Hoping for a little advice here, thanks for any help.
just setting the scene here, i’m a competitive 16 year old boy who wants to win every game every time, everywhere. the only problem is this hardheaded thinking gets in the way of common sense as i’m sure some people can relate to. this past year i was thrown on short rest, shorter rest, and shortest rest, and as the shoulder and elbow pain start to set in here in the later part of the season, i look back on what i could have done differently, and what i can hopefully do in the future. i’ll put one example out for you, after throwing 3 times in a weekend tournament a week before, my baseball team went to long island for the baseball heaven tournament they have there, i had a blast, one problem, too much throwing i think. friday night i warmed up to play first base, played first and warmed up to pitch in the 7th inning but didn’t come in, we lost, if we lost another we would go home so my coach hit the panic button the next day and i didn’t stop him. rolling out there to throw 6 innings at 2 oclock, and then 6 innings at 8 oclock that night. i ran out of gas in the 6th inning of the second game, lost everything, but we won both and advanced, my pitch count for the day was 189. the next day we played again and again i warmed up and played another game. here we are 2 weeks later, just tried to throw a real light bullpen and found a bunch of pain in my shoulder still, so i stopped and came home. any advice on how to stop coaches from overpitching kids? or advice on how to recooperate now that i’ve thrown so much. or advice on any part of this message. thanks for the help
