I am new to posting here, so be gentle.
I am a father of twin 8 yr olds. Next season they will be moving up to 10U
fast pitch, if you can call 10U fast pitch, but nevertheless. One wants to
be a pitcher, and the other a catcher. Problem is is that they are fairly
new to the sport. Amber started fallball last go round and Chandice started
playing this season. To make a long story short, Chandice wants to be the
pitcher and you can figure out the rest. I have a strong feeling we'll
probably wind up finding a pitching coach for Chandice, but I would like to
help her along before then. I was wondering if there are any drills or
things I should be looking for in her evolution into the ace pitcher she
wants to be. Granted at the moment she has a weak arm and bat, but those
things can be fixed with time. I know she'll probably won't be a pitcher
next season, maybe not at the start but that's why I want to start working
with her now. Amber has a strong bat, but somewhat weak arm, but with both,
what is expected for first time players. One question is, is catching the
same in softball as in baseball, I would assume so since the whole objective
is to catch the ball. I have a feeling that Amber will make a strong
catcher with time.
Another question is on batting, any techniques you know of for a batter not
watching the ball as it comes to the plate?
Thanks in advance
