i recently watched a 12 year old all star game and the kids were throwing about 40-50% Curveballs. This is getting ridiculous. Little league puts pitch counts on on stupid amounts of pitches like 40 and 95 per game but they dont ban curveballs or limit them its getting out of control. I am going to pitch college ball next year and i throw 90% fastball and change up and i have plenty of success. Kids need to learn to locate the fastball and change then move to the curve. Half these kids curveball just hang and spin. When i hit, if a guy has a good curve but cant locate his fastball all i do is dont swing at the curve and hammer the fastball but when a guy locates his fastball and change its really hard to hit him.
I am going to coach a 12 or 13 under travel team there will be limits of probably 10 curves per game.
