I have a question, I coach a U12 team and my stepson is a pitcher on it. My question is how much pitching should he do in between starts? Right now we are playing in about 2 games a week. I try to keep his pitch count down to about 65-70 pitches a game, and i try to not have any of my pitchers throw back to back games. ihave about 6 guys that can throw, and about 3 that can actually pitch and pitch well.
My other question is about another pitcher on the team, he has good velocity and can spot the ball well, but he seems to tire out rather quickly(like 3rd inning), what should i suggest he do outside of practice to help build his stamina? I know he plays a lot of basketball after school, but i dont know if that is sapping his energy.
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks alot!
