How to Pitch a Softball


Becoming a pitcher in fast-pitch softball needs to be a commitment. Pitchers need to be able to put in a lot of extra time, hard work, and dedication to be good at what they do. Pitching underhand in the windmill style is a very specific skill. It’s not something that we can just do overnight. If you decide to become a fast pitch pitcher, you need to be willing to put in lots of extra time. This means coming early to practice, staying late, and also finding time to pitch outside of practice. Most pitchers are going to be throwing 4 to 5, 6 days a week. In order to keep their arm in good shape, not only in condition, but also to continue improving. Many fast pitch pitchers find a pitching instructor at a very young age. It’s important to learn the mechanics of pitching correctly from the start.
