My son is 8 and plays baseball as a pitcher in the minors division. He does pretty good and I will be submitting some videos very shortly for anyone to help critique.
I am wondering at what age would it be appropriate for him to start with the overall fitness aspect of athletics, specifically baseball/pitching? He plays a short two month season and is off the rest of the year. We live in a small N. Michigan town so their are no travel teams or anything just little league once a year. I really wish their was more baseball for him in this area.
I am thinking of putting him on a offseason program of some sort. I am just curious about his age. Should I wait a couple more years and just let him enjoy being a kid? Not get to serious to fast? He loves baseball and so do I. I am curious about functional fitness as well as overall fitness is general for his age. I know weights are obviously not appropriate for his age level.
