Took this in the back yard today. Please take a look and let me know what you see. She's had no formal instruction beyond a pitching clinic that she attended a few months ago. She's been pitching seriously for about a month, and so far has pitched in two games. The first game, she pitched two innings, walked the limit in each one. Second game, held them to three runs in the first inning, walked the limit in the second. So she is improving. My assistant coach and I are working with her, but we're novices ourselves.
