thanks hal... i'll put this one to work tonight at practice. i'll let you know how it works out.
just a quick background on my dd. she is 17 and has pitched for six years. from the get go she could naturally throw very hard. when she was 12 she was probably one of the, if not the, fastest pitchers her age in this area. problem is, it was all natural ability because she had poor instruction and at the time i knew nothing about pitching. well the poor instruction started catching up with her in the last year or so. she still has decent velocity but not much more than what she had when she was 13. i'm looking for ways to get another 5 mph out of her to get her into the same range of the top pitchers that we face every weekend.
physically she has all of the gifts. she's 5'11" and has athletic ability.
