The question's asked how to throw a perfect pitch in baseball. I suppose a perfect pitch is any pitch that the batter misses. So anytime that you successfully execute a pitch that results in a strike, and the batter doesn't hit it I suppose that would be a perfect pitch at least for that scenario. But to get to the position that you can throw perfect pitches if you will you have to have good fundamental mechanics. Work on your fundamentals in the bull pen. Make sure that when you throw that you get good separation with your hands, you stay back. That your foot strikes the ground never heel toe. And that you have good pitching fundamentals throughout. Work on your long tossing drills to gain more velocity so you can throw the ball by the batter, and then do some various exercises, and some bio-mechanic drills that will help you become more fundamentally sound. But to throw a perfect pitch in baseball you have got to make the batter miss that ball, and to do that you have got to throw it in the location, and the speed that he is most least likely to hit it. That is a perfect pitch. If he misses it you threw a perfect pitch at least for that time. So get your work in the bull pen done, get your work done with your long toss, do your bio-mechanic exercises, get prepared to pitch, and then when you get out there on the mound you throw the ball exactly where you want it to go, and the batter misses it, and you have thrown a perfect pitch in baseball.
