This weeks interview is with journeyman, left-handed pitcher Rich Hill.
Hill’s advice to young pitchers is all about control, a word synonymous with pitching, but a different type than you might be thinking.
It involves mentally controlling what you can control, specifically one’s effort and attitude.
Hill encourages pitchers to stay focused on the task at hand, and to only think about their next pitch, not a previous mistake or the batter on deck.
Hill began the 2016 season as the Oakland Athletics fifth starting pitcher in the rotation. This is his ninth different team since joining the league in 2005.
