    Sorry couldn't help myself
    Will there be a day when a kid sues his parents for not providing him with the right genetics and innate ability?

      Very good point coach.

      My son has been working at this for over 3 years now (he's 17) and is still working on things. I imagine he will for his entire baseball career (how ever far he chooses to go).

      There is always something to improve and develop.

      I realize it's human nature to want "everything right now" (especially in today's society), heck...my son is the same way. But one has to realize that skill development and ability do not just happen. It takes A TON OF WORK and many many hours of blood sweat and tears to achieve certain goals!!

      And when they do "finally happen", you must be constantly vigil on maintaining that "razors edge" of your ability or you will backslide.

      Anyways.....good point.

      Carry on.

        I am sorry I don't. I know it is emphasized at his throwing camps and that he has been pushing his long toss routine since 1997. We have followed the Jaeger routine over 4 years. According to Jaeger if you can throw 300 feet, then your velocity is from 85 mph to high eighties. My son easily throws 300 feet.

            My dada was a physicist - I'd rather have those genes.

                You need to talk to your doctor, trainer to at least show you where to hook you up. Come on be serious about your health get on a good rehab program.

                But if you want to listen to: The PHD Of Love just put them on to what and where it give you the most relief.

                    I do read all of your responses, all of them lol. and we do warm up, we run 2 poles, due a dynamic warmup which includes, high knees, butt kicks, shuffles, karaoke, lunges, and what not

                    then we stretch then throw.

                      Are you sure?

                      I am a low level amatuer adult player and can throw the ball on a good day about 275 feet with some arc to it.

                      Is that a 300 foot throw on a line?

                      Cause no way in hell I throw over 60mph on flat ground or off a mound on a good day. Never been gunned.

                        I believe what Jake/Baseball Love say about long toss velocities. I doubt you throw 275 with "some" arc.

                          I've thrown that far as a 8th grader... with an arc though...

                            Your son is 15 right? There's no way he throws that hard without you knowing his exact velocity. He should be the ace on varsity. Do you claim that he does this without arc in the throw at all?

                              I do not think the on long toss can covert to the mound at all. Most people throw harder in long toss then they do on the mound so it's not a good way to track mph.

                                Of course it can convert. If you can throw X feet during long toss, you are able to throw faster than the person who throws less than X feet in long toss. Whether or not you are efficient enough on the mound to do it is another question.
