    Default 6 pitch 10u

    Yes, you heard it right, just heard a 10u mom say, "You have six pitches, that is enough."

    What's her 6th pitch? The single ball, the double ball, the triple ball, the home run ball and the hit by pitch ball. I can only come up with 5.

    At that age I'd be happy with one pitch. The get it over the plate pitch!

    2nd year 12U and DD has lost the pitches she learned in 10U anyway. She could throw (in games, effectively) 2 movement pitches in addition to a FB and change, by the end of 2nd year 10U. Now, after an injury and major growth spurt, she has half of one pitch (fastball) and is in the process of relearning basically everything. I miss being that 10U mom. lol

    Technically a ball is a pitch

    The one that rolls along the ground and the one that goes over the backstop.

    I bet they have a “Queen of the Hill”!!

    Pitching is too easy so she will probably have to quit in 2 yrs...

    Well you get to 3-2 in the count and that sixth pitch is often the last one. I agree, 6 pitches is enough.
