Always a leftie

Jun 29, 2009
Hi All,

My child (10u)has always been a leftie, she bats left but when we started softball (6u) they taught her to throw right because the coach was right handed, she has never had a lot of power throwing right but it never really seemed to be bad either. We recently started pitching lessons and we have found out that when she pitches or throws that her shoulder seperates slightly on the right side. It has been suggested to switch her back to throwing left since this is her dominant side and she does not have a shoulder issue on the left. What is the best way to switch her back to throwing left?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
