Pitching Mechanics For The Youth, It is vitally important that youth pitchers understand the fundamentals of proper pitching mechanics. Proper mechanics are essential for velocity generation, pitch accuracy, and overall arm health. Unfortunately, many youth pitchers are taught incorrectly at an early age and subsequently end up having arm complication down the road.
Youth Throwing Drills the most basic of all youth baseball drills, and many instructors feel that it is the most important fundamental of all. It is vital for parents to make sure that their children develop proper throwing techniques from the time they can throw a baseball, around the age of eight or so. The importance of throwing a baseball with proper grip can not be overestimated. Youth throwing drills must emphasize four important elements: Throw the ball by gripping it with the index finger and middle finger on the ball; point your shoulder opposite from your throwing hand in the direction of your target; step in the direction of your target when you release the ball; and follow through after you release the ball with your back leg so that both legs are parallel upon the completion of the throw.
