As my sophomore season of college starts up, I've noticed my velocity in my pitches has decreased a ton through out the years I have been playing. I started out pitching my junior year in high school topping out around 91 and consistent 88-89 spotting up. My senior year in high school I stayed around the same and maybe dropped one or two MPH. In my freshman year in college I dropped to 84-85 and now I am at 82-84. What could be the problem? it feels like I'm not throwing the ball hard at all even though I am going full 100%
I don't think it's dead arm because I've had it for over a year and I thought you could work it out.
Our throwing program consists of:
Build up stretch throws
4 minutes working our way to 90 ft
4 minutes at 90 ft
4 minutes to get to 120 ft
2 minutes at 120 ft
Then we work it in from there.
All throws are by moving the feet and using your legs.
I throw harder during a flat ground than I do off the mound. Kinda confused as to what is going on. I have my old throwing arm back with the 90+ velocity but only during a flat ground. Once I hit the mound I am back in the low 80s.
