it does say he gained 3 mph after returning to long toss !
Santa Clara Colt 15- 16 year olds are on their way to the world series in Indiana ater sweeping regionals and zone with 8 wins 0 losses my son never pitched on the A team all stars at 10-12 and 14 years of age this year he started 2 games pitching 11 innings and he only gave up 4 unearned runs 2 in each game the second game against Chandler AZ 6 innings 1 hit on 2 days rest he pitched the final 2 innings of zone and retired all 6 batters in order The point of this story is through alot of hard work and video tapping and always believing that he could get the job done given the opportunity he did never give up-always work hard-and like Dick says video tape so you can check your mechanics and hopefully good things will happen
I disagree the leg press is about the best exercise their is for the legs and will definitely make you more explosive as an athlete
I live close to san franciso and listen to giant broadcasts. Mike Krukow talked about this on a pregame and said when he first saw him pitch that was his concern Mike said he is so quick and explosive he can get his arm in the proper throwing position.
Dick nailed it Koufax as great as he was pitched from a higher mound. If the height of the mound had not been changed home run totals would never have been what they are today and ba. would be much lower and who knows how many more no-hitters Ryan would have pitched from a higher mound
this was an issue with me after watching the Jaeger video, after alot of thought I have resisted my son plays outfield when not pitching and that is enough long toss just throwing from the outfield in practice and games
I do not know the forum concensus on this but I do not recommend a 12 year old pitching fron 60 feet
