He only pitches when we are down in the game or need to shut other teams out other than that he is behind the plate catching, so managing his pitch count isn’t really an issue at this point. He is continuing to build his arm strength by lifting light weights and constant rubber band exercise. Thanks for your input about not slowing him down so that he can develop the intent to throw hard, good reminder. We will work on reaching 10mph less that his fastball for his change ups. He has a crazy knuckle ball that he throws but if someone were to get a hold of it, it would probably be out of the park. His coaches likes curves but at this age i think they are to young for that, whats your thoughts on kids his age throwing curves all game?
