A crow hop in fast pitch softball is when the pitcher basically hops off the mound while shes pitching. She literally jumps, bringing both feet off of the ground. Which is ILLEGAL in softball. in order for her footing to be legal during a pitch, if she is right handed, her right toe should drag the ground. the left foot can come off the ground as much as it can, but not the right one. hope this helps

How fast should a 13 year old pitch?

I coach a 13U traveling team made up of the best 12 and 13 year olds in the city of 1.2M where I live. The first thing you have to do when it comes to pitching speed is distinguish between "crow hop" speed and "live batter" speed. Crow hop is taking a few steps and launching the ball with maximum velocity, but without much regard for location control. The best 12 year old I coached could hit 70mph on crow hop, and I expect he'll be closer to 80mph when he's about to turn 14 years of age. No one throws that fast when pitching against a live batter, either in a game situation or in pens, because you need control to ensure you are efective in getting batters out. So, the 12 year old who crow hops 70mph will hit 63-65 mph with decent control in games. I expect when he's 13 he'll pitch with control in the low-mid 70s. This kid is tall and skinny, very dedicated to the sport, and has a competitive streak second to none. If he keeps it up, and avoids injury, he's solid college material.
