How come I throw so slow even though I’m the biggest in my league


I’m 6,3 165lbs as a freshman and my fastball sits around 77mph but people smaller than me in my league are throwing in the 80’s, just need to know what I can do to catch up with them.


don’t stress out too much

a well located 77mph fastball will always be better than a 80mph fastball that isn’t that well located


I will assume you have had a recent growth spurt and you need to get adjusted to your new center of gravity and your lever length changes need to be worked into your movement patterns. Don’t stress it. When they are still throwing 80, you will probably be throwing 85.
