DHBB 9: Command Performance

With today’s game being so top-heavy with emphasis on power — at the plate and on the mound — I talked with Larry about the importance of command for a pitcher: being able to locate pitches in the best spots to get hitters out.

We also talked about the 1964 Phillies and the National League pennant race that season; the 1969 Astros’ fade; and pitchers who maintained exceptional velocity throughout long careers.
