Hi to all,
Here is a video of my 9-y.o. son (will be 10 next month).
Brief background: This was his first year pitching in Little League. We are located in Ontario, Canada and thus we aren’t home to the wealth of coaching + facilities that exists in the US. I’ve tried to teach him what I’ve read in books and seen from online videos and sites like this. He is short + light, but quite athletic which has helped compensate for his lack of weight behind his pitches.
I would really appreciate hearing some feedback on his pitching mechanics. I’d like to know what he should continue doing/reinforce and what he should adjust/fix. I believe strongly in establishing the proper mechanics and muscle memory while he is young. My hope is to avoid arm troubles through bad mechanics + prove that you don’t have to be a monster to be an effective pitcher.
Thanks to all who reply.
