Hey there! My name is Edward Maximo Huang. I am a 14 year old, about to enter high school after summer, looking to join the baseball team as a pitcher. I currently have two pitches: a fastball that hovers around 65 mph, and a curveball thrown in the high-40s and low-50s. When pitching, I utilize a slide step occasionally that does not result in lower velocity, but, I am unsure as to how stressful it could be on my arm (haven't experienced soreness, just looking for safety reassurance). Any criticism of my mechanics along with any other recommendations of drills to improve would be highly appreciated! I have attached two videos below, which include my regular motion along with my slide step.
