My son, who is 13, threw his first complete game last weekend. his final line was; 6 inn., 2 er, 9 k’s, 3 bb, 5 hits.
Here’s the problem, if it is a problem. In the game he threw 92 pitches. This was his only outing for the weekend. He mostly threw FB(2 and 4 seam) and change up(circle), with 7-8 curve balls mixed in.
He showed no fatigue, was able to keep the ball down in the zone, and actually seemed to get stronger as the game progressed. His velocity never dropped off and in the 5th and 6th innings threw harder than the first 4.
Is this a problem for a 13 year old to throw 92 pitches in an outing? If so what is your recommended pitch counts.
I should also note that the day after, he only had slight tightness in his shoulder and bicep, no pain. He rested two days after the game, then threw a light session on the 3rd day with no pain or tightness.
I look forward to your opinions.
