I was wondering about swimming as a conditioning routine for pitchers.
My son has been swimming for years. He’s been on our local swim team since he was five, and he has developed a strong core and legs. He pitched for the first full season last summer. He’s thirteen, a little over six feet tall and around 200 pounds. He also throws very hard. When the swim season started, he was a bit fatigued early in the season; but as the season went on, his stamina increased to the point where he threw harder as the game went along.
So, will swimming help his pitching?
