The MOST Important Thing To Do Between Pitching Starts

July 4, 2014

(Click here for a 1-page .pdf of this newsletter)

After the school baseball season ended, several of my pitching students started reporting arm soreness after pitching for their weekend tournament teams that they did NOT have during the school year.

Why the pain all of a sudden?

Because they stopped throwing on a daily basis during the week.

The danger of pitching for tournament teams is the lack of team practice during the week, turning the pitchers into 'Weekend Warriors'.

Not throwing enough between starts leads to a loss of timing
, increasing arm stress/soreness and risk of injury.

If you have a choice between a bullpen session and long toss, I STRONGLY prefer long toss.

Throw more. Pitch less.
