Hi to start off I’m a senior in high school, I started playing baseball my freshman year, my high school is Estero High School and has had a very prestigious varsity program. I got cut my freshman year but picked the game up in about 2 years, the coaches are astounded by my ability in such a short time by my senior year iv finally made varsity, I have a 4 Seam, 2 Seam, Sinker, Circle Change, and a Curve. The problem I’m asking to some whatbe answered is that my velocity is very low, especially at the varsity level, I barley break 70. The only reason I’m on varsity now is because I have such wicked movement on all my pitches even great hitters have a hard time getting hit off me. I will try and post a video but currently do not have one, so if someone could bare with me and appreciate it slot.
So the best I can give you for now is that I’m 6-2/6-3 and about 135 lbs, I know I’m about 40lbs under weight I hit a growth spurt and I’m working on gaining weight. I have an about 75-80 inch wing span( hence my username bird) and a very high leg kick. The way I could describe my windup is an exact combination of Justin Verlander and Nolan Ryan’s wind up(this is my natural windup, I didn’t strive for it). I’m trying to wonder why I throw 70 and there is another guy just like me who is 6-3/6-4 and 140/145lbs and throws about 92 mph.
So is there anything anyone can give me such as advice, I mean I don’t know if its my timing or if I don’t glide my hips properly but this is very hard to tell with out a video but if somebody could just help me out id really really appreciate it.
Thanks in Advance.
