My 7 year old’s 8U team is making the transition to kid pitch baseball. As a hard throwing lefty, they’re looking to him to do some of the pitching. His results are pretty good, rarely gives up hits, but walks too many batters. He’s throwing roughly 50% strikes. The misses are all either high, or less frequently, bounced in front of the plate. Are there any shortcuts to finding a consistent release point? We don’t practice pitching much, due to my reluctance to over work him at this point in life. Probably averaging one 20 pitch bullpen, and 1-2 innings in a game per week. He throws a lot, and is much more accurate in non-pitching situations.
I have a couple videos on my phone, I’ll try to get them uploaded.
I think this should work. The 2nd and 4th pitches are typical high misses. Couldn’t find video if anything bounced, but those come as he tries to adjust.
