    Best of luck. Hope it's just a simple stain. No greater stress than when a child is hurt.
    A change up should be kept low so that if the hitter does time it, they have to make the secondary adjustment of going down to hit the ball also. 2 movements in the hitter doubles their chance of a bad swing. The combo of being able to read the pitcher's change up early and doing a backflip to keep it up in the zone is a deadly combo. - Bill Hillhouse

    I know these tournaments seem important now, but in the end do you want her to pitch in a couple of meaningless fall tournaments or continue on to high school and/or college?

    I donít blame you because I felt the same way when DD injured her hip. Initially the doctor said it was probably a pulled hamstring. Said she could do some stretching and stop pitching if the pain got too bad. DD said it was bothering her pretty bad, but fall state was coming up so I encouraged her to do what she could. After the game we took her to the ortho and she was dangerously close to never playing and possibly never walking again. As it was she was in a wheel chair and crutches for 6 months and full recovery took about a year. She still has the pin in her hip.

    Note to parents who think their DDís need to pitch every inning at 10U or 12U or theyíll fall behind; DD didnít pitch a year of 10U due to idiot coaches and almost a year 12ís due to an idiot Father. All the drama that felt like the end of the world at that age had zero effect by 14U.
    Relax and enjoy the ride

    Luckily.....this happened last game of our season, during 3rd inning she was told to warm up....she went into an area posted no warmups...

    She also landed on her elbow and got a stinger and was saying that was hurting more than her knee at that moment...a little bit of shock.

    She is a Righty pitcher and this was her Left Knee.

    4 weeks ago and still discomfort...but she can throw stationary.....and definitely her drop ball puts the most strain on the knee.

    Our season is over and better now than the beginning of the season....

    Happy New Years!!

    DD can throw stationary as long as no discomfort.

    No practice with Team where they run them like dogs....

    She will show up to Team practice and do what ever...sit ups, pus ups , No aggressive drills till till after the First of January and we will see go slow and see how she if feeling by then.

    Dr says only time and rest can make this heal correctly.

    So that being said, her Pitching Coach is working with us and now we are taking the time for drills on location, location, location!!!

    UPDATE on daughter's knee.

    First of all, thank you all for your responses. I appreciate this board more and more with all the caring advice you all offer. I wanted to let you all know that my daughter had her MRI yesterday. Results came back today and the knee is perfect. No tears, strains, bruises, tendonitis, - 100% clear! Going to have her check it out today and see if the "giving out" happens any more. Will go slow, for sure and will focus on her mechanics. Will update later.

    Have a nice afternoon!
