More on being a Pitcher’s Girl

IMG_20160410_222818I am writing my first novel, my male character in the book is based on Jake and this is what he has taught me as I have watched him pitch.

 

The battle on the field is between the pitcher and batter, trying to psych each other into making a mistake. That can see the batter win by getting on base or the pitcher getting him out, by way of strikeout or getting him to hit to the offense. At times it’s a battle of who is more stubborn, who will win the battle in the end.  Jake is so focused taking each batter as they come. You can watch him yell at himself as things when wrong, those on the field would hear about it. Mistakes that have been made and positive support when turning that much-needed double play, and its  no fun when he hit a losing streak.
