I’ve done about everything I can think of with my 13 year old…
circle change grip, box, three finger
Yet, he still has the problem of throwing it down into the ground about 3/4 of the way to the plate.
I’m at a loss and I know how important it is for him to throw it. He does not have the confidence in the pitch now and therefore is not throwing it. This leads some kids to be able to tee off on his 68 mph fastball at times.
He throws a very good slider but I don’t want him throwing that more than 8-10 times at the most in a game.
I’ve heard you should hold a change up tight to choke it, I’ve also heard you have to hold it loose…with fingers up, etc.
I’ve heard another method (circle change) where you should throw it such that you are throwing the circle with the palm facing outward ??Not sure what that means…pronating the hand on release?? throwing the circle at the glove?
I just havn’t been able to get him where he can consistently throw near strikes with about a 7 mph difference.
When he throws strikes it because he slows down his arm action and the ball is only 3 mph slower.
Please Help :shock:
