hey guys whats up.
I have a question that would be awesome if you guys could answer it.
Question: Today in the afternoon at 1:30 i went out with my brother and we did some long toss. I warmed up and did everything, rubber tubing, arm circles, and even did a run and stretched. I start throwing and my arm felt pretty good. When i start to increase the distances my arm felt sore. I then went to the mound and threw about 3 pitches. They were at 78mph and my arm felt pretty sore. Anyways i rested for a bit and at about 5:00 i went into my back yard with my brother and we played catch for about 5 minutes or so not long at all. And i tried to throw pretty hard. I got gunned at 81mph,81mph,82mph. My arm felt pretty good.
I went to baseball practice at 7:00 did long toss and i then went on the mound and i averaged about 84-85mph and i topped out at 87mph. I threw about 30 pitches and my arm felt awesome. I could have thrown forever it was just awesome.
Why is this: Is it because i didn’t stretch that much because i took about 15 minutes to stretch and i did my rubber tubing, arm circles and everything. If someone can please help me with this. I am not upset. Damn 85mph at age 17(just turned 17 like a month ago) So ya i am pretty happy with that and topping out at 87mph. I would just like to know how i can be throwing my hardest the very first time i go out and pitch.
