Yeah im a 6 '2 pitcher in Houston. Im pitching against number 2 ranked barbers hill rough night but still battled through. In this vid the first pitch is 76 the second 77. I can get it up to 81 i think but the fastest in a game is 79.
That is above par for a 16 year old sophmore pitcherright?. and yeah just how do the mechanics look. Also, i am looking to go to collage to play baseball so anyone who is intrested in watching me in the future send me a message much appreciated. OH yeah last but not least i think i spotted a mechanical flaw in the pictures look at my front foot its pointed kinda wrong is that a big problem or not a big deal[/quote]
I don’t know if I could/would call that above par for a 6’2’’ 16year old. It actually seems a little below average, in my experience anyway. I was just a half an inch taller than you when i was 15, and was tossing an average fastball around 83-85. Most of the guys i played with/against during my 15-16 seasons (i’m 18 pitching in college now) we averaging in mid 80’s.
But hey, dont take what i said to heart, bcuz i know alot of guys who got to their senior year and, for some reason i cant figure out, their velocity jumped between 3 and 7 mph.
If you wana work a little on arm strength than make a scheduled long toss cycle. Get help from your coach or trainer or whoever you would go to.
You can also do sprint drills to work on explosiveness.
PS—you have a verrry similar build to myself at that age, use it to your advantage. You have long arms, big broad shoulders, and alot of mass you can use to move the ball, so use it!
