How To Protect Young Pitchers
I was recently asked to list 3 things that I think would help to protect the arms of young pitchers. I thought y'all would be interested in this list.
1. No tournaments. No fall ball.
Never pitch on less than 5 (or better yet 7) days of rest. Limit
pitches thrown in an outing (e.g. 10U = 30, 11U = 35, 12U = 40).
Teach everybody on the team how to pitch.
