I live in New Zealand and have started to pitch a bit. The problem is that there are no baseball grounds in my city or anywhere in New Zealand, therefore no mound. How does a baseball mound affect your pitching speed or doesn’t it have any impact on it?? Also where is it best to place a speed gun?
Also since im fairly new to pitching is it expected that say 14 and upwards pitchers are going to be quicker than me as they have grown up with baseball, been through training for all those years as where I am no just taking it up at age 17?
