    That actually seems kind of low to me. I would think that would align more with a freshman and then see sophomore year up to around 87/88.
    I took it to mean that all players, regardless of position, threw 85 as sophs. pitchers would probably be higher, imo.

      And if you want to do distance calculations with a spreadsheet for bats:

      My own son, who is much smaller than average for a 14-year old baseball player at 5' 3", 104 pounds, currently throws around 180 to 190 feet.
      These are interesting results but the OP was addressing the high school girls' softball team that he coaches. He insisted his outfielders could reach home from the warning track.

        It’s 200 feet from the wall to the plate. An outfielder with a good arm should be able to hit the the cutoff man right in the nose which would make the plate on one hop.
