We also know that every pitcher in history of the game throws balls.

No one has perfect control, not even Maddox. If the object of crowding the plate is to take away the inside of the plate and force more pitches in the middle of the plate to avoid HBP. I would suggest doing just the opposite. Call more high inside fastballs. If one of the batters crowding the plate happens to take one in the ear at about 93, that is a part of the game also. Crowding the plate as a strategy is stupid and dangerous. If that happens and you coach your kids to crowd the plate the consequences are on you.
