Ok I have a friend and as I see it he has the potential to be something great. He’s 15 and he throws:
1). 4 Seam fastball (Goes about 80-85 ‘Changes speeds very well’) And clocked 92 one time on a pitching gun.
2). Splitter (That will start at about chest level and break to the knees easily…)
3). Sinker (Won’t break as much like its suppose to but breaks like a slower moving splitter.)
4). Change-up (His worst pitch but as good as he is that’s not saying much. It can still be used consistently with great accuracy.)
Ok well his problem is after a while people catch on the if he’s not throwing the fastball then it’s gonna break low. And after about the 4th he starts giving up hit after hit… All of his pitches break low and he wants to add a pitch like a Slider or a Cutter that he could throw a little higher to throw people off.
His only problem is though is at first when he started throwing the slider it was breaking decent not anything special but good enough… Well now he throws it (He hasn’t changed anything from the first time) And it has know break at all it just goes straight like a fastball…
Could anybody help him out try to figure out what’s wrong?
