I was interested in the differential between fielding and throwing errors at u14 and under because it shows a a gap in skill teaching. In this area there seems to be a total reliance on arm strength v. proper technique. It seems as though I am always hearing that so and so has a cannon for an arm. So I go to see them play and they do have a strong arm but because of poor footwork, changing hands break, or not fielding through the ball, the throws are still directionally challenged. Now it's obviously not every throw, but it's enough.
