Velocity off a mound


#1

does throwing off a mound affect your velocity? if it does by how much?


#2

Throwing off a mound generally has you throwing 2-4 mph harder than if you were pitching off flat ground, it seems to vary from person to person.


#3

It really does vary from person to person… Just on my team there is a huge variance. Our main relief kid throws serious smoke on or off a mound, and one of our other flame throws looks like he’s throwing bad changeups instead of fastballs on the flat ground. Then he steps on the mound it he seems like a whole new kid.
