Stuff like this truely is interesting. Huskie18, you definitely have some plus velocity, you should post a video some time, not often we get to see 90 outside of a professional game. A good example I think of what I’ve been trying to find with this thread is some one like Dylan Bundy (if you haven’t heard of him, you will) he’s 6’1 like me, but throws 94-96 and has touched 100. He’s 200 pounds however, I’m 155 soaking wet.
I think a big velocity booster that some people (myself included) may forget about is muscle mass. For a while I believed it was all about mechanics*. People would say, “look at lincecum, 5’10 throwing 100”, but one thing you forget is he’s around 180 pounds. That is extremely solid for 5’10. Mass is directly related to force, f=ma. So if you can increase mass and have solid acceleration with it, you can gain some good velo. I also read that Verlander was 175 out of highschool throwing 92, up to 200 his freshman year, throwing 99.
So the weight room and leg mass and muscle and mechanics… its all good stuff, so when i started the thread it wasn’t necessarily to prove that weight had an effect but maybe to see if it did. The thing is, it needs to be muscle, and not chocolate bars
*Trust me, I know, mechanics are extremely important. :lol:
