Ok guys, .... bear with me .... This isn't a huge issue, but so far I've had a tendency to call a high strike, not that there's anything wrong with it, but .... let me continue. My issue is, ... finding out in the post game after asking my partner ... he said it was borderline but more high than borderline...."not chin high, but it was pretty up there". Now, I heard nothing but a stupid mom say something about the pitch, and nothing from the batter or dugout, so I know it can't be THAT bad, so, why am I asking you ask? My question is, ... what are some tips (I know this is very elementary and I apologize) for seeing that high strike and knowing its high or a bit up? I know a lot of guys will lock your eyes at the top of the zone ...if it goes above your line of sight, "ball", and that makes sense but not necessarily that easy. I'm assuming my issue is that on those pitches, I'm not tracking completely w/ my eyes (probably ). I say this because I remember another pitch that I tracked perfectly that was up in the zone and I balled it and saw it clearly. Again that's probably it as it's still very early in our season. Another tip I was thinking ... F2's glove location can help as well ...where the ball is caught....height of glove? Anyhow ... I know that this site is THE PLACE for stuff like this, and I know I'll get good feedback. Again, I'm pretty sure I'm having a tracking issue when this happens, but ...I'm looking for tips on that upper part of the zone/borderline pitch. Thanks all ... appreciation in advance!
