Sure glad I found this site.
I’d like to introduce myself as I know I will be on this site quite often, Maybe not posting but surely reading everything
My son Robbie, will be 10 on July 21st of this year and has been in little league baseball since the age of 3 1/2.
We live in northern Ontario, Canada in a small town called Timmins, you may have heard of it. Shania Twain comes from Timmins as well as many many hockey players.
Last year at the age of 8, my son Robbie was tested with a radar gun and his fastball was clocked at 69 mph. This year I do not know. All I know is that the kids cannot hit his balls and they are all afraid of his balls.
This is his first year as a pitcher and I (and his dad) am reading all the information I can to help him out and also (I only found out!) how not to injure his arm at an early age.
He is really an awesome pitcher for his age and would love a baseball career, but unfortunately for him, I think his career will be short lived living in such a remote area of Canada.
I would love to read stories of how other people have overcome small town obstacles as well as all the politics that come with small town sports.
Thanks for reading and hope to meet all of you.
