Hello I am a new member . I have 4 boys ages 14 to 5 and they all play Baseball. So I am busy.
My problem is I have a 10 year old left hander. He is in Colt Baseball right now and hits off of a pitching machine now. Next year is Pitching league. He plays catcher now. Yes a left handed catcher. He is the only player we have that can catch the ball behind plate.
He wants to Pitch so bad next year and of course everyone including my uncle who played minor league ball has told him for years he is going to be a pitcher. I am not so sure. He throws and bats left handed and always has . But he writes with his right hand. He has a problem with accuracy when throwing hard . I would love to teach him basic pitching mechanics but I pitched in little league for 2 years and was a catcher from then on. I do not know what to start teaching him.
My question is where do I start and what do I look for . I do not want to build him up to pitch and then he finds out he is just not cut out to pitch.Hitting is not a problem he has been the cleanup hitter for 2 years now. But I have no clue how to teach a 10 year old left hander how to pitch and my older son has been told not to teach him anything. He is an outfielder and thinks he knows how to pitch, but theres a reason he plays center field and its nots because he knows how to pitch. Any help would great
