I have a 12 year old who plays for 3 travel teams (2 for tournaments only) and still has a year of eligibility in LL. I have heard some horror stories about making the transition from the smaller field to the “big” field and how it can be frustrating. Timing for hitting can get messed up and pitching that extra 10’ can have an effect as well.
He is a fantastic pitcher and will be heading to Cooperstown twice this year as well as several higher end tournaments. Just interested in some opinions / experiences that anyone has had. I don’t want to say he CAN’T play, but I want him to understand that it could possibly lead to a frustrating season on both fields if he were to play modified.
