Our league won’t start practices until this weekend, but I already know from our evaluations that I just drafted a 12 year old who has got a pretty strong arm, but regularly throws in the dirt, allowing base runners to get in scoring position.
Can anyone suggest any remedies for a pitcher at that age who consistently misses low? Is it just a matter of concentration and control? I realize this may be a tough question to answer without seeing him throw, but thought you might have some ideas as to what I should be looking for.
I also noticed that his throws were low when we put him at 3rd and had him make a play to 1st. Same thing. Lots of balls in the dirt.
