My DD a very young first year 12U player (a 2025 who turns 11 in two weeks) pitched this weekend against an all 2nd year older 12u team. Her team got killed, but what really made me proud was speaking with a parent from the other team. He singled out my DD (without knowing that she was my DD) from all the other pitchers who pitched. He said he was really impressed with how she made her ball spin and commented that when she learns to use her legs more her pitches are really going to break and she was going to be a good one. We've been really focusing on spins the past few months and her velocity hasn't increased (she's been trying to hit 50 mph for about 4 months now) so she was getting a bit frustrated.
