It depends which way he is throwing the ball. If he is twisting his wrist he could hurt his elbow and end up seriously injured. Only adults should twist their wrist when throwing a curve ball. There is a way to throw a curve ball without hurting your arm though. What you do is you get your grip on the Baseball and throw the ball like a football. I throw my curves this way and they are pretty nasty.
Pitching a fast ball at 69 mph will not harm a 13 year old. A 13 year old should not be allowed to pitch a curve ball or any other pitch that may hurt his pitching arm. Curve balls should never be pitched by any boy under the age of 16.
Before the age of 16, a boy's arms do not have enough calcium in them to keep them from deforming from the stresses of throwing a curve ball. To be on the safe side, as well as to give enough time prepare for either a college or pro team, the junior year of high school would probably be the earliest time to allow it.
12 year olds shouldn't throw curve balls. Too hard on the elbow. Stick to the change up. Palm the ball, use the same arm angle and wait until after puberty for throwing junk. If you can teach him the knuckle ball, that might be useful.
they can throw one maybe 3 times a game but not for every batter
No it will hurt your arm little buddy
Yes. However this is not the main determining factor. The easiest answer is that one should throw the heaviest ball that is easy for them to swing while maintaining control. That may be a 14 pound ball instead of a 16 pound. The difference the weight would make in this case is marginal. The main difference would be in the revolution/rotation of the ball as well as speed/accuracy where it is contacts the pocket.Obviously my eight year old throwing a six pound ball is going to knock down fewer pins than i am throwing a 16 pound ball. However if thrown accurately, I can knock down most to all of the pins pretty consistently throwing the six pound bowl myself.
It depend on your dog, but games like fetch are always popular. You just have to teach them it first which can be done by throwing the ball or what ever it is your throwing and then call them back (with food in your hand as a reward) then when they bring it back give them the treat and repeat the process until you don't have to give the dog food anymore and it retrieves the ball. Then i recommend getting a ball throwing arm and going to a park and it is very fun to play fetch with them there
any spped, the faster/accurate it is the better u are at throwing.
should be around 2ft in lenght
Pitcher for Team Gwinnett, Brian Jarrell, is the hardest throwing 14 year old.
I believe they should be playing with a size 5 ball
It's normal and ok.
