My nine year old has an amazing overhand throw. One day it is going to come in very handy when she is throwing people out. However, she is really struggling with control when throwing it back to the pitcher. Most of her throws are good but way way too hard for them to catch. She plays both rec and travel. The travel girls do a little better catching from her but even they have literally had their glove knocked off by one of her throws. We have talked to her about it and tried practicing just throwing it back nicely, but when she gets pumped up and excited she let's it rip. Any advice on helping her control her arm when throwing it back would be great. Thanks.
