[quote=“Sunsetblud”]I was always told that 1/3 of the time your stuff will suck, 1/3 of the time your stuff will be average, and 1/3 of the time you will be good. It is all about what you do with what you have that day that makes people great.
As far as velocity, I would say that you should probably be around 70? I am not really sure tho, it has been a while since i have seen 13 year olds play.[/quote]
Okay first power pitcher its okay to be upset about your start no need to worry though because if you are good you will bounce back quickly and be back on top.
A few quotes that i underlined though. NO your stuff shouldn’t be 1/3 suck, 1/3 average, 1/3 good. That is not true. You get what you put into it. If you practice hard every day and have a good 5 days routine. (Like weightlifting, long toss, bullpens, rubber band tubing, core workout, back workouts.) and mechanics refinement. Then you should be good all the time. If you say that you are 1/3 suck, average, good. That means that you are only putting 33 percent effort into being good which is dumb. You should put 100 percent into being good.
LOLL a 13 year old throwing 70mph. LOL. Somebody sign that kid up. No i would say the average would probaly be 55-60mph with good control. I was an absolute beast on my team with my over powering fastball. I was 15 throwing 75mph average and i hit 79mph a few times. So ya i would say that 70mph is not average. 55-60mph is average.
Anyways just keep up the good work.
Sunset blud didn’t mean to insult you or anything just trying to help power pitcher out a bit.
