I'll try to make this quick, my first post. My son, now 12, has pitched well for over two years. He's in a new league now, with more kids that he knows than the league he was in last year, and he suddenly can hardly throw the ball. When we practice together he's drilling it to the glove after some warm-up throws (which do start pretty wild for some reason now), but on the mound in a game he's throwing it in the dirt, sometimes behind the batter. I've tried everything I know--just have fun--forget about who's up, or who's watching--just having a catch--taking a deep breath between pitches--among others, nothing seems to work. I've even suggested taking a break from pitching, but he wants to fight on.
I feel so bad for him, he's so down about this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
