Hi all. I am playing in a men’s fall senior league (28 - 39) and it’s been about 12 years since I have pitched. (Pitched in college). I was wondering if anyone could help me with a question, how long will it take to get my fastball up to about 75MPH after taking a long layoff? I am not out of shape, as a matter of fact, I am a personal trainer, who trains with kettlebells etc…
I ask this because I bought one of these glove radar things to track my progress, but my fastball seems to only go up to 55MPH! Are these things accurate? What’s the best thing to measure velocity, a bushnell radar gun?
Thanks. I appreciate all the help and all the great posts. I wish this site woiuld have been around when I pitched. I have learned so much.
