In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Aug 27, 2009

Some softball players think pitchers aren't important in slowpitch softball, because you can't do much finessing with a pitch that floats in to the batter at fifteen miles per hour. 

This show offers some tips on how to be more than just a pitching machine.

My book, Coaching and Managing Adult Slowpitch Softball, is available here.

Matt, I'd say that trick pitches are quick pitches before the batter is ready, and between-the-legs and behind-the-back pitches.

Also the windmill-the-arm-numerous-times-before-releasing-the-ball pitches. Stuff like that.

What would you consider a "trick pitch" in slow pitch softball?

Say you were looking over rules for a new leaguw, and it said "No trick pitches." What would that mean to you??
