    Change-up Help

    DD is a first year 16U, and we've run through quite a few different change-ups. First was a horseshoe, then over the winter one year she just totally lost the feel for that one. Second was a knuckle change, that worked for one year but was just OK, so decided to look for something better...

    How long should it take?~

    For my DD she struggled to throw strikes at 10U, but the moment she moved to 12U and started using the bigger ball and throwing at 40' it was like magic. Her strike percentage increased dramatically. She was (and still is) a tall girl with big hands, so moving to the 12" ball was a much better...

    Tips for getting pitcher over mental hurdle of behing hit by batted balls

    Before her second game last night we talked about going inside and up with her fastball, so if she doesn't have a feel for where to go....go up and in by default. As she seemed to get more comfortable in the circle as the game went along, then started mixing speeds. Will keep working on that...

    Tips for getting pitcher over mental hurdle of behing hit by batted balls

    She does wear a mask in all games. I'm picking up a chest protector shirt this morning for her to try. I did get a lesson setup with her pitching coach today, her coach was a D-1 All-American for Minnesota so hopefully she can share some words of wisdom too.

    Tips for getting pitcher over mental hurdle of behing hit by batted balls

    My DD is a second year 14U pitcher. She started off the season throwing really well, but in a scrimmage she took a line drive off her glove hand wrist. Thankfully no broken bones, but it was sore for a few days. Then not long after that she took a line drive right off the belly button. (for...
