question

I’m 16 years old and I tried out for my JV team this year and
didn’t make it. I believe I should have but that’s irrelevant.
My new goal is to make varsity this coming year.I’ve definetly grown
as a pitcher in terms of variety. I can throw a splitter ,sinker , dropping palm
ball , a 2 -seam fastball that has great movement from time to time . I
beleive i have the ability to make varsity , all i lack is a good varsity level
fastball . I only throw 65 usually. I would like to throw 80 by next year. any
tips on how to acheive this?

The best thing is to keep throwing. If your other stuff is working well, limit throwing those on the side. In order to develop a good fastball, you must throw to reach that level. For ex. the best thing to bench more is to bench press.
