I've been reading here for several months, great information. This is my first post.
My son is a junior, but a young junior. He just turned 16, had he been 30 days younger he'd be a sophomore. He's been pitching for as long as he's been playing baseball, very accurate and successful but not impressive speed. He went to a D1 college camp over the summer and you know how kids are, they don't tell you everything, it comes out later. The pitching coach discussed stride length at the end of the session and mention that my son had the shortest length, but said "it'll come". I just heard this in the last week, but its the second knowledgeable baseball person I heard saying it, very matter of factly. He's a big kid at 6'4" 225, naturally muscular, but doesn't throw as fast as you might expect. Is there a natural evolution into a longer stride, likely delayed for him because he doesn't stop growing? Or should he be pushing himself for a longer stride?
Thanks in advance!
