FWIW, these are GREAT coaches who really care about their players. This is a perfect option for players right before they head off to college.

Re: 12U: MS *AND* AAU baseball?

I guess everyone is too busy watching football. My take is that your husband is right. Playing on two teams in the same season is a prescription for burnout and/or arm abuse, even without pitching. And a 12 with a "history of arm issues" should be a particular red flag.

12U: MS *AND* AAU baseball?

Fan2024 ·
Hi all, We moved states before the 2016-2017 school year (from PA to NJ). In the process, my son started playing AAU baseball with a top travel program near us and stopped playing town ball. This year, as a 12U/6th grader, he is eligible to play for his small private school's MS baseball team. The question is this: will playing both MS and AAU baseball this spring be bad for my child? Any advice/pros/cons others have to offer would be useful. Husband is worried that both will be too much...

what was the diagnosis from 10u elbow issues? Little league elbow? If he's not pitching I don't see an issue playing for both teams if wanted too. We never played for middle school as we found the competition was not very good and they did want him to pitch which I didn't want him to do for 2 different teams.

Thanks for the input - Gooseegg, I'm thinking the school team is similar to your son's. It's a very small school, and the level isn't very high. If son wants to do both, I don't think it would hurt him - in my head, it would be extra reps in the outfield. My husband is more worried about his arm, even just from throwing in practice. I agree with you about academics - son has done very well so far, but the 16-20 hours of sports a week this winter (MS basketball + winter baseball workouts) has...

We definitely worry about overuse. Im not so worried about his arm being strong enough for 60-90. Although we're not currently seeing the PT, i can imagine he'd probably remind us that playing on multiple teams is a risk factor for arm injury.

My son played MS baseball which was really low end (rec ball level or below) but stocked with his school friends and Youth baseball - simultaneously. MS baseball was truly developmental with pitchers throwing at most 3 innings per week. Between the two, there were lots of practices - but no bullpens (the thought was the weekly throwing was done with private coaches). So, it was lots of baseball at a fairly young age - burnout ages for many of his peers. Yes, it could be too much for some...

"too much throwing for a kid with a history of arm issues" That stopped me in my tracks, and there's your answer. He's going to be jumping to 60/90 shortly, and his arm needs to be strong enough to handle that. What does your PT say about it?

I was about to suggest he shouldn’t pitch for his travel team until the middle school season is over. Then I saw “history of arm problems.” A 12yo shouldnt have a history of arm problems. He should only play for school until it’s over. Then play for his summer team. No one ever made high school, college or pro ball based on what they did as a 12yo. The journey is a marathon. It’s not a sprint. Pace yourself. When he gets to high school pick up the pace. I’m going to guess your son plays for...

little league elbow could be completely healed by now, probably a overuse and was growing. sometimes its bad luck. I wouldn't call it a history of arm problems necessarily. my son had an elbow strain at 10 and we chalked it up to not warming up properly and playing a game in very cold weather. Once it healed he has not had anything since, no pain whatsoever and is never sore after pitching. He is 15 now and throws pretty hard for his age.

Gunner34, Yes, son plays for a team like Arsenal. We know the chances of staying on the top team decrease every year - we know he may hate baseball next year (or the year after.. ). I agree - enjoy the moment. I teach HS so I'll be able to watch "my" kids play every spring, even if my son doesn't. And yes, kiddo may not really have arm problems. We're being very cautious, and trying to make sure his regular throwing mechanics are solid before considering pitching. He doesn't need to pitch.
