He’s been pitching for about a year now and has done really well against USSSA AA and AAA competition – we haven’t played any majors teams, yet.
It’s been a few months since he was on a radar gun, but he was sitting around 49/50 and topping out around 53. This last weekend, we finally got back to playing baseball, but before that, our last tournament was at the end of Feb. During the covid-19 stuff, he wanted to start a workout and weight training program, which we did. We also still practiced baseball every week.
Anyway, I think he’s gained some stamina and velocity and will get him back on the gun soon. I just want to make sure I am not missing anything mechanical that could be hindering development or promoting injury?
Here is a video from the Feb tournament:
Here is a video from last weekend:
The video from last weekend, he was on his 6th inning over two days, so he was tiring a bit.
Here is the statline for the two 2020 tourneys:
11 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 30 K, 1 HBP
Like I said, the numbers look fine to me – the results do too. Being a righty, it’s really hard for me to translate much from a lefty. I know his leg lift looks a little awkward, but I don’t know if it’s something worthy of an immediate address. Any thoughts, tips, etc. are greatly appreciated.
