How can a LHP increase velocity quickly?


I’m 16 and around 5’9’’-5’10’’ area. I throw consistently in the 65-70 MPH fastball range, and I’m looking to get my velocity to 70+ MPH consistently within the next few weeks before my first travel ball tournament. How can I do this? How could I gain even more velocity? (80+)


Picking up 5 or more mph in a short amount of time is unlikely unless you’ve got a serious mechanical issue that you can correct quickly.


Post some video. Like Roger said, mechanics should be the focus.


I’ll get some footage on here within the week.
