been lurking several years - First Post
Been reading about younger players being slow & robotic with delivery.
To some extent this fits my soon to be 13 year old son. He is 5’ 3" & weighs 140+. Is right handed & his fastball tops about 63, as clocked at a recent University of Illinois camp.
Recenly started working with him to speed up from the top of his leg kick. Very successful from the windup. His speed was noticeably faster & still maintained control. However, when we tried it from the stretch, he had many problems. He not only had trouble speeding up, he had substantial loss of control & his speed fluctuated. With all this being said, can anybody recommend ways of speeding up the hips & lower body from the stretch.
Thanks in advance
