My son Zach just turned 10, 2 weeks ago.
He has been taking private pitching lessons for the past 2 years with a division 1 coach.
His mechanics are fantastic and during
lessons pitching to a coach, he is very accurate and has started to place pitches when directed by his coach.
The problem lies when he pitches in a game with a kid in the batters box.
He cheats himself out of his beautiful follow through and also tends to pitch outside much more so than in a lesson.
Finding a sacrificial kid to stand in the box during a lesson is not possible.
He pitched for a minor league pitcher last week who told him that he has great talent. I just hate to see him cheat himself out of his full potential when it comes to pitching in a game where it counts.
