Game Day Pitching Routine

FrankJP ·
Hello, My son(2020), age 14 this past March, is playing 14u this season and this is his first year where he will be a starting pitcher. He started playing baseball at age 10 through local in-house leagues, joined a "travel" team at age 13, that was a slight step above. He has pitched some over the years, but never more than an inning here or there, sometimes two, nothing consistent. I'd say he has likely not pitched more than 20 innings in one season, and that was age 12 I believe. He has a...

It's a difficult angle to see much detail. For the most part, the mechanics look good to me. However though, in your wind up you get in a good position on the back side, but it doesn't look like you're getting the "separation" you should (the angular difference between the alignment of your hips and the alignment of your shoulders) when you take your stride forward. And from the camera angle, this looks to be because the way you're using your left leg when you bring it down into an almost...

This was 4 years ago, but I don't think it has changed much. Pitchers tryout in the bull pens with coaches watching. There are around 8 mounds in a row that the coaches are watching. There will be a primary coach with a gun at each mound grading the pitchers. You basically have to be in the top 50% to be selected for the game based on the numbers. They are not pre-selected as kids are coming from all over the country and so are the coaches so I am not sure how they could do this. You should...

Have them both relax and have fun. Just being on the tryout list will help them.

College coaches (and HS coaches) are very important in the scouting process. Coaches will keep the area scouts up to speed on what the coaches think are pro-potential players. (Of course, if the coach cries wolf, they lose the trust of the area scout.) Scouting is a winnowing (filtering) and ranking process. While scouts are actively scouting during the fall and spring pre-season, we are now in the part of the season where the area scout (and his unpaid associate scouts) runs around watching...

Thanks for the info. The conversation came up because one of the pitchers On the team had lots of scouts last year at games. He didn't have a great season and wasn't drafted. However this season is pitching really well and there has only been one scout filming him. May be just early in the season ? He is lhp throwing mid 90's.

My son is a college pitcher and they have about a 45 minutes warm up for the starters. This includes; First - Stretching. Hips, legs, back, core first, then arms (both) with bands. Light tossing from about 20-25 feet away, building up velocity. before he takes the mound, he is "pitching" from flat ground to a catcher. Then finally to the mound where it is 10 minutes or so (I have never timed how much on the mound but that seemed about right - I do know the whole thing is about 45 minutes...

My son was a starter and reliever in HS (also played SS). He started this college season as a reliever but now is starting some. I haven't seen his routine at college....but his HS routine was something like this: I'll assume home game where they got to the field an hour or so before game time. This may not be "textbook", but it worked for him -Stretch a little...jog a bit...and generally goof off for about 15 minutes -Throw with a partner....starting at 10 yds or so and progressing up to...

Normal stretch routine with teammates. If you are not familiar with Jaeger's band routine, check into that. A light version of the band routine works for many P's prior to a start. When doing warm up tosses, get some light flat ground to get rhythm and feel for all grips. Time your actual pen warm up based on game start time and home or visitor. I think 10-15 minutes before you will take the game mound is good. Be sure to work from wind and stretch and get reps on all pitches. Be very...

NTGson is 2016 (LHP going D1 next fall). I don't know his routine on-field. I do know that the advice given us, his parents, 7 years ago by a wonderfully grizzled coach who works with him: "Don't talk to the boy 'bout pitching tonight. Make sure he knows you love him, that you will be there to see him on the mound and wish him luck. Anythin' else just clutters his brain up." That's been tough for me as a 'wannabe' coach, but it has worked since he first took the mound as an 11 year old. His...

I'll tell you how I warmed up from little league through high school and beyond. 1) Arrive at field 15 or so minutes before the game. 2) Coach throws a dozen balls on the ground from a bag. They MUST be brown and scuffed. This, I think, must be important, for they were always this way. 3) Coach commands the team to pick up said balls and "Warm up." 4) Either you or a partner picks up the ball ,and you get back about as far away as the pitcher's mound (60 feet or so. If little league, 45 feet...

Question, will your son be a pitcher only? JMO but the coach should be helping your son to develop a routine, unless he has no clue what a 14 year old should be doing. Keep it simple. You dont want to burn out before he pitches. Run poles until he breaks into a sweat, this tells you are warmed up. With rest of team, throwing warm ups with partner. Bullpen to practice pitches. Set on a specific number amount depending on how many pitches he has. At his age he only needs 2-3 pitches. His...

Son is a 2016 headed to a D1 as a PO. Has had a pretty solid routine for a few years now...Good to get in that habit. I find that most HS pitchers DON'T warm up enough!!! They do some light stretching, toss and then head to the pen. Not enough IMO. My son will do the following, which will remind those who are into this stuff of what Trevor Bauer does prior to starts. My son is definitely a throw more (not pitch, but throw) kind of kid. It has worked for him and kept him healthy and strong...

Hi, Thank you, appreciate the time for a reply. Just to be clear, the coach will be helping to develop a routine, but the coach has asked him to develop something initially on his own. They will then review, discuss, and tweak it together. It's part of the coach wanting him to take ownership of what he's doing, as they do spend a lot of time reviewing warmups, armcare, etc. He will not be a pitcher only, but he will be one of the primary pitchers, was told he would usually be starting on a...

Thank you, he seems pretty excited about it. I figured I would be able to get some good advice/guidance here, and appears to be the case so far. I do know that while he is being planned as a starter, he will of course relieve when needed. So, he needs to develop a plan for starting, and what he will do when asked to be a reliever. Let me also add, from the other post, that the coach will work with him, and does understand what's needed, but wants the kids to have some control and understand...

Thank you, appreciate your advice. His initial plan looks something like what you have, some dynamic warm up exercises/stretches(hip, spine, etc) then some arm care work like the shoulder tube, tubing or bands, wrist weights, and then bullpen. He has done some long toss going for the first couple of games, but not extreme. For post game, he has just listed so far a couple of arm care exercises(tubing, wrist weights, shoulder tube, etc).

2) Coach throws a dozen balls on the ground from a bag. They MUST be brown and scuffed. This, I think, must be important, for they were always this way. Make sure you pick out a few and test their weights. You don't want one of the light ones - you want one that was previously waterlogged so as to give it some weight - sounds better when it hits the glove. Allows you to reach #6 (pain) that much quicker. On a serious note, I saw one person recommend running poles with another saying only...

Yes, There is a debate about long distance vs sprints but the research and evidence leans very heavily towards NOT running long distances. I would just suggest everyone look online at lots of resources ranging from Wolforth, Driveline, Eric Cressey, etc. All strongly suggest that poles are one of the worst possible things you can have pitchers do. Works all of the wrong muscle groups. Shortens stride length and the whole lactic acid flush is a myth. Just look at any pic of a long distance...

THE ROVER - Don't get me wrong - I come down on the side of sprints as it relates to conditioning and possibly post-game activity. I'm just thinking about a pitching outing up North in March - maybe 40-45 degrees when the player sets foot on the field. Not real sure sprints are something to incorporate into one's warm-up. Maybe in May down south when it's already 90 degrees and everything is already pretty loose, but I would not recommend any type of full blown sprint until after everything...

May not be in this case but often it is the team's fault and not the organizer. I speak from personal experience. After being told that my sons team was going to Atlanta to play in the big tourney, I came to find out that they didn't sign up in time, etc, etc. turned out fine for us as we were able to get hooked with another team but not so fine for others.
