First, I would like to say…this site has been a great tool to me in helping my 9 yr old son with his pitching.
This is his first year in kid pitch baseball as a pitcher. He is tall for his age and he is fairly thin. Dr’s project him to be about 6’3 or taller. He does not possess a lot of velocity and seems to tire quickly in game situations. His control is usually good until he starts to get tired. He has two solid innings and sometimes a 3rd before he starts to “guide” the ball.
I have come across Dick Mills’ web-site several times searching for pitching tips and mechanics. He has a “free” pitching report that he will send you if you sign-up. I’m sure that it is a marketing tool for his videos and books. Has anyone read this report? Is it worthwhile?
My son and I will start working on an off-season workout program in a couple of weeks when the season is over. I want to make sure that he has good base of mechanics to work from and that we take care of his arm. Anytime we work on pitching he always runs after the workout and we ice him down.
