I just wanted to let you all know tht hiring the pitchin coach has proven to be the best play of the season. My son is steadily showing improvement and is regaining his over all confidence, and most importantly his love for the game. For any parent that maybe isn't sure or doesn't know so much about pitching - I would recommend tht you consider hiring out and finding a good over all coach. He is now able to workon his mechanics with someone that knows, first hand and they work together at all elements of the game. Over all, my son's entire game is improving and once again, he's out there having a good time and loving it, pushing and challenging himself.
One of the bigger disappointments is that one of our teams pitchers is having a lot of trouble and pain in his arm- that I suspect is from throwing the curve ball- so young and too often- Twleve! TWelve? Twelve is too young to have that kind of pain, don't cha think?
Anyway what started off to be such a tuff season has actually come back around with all it's own rewards- in the lessons my son has learned about keeping the wrong things out of his head. Personal lessons about working hard and not giving up on bigger better dreams.
