    James ... I hope I'm wrong. But, I'm guessing you're risking doing some serious harm to your arm. Every time you think you're better and throw it hurts again. It sounds like you're not letting an injury heal. There's a point where it's not sucking it up and competing. There's a point where even your coach should understand it's time to shut it down. You shouldn't throw for a while and focus on having your arm ready for summer ball.
    LISTEN to these people! I know it seems urgent to do all you can possibly do RIGHT NOW, but you're in danger of ruining you career before it ever starts.

    I know personal anecdotes are not always convincing-but you need to know that high school ball, especially in the jv years, has limited impact on your future playing.

    My youngest played in a tiny school and NO ONE had any interest in him after he graduated. He is unique-he REFUSED to give up on his dream. He went to Mike Marshall's Pitching Research Center for three years and worked like a fiend. Last summer he had a terrible summer ball experience, came home in July, worked for a couple of weeks, went to a college tryout and got a scholarship.

    The point is this, if you stay healthy you'll have opportunities for years. If you ruin your arm now, you're done.

    Today is March 15th, 2008. Serious injuries do not get resolved in 3 days.
    it felt fine when I warmed up, pitched, threw a bullpen, long tossed no pain at all whatsoever.

    it was good, but I think I tweaked it again, as im typing this my middle, and ring finger tips went numb.

    I pitched 3 innings,

    3 IP, 5BB, 1 k, 7 hits allowed, 7 runs

    very bad

    the other pitched did 3 IP, 2 k', 9 hits, 10 runs.

    Sigh.

    It's sad that your coaches allow you to pitch like this; even sadder if they don't know about it when you lie to them.

    It looks to me to be his typing if he is numbing out posting. You need to have proper posture while typing or you will get caparl tunnel.

    Shut it down and see a sports specialist.

    Why do you think they invented summer and fall ball?

    GoC, choices made out of (a) machismo, (b) ignorance (as to the actual medical condition and to the possible consequences of continued pitching), and (c) the immaturity of high school students are not to be respected unreservedly. That's why you can't drink at your age, or give medical advice.

    Sorry, GoC. I like you and respect a lot of your baseball thinking, but what maturity sometimes gives you is the understanding of what the limits and scope of your knowledge happens to be. You have exceeded your limits. It's like telling a drunk buddy -- "Hey, hang onto your car keys buddy -- if you can't take Highway 17 into Santa Cruz with a .15 blood alcohol level, you're a wimp, dude!" As others have noted, there are a lot of things that many of us can no longer do because we "played through pain".

    Talk to your parents and coach and go see a doctor, James.

    James you need to tell your parents and your coach about this asap. Don't ruin your arm for life. You may not understand it now, but you will later in your life, trust us old guys, your better off resting and healing then pushing it and making it worse.

    I played college volleyball, I played in a grass doubles tourney, I messed up my shoulder so bad during the tourney that I could not even swing at a ball, we put some special cream on it and finished the tourney(WE WON) but I couldn't even turn over in bed that night because my shoulder hurt so bad. I would give that win back any day of the week now. I ended up needing to go under the knife because of it. It pretty much ended any chance I had of playing at a higher level and I still today cannot throw a baseball or play volleyball without my muscles getting messed up. I know its hard to believe your hurt, but at least have it checked out. Your only risking a life long injury, its not just about this season. Trust me on this!!

    OK, I'll respect his very poor decision. I say this as a hint of advice.

    It's his choice... I don't think he realizes that he will never get anywhere without an arm... DH's don't get drafted out of HS.
