Well you may find my story very hard to believe, If im lieing God strike me in the head with a 300 mph fastball…ok Im still here.
Well Im 18 yrs old and i throw in the 88-90 mph range. I flirt with 91 92 once in a while depending on how i feel. Now this is the part you probably would never believe, I never iced my arm in my life and/or had pain in my arm. (Truth) I practice everyday for about 6 hours a day.
Now this is my ‘dilema’
Whenever i throw on flat ground I can throw my normal 88-90 mph fastball. But when i throw off of a mound i Feel as if though im throwing low eighties. My mechanics are in tune because i have a pro trainer BUT when he teaches me about mechanics and such, i throw slow too. Can someone please tell me or let me know something.
Oh and one more thing. I tend to tighten my arm when i throw sort of like isometrically not keeping it really loose. Should it be kept very lose or strong?
thanks, Iknow ill be posting like crazy on this site…(Im new )
