Baseball Season is less than 2 weeks away… ARE YOU READY?

Hopefully you have been throwing for at least a few weeks by now.

If you haven’t, Please take it slow, don’t ruin your whole career before it even gets started.

Now you finally get to throw some game speed pitches.  Try to throw  on Mondays and Fridays.

If you don’t feel like you have fully recovered on the Monday of week 8 just push back the bullpen until Tuesday and throw a bullpen every fourth day until the season starts.

Once the season starts the bullpens should be based on Your role and the Coach’s rotation.
