Learn the secretes to becoming a more successful pitcher by mastering your fastball!
Pitching to Win With Your Fastball provides a comprehensive overview of the factors involved in each variant of the fastball. This comprehensive coaching course points out that every type of pitch is thrown with fastball arm speed and fastball mechanics.
