There are three components to any pitch. They are:

1. Location (most important)

Your fastball may not be 100 MPH, but if it's on the corner at the knee, it's hard for any batter to hit it.

2. Movement (second most important)

It doesn't matter how hard you throw it, if your pitch is as straight as a string, good hitter will hit it. It's the late movement on pitches that makes hitters miss

3. Velocity (least important, but nice to have!)

OK, I'll admit it's nice to be able to throw hard enough to throw the ball by hitters, but velocity is the least important of the three components to any pitch.

When you work on your little league baseball pitches, try to get all three elements behind your pitch!
