From a previous post in a different category…come on, help a brother out …

Ok, since I was a youngster all the dads that volunteered their time would always preach to me " pitchers must wear long sleeves ". Through high school I did exactly that, whether it was 45 or 95 … and of course put the jacket (and BenGay !) over my arm in between innings. Once I began my cup of coffee in pro ball, I decided to bag the sleeves…and loved it. So last night, my 14 year old son asks me “Dad, it’s 80 out today so tell me again why do I need to wear sleeves ?” And here I am wondering, if it’s ok for him to be outside shooting hoops in shorts and a tee shirt, why do I bundle him up to go to the yard? Help me gang…I have a feeling “because I told you so” isn’t going to play much longer!!

All of the posts from the “Pitching by Age Group” section have simply been moved to the “General Pitching” category. The “sleeves discusion” is near the bottom of this General Pitching category, since the last post was a week or so ago.
