A Pitcher's Thoughts

April 30, 2018

FREE WRITING

11
flick your wrist hard
look at the catcher
don't throw the ball too high-
or too low, either
turn your hips fast
point your glove out
step far forward 
stand straight up
don't overstep
open and close

be fast
don't hit the batter; 

but don't throw the ball too far outside
watch the runner on third
watch stealing

full count
throw strikes
your team depends on you
everything must be perfect
don't bend your knees
smile
grip the ball correctly
snap your wrist
let go of the ball exactly at your hips
don't listen to the other team
be small, then explode
don’t bend your back
and most of all,
everyone's watching you.
so don't. 
mess.
up.


Trust me, it's a lot harder than it looks. And I both love and hate it. <3

    Oh yea the most frustrating thing as a goalie is the team only sees the mistakes you make and not the saves, IT'S SO FRUSTRATING!!
