My son who is 13 & a lanky lefty likes to throw side-arm. I know this is a big topic of debate but I need another opinion on his mechanics. His coach & I would like him to raise his elbow above his shoulder when he throws. I don’t make him come over the top but at least low 3/4. He doesn’t like it but he seems to throw harder when he will do it.
I trust his coaches opinion so I will keep him up but if there are any lefties here who have gone through the same thing, I’d like to hear what you have to say.
