Pitching challenges are a great way to end a pitching workout. They not only push your pitchers to improve but also get them to work as a pitching staff. It’s not about who is better or who wins the competition. It's about how you are as a team.
The Colorado State University pitching staff describe some great drills to help cultivate the pitching staff. One example is both pitchers will throw a curve ball. If one pitcher hits her spot, and the other doesn't, the player that hit her spot has to run. It's about working together, not against one another. Watch as they go in depth about some drills they do and how they emphasize the importance of working as a pitching staff.
