Pitching distance for 12 year olds in organized youth bb is approx 46 ft. I would think there is a better answer for that question. Probably close to the 55-65 mph range?? Impove: As a former pitcher, I learned more and more about pitching as my skills and mind matured. For youth players, it shouldn't really matter how fast a player throws, however if that player has developed control and the ability to change speeds. Yes, 55-65 MPH may be a good bar to set, but keep in mind the pitchers like Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, and Jamie Moyer. None of these guys even on a good day would top 90mph on a fastball. The three gentlemen mentioned have outstanding control, and great ability to change speeds. Velocity is an overrated thing. Hit your spots, throw strikes, and get outs. That equals wins.
