11yo pitcher has consistent mechanics, and a pretty consistent ball flight that ends up head-high and to the right. Actually, smack square in the head of a right handed batter. I tracked 30 practice throws last night. 4 were dead center strikes, two at the ankles of a left handed batter (low and left), and the other 24 were in the same spot, right about where the head of a 10 year old righty would be in the box.
The interesting thing is that the first 19 high and right pitches were all in a row. He said those felt effortless. After the first 12, I had him close his eyes on a few, and they went in the same spot. I tried a quick drill on head position and posture, and then he threw the 4 strikes and two low and left, and then 5 more high and right.
He’s not bending very far, but before I stumble in there and ruin that effortless feeling for him, can anyone offer any tips?
