These clips have been grouped by age. I have put them together so that parents can see how ther pitcher looks relative to kids of the same age. Sometimes its hard to be a parent/coach because your sample size is so small.
Not to state the obvious, but it is clear that youth pitchers share characteristics by age. Generally it seems that the best nine year old pitcher will look more like other nine year old pitchers than he will look like a twelve year old pitcher. Perhaps physical maturity is a limiting factor on pitching mechanics development.
I would appreciate others’ thoughts on this.
