My 2021 hasnt thrown (until this week) since 7/16. He's not a starting pitcher but does throw inning's here and there. That stretch of downtime was hard for him and is itching to get back on the field. We spent that time being a kid of course but also on the bigger/faster/stronger. He managed to put on 6 pounds during that time that he drastically needed. His HS has a fall team in which he can make 6 of the 15 games, his commitment is with his TB team which is about 8-10 games and 3-4 tourneys for Sep and Oct. We dont throw from Nov-late Jan early Feb. We dont do any baseball Nov-Dec and start hitting in Jan so fall works for us.
