    yeah that's a good philosophy strength and speed can only help with time growing into her body. Again she is the smallest pitcher on the team which goes hand-in-hand with speed and strength. Yes long toss with intent will be big positive this offseason. Thanks for all the info

    Again actual game speed is only 44 -46 she never throws as hard as she does when we're just messing around. also maybe when we start to grow a little might get a little stronger.

    No hand shake, No apology needed?!

    Really have not seen much change coaches still hand shaking before game last weekend. However you may feel its your option to do as you feel comfortable.

    At what point do you, or you DD decide that she's not going to make it as a pitcher?

    At 10 she still has plenty of room to grow get stronger faster she may blossom into a great pitcher. I would let her decide if its still fun to her let her stick it out a couple more years. What is her speed at 10?
