Well I’m here on behalf of my brother, who is too young to register, etc. He’s 11 and an avid pitcher. I’m usually the one to work with him since I love the game, but I stopped playing in little league and never was a pitcher myself. I do my best to work with him, but I’m looking for advice.
He throws 3 different pitches, but only one effectively. His four seam fastball is his main pitch, and he probably throws it 80%+ of the time in a game. Its mostly because at his age, if you throw strikes, then you pitch. His 2 seam is slower, and at times it moves. I guess it naturally breaks away from a lefty since he is a righty. How much should it be moving at his age. He also throws a circle change, but location and speed is sometimes a problem. Even though he is choking back on the ball, there are times when it doesn’t seem that much slower then his 4 seam.
Any advice on what he should be doing would be greatly appreciated.
