My son is a LHP, throws around 80 mph and is a very crafty lefty with a good 2 seam/cu combo. He's been told he has great mechanics from local college coaches and at combines. He's a junior and playing in his 3rd year on varsity. His HS coach does not keep pitch count nor has any regard for pitcher arm health. Never warms up relief, has starters throw complete games then catcher the next day etc... I've tried talking to him, the athletic director, no help. I'm the helicopter dad that likes to complain and be a know it all now. So yesterday he throws 6 innings, 3 of which are elongated due to errors so he's probably well over 100 pitches when he gets relief and the coach puts him in center. Next play is a base hit to center, my son throws it in and feels a pop in his shoulder and elbow. I'm furious and make a bit of a scene but just can't control it anymore. In this day and age of information it is abhorrent to me to be so cavalier. I coach in college so I have our trainer look at him and she thinks it's minor tendinitis in bicep and slight strain in tricep. No damage suspected and prescribes Rest, ice. No swelling or redness. My question is where do I go? I'm at a loss. This coach has been reprimanded but they won't move on from him and it seems the more I complain the more he takes it out on my kid. He wants to play for his school but I'm really thinking long term he'd be better off walking away from this situation. Has anyone here dealt with this or have any suggestions?
