hey guys whats up.
I was reading on a different baseball forum about this catcher asking a coach a long toss question. The coaches’ kid threw 85mph average and he was only 15 years old(WOW). Anyways the coach said they were on a long toss schedule, which is vital to any pitcher.
The coach said that whenever his son did long toss the farthest he ever threw was 120ft. Would this work for me as well. Because my back yard is 120ft exactly and i alwasy have to drive 10 minutes every day to our local diamond to long toss at 300ft and beyond.
The coach said his son never ever threw beyond 120ft. The reason for this was that even for an outfielder you should be hitting your cut off man at about 100ft or so. So why practice long tossing beyond 120ft if you never have to use it. That is what the coach said.
Is this how all long toss program goes. Like all you do is go to 120ft.
I am very confused now about long toss. Because every day me and my brother always threw to about 300ft. They weren’t on rainbows either. They were pretty good throws. Anyways what should i do:
Long toss at 120ft. Or long toss at 300ft. If i did long toss at 120ft that would make things so more confient because i do it every day in my backyard without any driving.
