In this podcast, Patrick Jones, a former hitting coach for the Baltimore Orioles, addresses the challenge of hitting slow pitching. He emphasizes six key strategies for success: managing expectations to avoid negative outcomes, treating slow pitchers like any other, focusing on being selective by shrinking the hitting zone, exaggerating approaches to counteract timing issues, maintaining a positive mindset regardless of past struggles, and occasionally sacrificing at-bats to reset mentally. Patrick stresses the importance of specific practice routines to develop comfort with slower speeds and advises against overly stressing about immediate results, advocating instead for a long-term approach to hitting success.
