To obtain a more comprehensive analysis you can mail a video of the pitcher pitching and Jerry will analyze a specific pitch for you.
The video must be of good quality. The pitcher must be seen from a back view and behind the catcher. It is imperative that Jerry sees the ball coming in to the catcher.
There is a $35.00 fee for each pitch or video submitted. After analyzing the video, Jerry will contact you via telephone to setup a live Zoom video call to discuss any problems he detects and give recommendations on how to rectify them.
You may also contact Jerry to setup a consultation via live Zoom video call. The cost is $70.00 for 45 minutes.

Types of Pitches:
The Triple Pitch
The Triple Pitch is effective due to its unique spin. When pitched correctly, the pitch can do several different things. The speed is between a fastball and a change up, with a slight curve and a very slight drop. The Triple Pitch has two grips and two releases.
- Can be used as additional off speed pitch.
- Great pitch selection to use in a bunt situation so the ball will stay on the ground.
- With the two grips and two releases the ball has a fast and effective spin that travels 11/5 toward the catcher.
- The speed is between your fastball and change-up.
- Good additional pitch to use when your change-up and rise ball are not performing at their peak.
- Like any new pitch, it takes time to develop your muscle memory. So, don't give up. It will come. PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE.
- Can be used as a first pitch to get ahead in the count.
- Use on corners and keep low.
- As our pitcher becomes more advanced in throwing breaking pitches, she will use less fastballs.
- Most good college pitchers don't use many fastballs, because they must make the ball move. As the batters will hit the straight fastball.
- The speed for a fastball, of a good high school pitcher is high 50's to low 60's.
- A riseball is a sucker pitch usually used when you are ahead in the count.
- In college and good "ASA" ball risers account for more third strikes than any other pitch.
- It should be thrown at the shoulders.
- If the batter makes contact it is usually a fly ball or pop-up.
- Used mostly on left-handed batters and slappers.
- Can be used on right-handed batter to jam them.
- Can be thrown as a strike or a waste pitch.
- A curve can be thrown using different speeds which makes it a multi-purpose pitch.
- A drop ball is thrown when you are ahead in the count, as it is usually called a ball by the umpire.
- It can be used when a ground ball is needed.
- It can be used as a first pitch to a team who is aggressive and swings at the first pitch.
- If the umpire is calling this a strike use it!!!!
- Should be thrown at the knees.
- To be used when the batter is swinging ahead of a fastball, never when a batter is swinging behind.
- Show early in the game for psychological advantages.
- Keep low and outside, 10-15 MPH slower than your fastball.
