Question for Roger


#1

Roger,
Exactly what does Tom House recommend for using weighted balls? Does he say to pitch with them? Long toss with them? or just throw them?


#2

Good question - I don’t know the answer. I’ll try to email the NPA and ask. But I don’t know how soon I’ll get a response given that it’s Xmas time.

I do know they recommend using only the 4, 5, and 6 oz balls.

He’s a proponent of the 4, 5, and 6 ounce balls. In fact, the weighted baseballs I used in college and pro ball were Tom Houses’s. Apparently he made a line of three weighted baseballs about six or seven years ago. The underweight one was green. The over weight one was black (which actually made it difficult to see in the gym or backyard).
