My son is LH pitcher who is 10 years old. Going into yesterday’s game he had pitched 8 innings walking only 1 batters and striking out 20. His problem is that he has hit 7 kids. 5 of the kids he hit he was 0-2 on.
Yesterday he walked a kid to lead off the inning and then hit the next 2 kids and started to fall apart. He is not real wild but he just has these few pitches that go straight at the batters feet.
After yesterday I can tell his confidence is really shaky because he does not want to hurt anyone.
Any thoughts on how to handle this? I would love to find a cure to what he does wrong on these few pitches.
