I had one of my 13-year old players show me a pitch that I’m not sure what it is called-or if it is harmful to throw at their age.
You basically hold it as if you were making a U with your throwing hand and throw like you would a football. I tried it and it sure looks like a slider, but that’s not how I was taught to hold/throw a slider.
If it is indeed a slider or it’s evil twin-I want to cease in their throwing of it. Unless someone out there can identify it and prove otherwise.
Thanks for your input.
