I am 21 years old, i used to be a decent pitcher in HS. I havent thrown a baseball in about 2.5 - 3 years. The last time i threw was at college and i was in the mid 80s with my fastball.
I have decided to give baseball one last shot before i quit lyaing for good because i miss the game too much. I am planning on trying out for some minor league teams next year, because i got too late of a jump this year.
Today is the 4th time i have thrown since years ago… I thought i was throwing pretty hard until i got the radar gun out. I was throwing 68-75 mph and only hit 76 once.
I was throwing flat ground in a tennis court, i know that will have some effect, but im sure it wouldnt be 10 mph difference.
I have never felt so disappointed in my life. Is this normal because I havent thrown forever… if so, do you think i will be able to get my speed back within a year?
Thanks for the comments
