The Official Countdown is on.
High School Baseball season is just a few weeks away.
ARE YOU READY?
The next couple of weeks we are going to keep the same throwing routine as the last couple of weeks, but we are going to start increasing the intensity of the Pitching Mound sessions.
For weeks 5 & 6 you need to start throwing your pitches at 70 to 80 % of full speed.
We are trying to fire back up the muscle memory and the proper mechanics you will need for weeks 7 & 8 when you will start throwing pitches at full speed.
As always be patient, make sure your are properly warming up before you throw and remember you warm up to throw, NOT throw to warm up.
It’s time to start getting serious.
What you do now could be the difference in making the team or getting cut.
