Regarding your son's arm and how fast he is throwing the ball.  Certainly,as Bob noted, it sounds as if he has some special tools and ability, but I would suggest that you get him on an arm conditioning and rehabilitation program (if you have not all ready).  The arm is a delicate instrument and it needs exercise, conditioning, and rest.  Nothing saddens me more, on a baseball field, than to see a young boy not care of his arm and eventually gets injured and quits the game. Best of luck with him!  Sonny

Best of Luck,
Sonny

ok how about this one not my son or friend. robert stock 13yr old soon to be 14, 5' 10", 160, throws consistant 87-89 in games. robert lives in westlake village calif. and professes that his velo went up 20+ mph in three years due to ****** mechanics and products. doesnt look 13 but throws like 17-18 in tournaments all over the country.

My son just turned 14 and has been clocked at 73 mph. He hasn't been pitching, but he's going to. He's only 5' 8", weighs about 148, but won a couple punt, pass, kick competitions. He can throw ****her than I could at that age, and I had one of the best arms. He's playing quarterback as a freshman in high school. He can drive a golf ball 230 yards, ****her than I can. Plus, he's a top student. And he loves baseball. He was born with baseball knowledge. Any ideas on how best to develop him without burning him out?

  " The average 14 year-old pitcher throws around 60 mph and that equates to the ability to throw 196 feet.

If a 14 year-old pitcher can throw 78 that means he can throw a baseball 286 feet. "


I have never seen that comparison of speed to distance used before.Would you elaborate?

Alright Im 14, 5'9'' (i dont know why people put height) and I have been able to throw 80 for quite a while. I can also throw an 82 mph sinker with screwball type movement. They say that movement is really important, more so than speed. I was clocked three years ago (11) at 73. I dont know where that puts me speed wise but I have a Josh Beckett level of deception at times and the ball explodes out of my hand.

Rock on

hi i'm 9 years old and 6' tall, no, actually 7' tall and i'm 250 lbs., so i still have room to grow.
i throw my fastball consistently  in the high 90s and i'm only 8. i topped out at 109 mph though last year, but i lose my pin point control at such high speeds.
i also throw a cut fastball (a la Mo Rivera), a Fernando Valenzuela screw ball, knuckle ball with no spin (but hard to catch due to unpredictable movement), a low 90s sinker, a sharp slider, a change up with fading action, and a 12 to 6 curve that only breaks about 4 ft. (i don't want to exaggerate). All pitches rate at 75-80 on the 20-80 scouting scale.
I know i'm a little young but i'm looking to be signed by a competitve major league club, preferebly in playoff contention (the tigers, brewers, devil rays, etc. need not call). i feel i can be an ace on most any staff so contact this 7 year old phenom at 555-5555 to set up a workout (you'll be thouroghly impressed).

my name is andrew. i am 11 years old.  i play in the league that is more 12 year olds than 11 year olds.  i am 1 of the fastest pitchers in my league despite my age.  i train with a former minor leaguer every chance i get and i work on pitching and hitting.  my trainer says that i throw around 58-61 mph and i have pretty good control.  is that good for my age? if i keep working do i have a  chance at taking my game to higher levels?  by the way i am 5 feet tall and i weigh 95 pounds.  also the doctor says i will be in between 6'2 and 6'3

please reply.
thanks
andrew
