another summer team talked my son into playing for them


Monday & Thursday, he's green & grey uniform

Saturday & Sunday, he's red & white uniform

he couldn't be happier

both teams he rotates positions, short stop, pitcher, first base, center field.

Sweet Moves Milk.


Get him to turn that non-throwing hand over and think "pull" with it and he should pick up a little more velocity. Right now it is getting in the way.

Or you can just cheer and be a proud pop.

he attends camps hosted by the High School Boy's coach


and his coaches pitched for Philadelphia Phillies/Seattle Mariners and Atlanta Braves/ New York Mets....didn't go very far, but they came home and raised families

Milk,

In the first set of pic you son is getting the ball out of his glove late. When his knee is at the top and he starts to the plate the ball should already be out. You can tell in the rest of the picks his arm is trying to play catch up, his back foot is off the rubber/ground and the ball is still behind is head losing power and causes the ball to be flat and up in the zone... If he gets the ball out sooner it will catch up to his body and give more power and get him on top of the ball witch will let him through down hill. He is doing a great job of controlling his finish and getting his body into a fielding position and keeping his head up after the pitch.

I attached a pic of Roger Clemens his back foot just came up as he released the ball, and notice his glove hand pull back in to his body just like you son has been working on....Keep up the good work....Baseball was/is my life too!!!

In this pic, it shows John Lackey getting the ball out of his glove when his knee is at the top and before he starts to the plate...

thanks for the tips.....

we do have a problem with "getting rushed"

we've explained to him over and over, when he's pitching, he controls the game

they're waiting on him!

It's a fine line between keeping a good game tempo and rushing the game...

It's vary important to get in to a rhythm so you can repeat pitches and keep your defense in the game.

Keep up the hard work and it will pay off
