I will now start posting on my log 3/4 way through my 11u all star season. To recap, I’ve pitched 26 1/3 Innings and have an era of 1.37 per 9 innings(we play 6). I have only walked 2 batters and have a fastball going from 54-57 MPH. I also have a nice changeup.


#3

First Start of log(6th if all star season): 6.0 IP, 3 ER, 7 H, 8 K, 0 BB, 81 Pitches

We ended up winning this game 13-5. This is my worst game of the all star year letting up 2 HR’s and some line drives.


#4

Day after start: Plated first base in game. I also did throwers 10 workout(like I do everyday) and about 5 min of 130 feet long toss.

P.S.- My arm felt great

Frankly, to be flat out honest, if you’re only 11, I am concerned your coach is letting you throw 81 pitches a game. This is one of the many reasons youth pitchers get injured (arm overuse). If you are 11, you should NOT be throwing 81 pitches and if you did (or do), I highly recommend resting your arm the day after.

Don’t drop the weight, just drop the fat.
