to look too similar. For some reason I had no feel for my slider that day which is my best pitch. It wasn't a great outing but at least I can take something away from it and learn from the experience. I am always grateful for the opportunities I have recieved and never take them for granted. I'm a way better hitter than I am a pitcher but there are way more opportunities for pitchers. I will never drop the bats completely but know that being able to pitch is the key to the clubhouses.
