The average speed for a 10 year old is about 44-48. If 51-54 is really good for a 10 year old

My husband and I took my son to a street fair when he was 11 and head pitcher for his little league team. They had a machine there that tested his throwing speed and his speed was 51 mph. The guy said he was above average.

I don't know exactly but I've watched the Little League World Series enough and they always refer to Little Leaguers pitching speed in relation to MLB and I believe that 70 mph Little League would be around 100 mph MLB A 70 mph little league pitch is equivalent to about a 111 mph MLB pitch. (This is calculated based on an average little league pitch at 57.5 mph and an average MLB pitch at 91 mph.)

In general, add aboout 20 mph because you are calculating the different pitching lengths. Little league pitchers throw from 45 feet, major leaguers throw from 60.5 feet. For example, a little league pitcher throwing a 70 mph pitch is equivalent to a major league player throwing about a 90 mph pitch.
