Does your son show great potential as a pitcher?

Good morning. If your son has the potential to become a future baseball prospect as a pitcher, there are 3 things that you should consider doing as soon as possible:

1. Finding a one-on-coach for pitching lessons. Many times you already know a well known and respected instructor in your area. Contact your high school coach, he most likely can recommend a couple of instructors. Make arrangements to visit and talk to the instructor about your son's pitching future. If you are comfortable with this instructor, you can set a weekly schedule of pitching lessons. The money spent on quality pitching lesson is money well spent.
2. If your child is under the age of 10, you may consider building your own pitching mound in your backyard. This is an inexpensive way to improve the quality of your backyard pitching workouts. If you can catch your son during pitching workouts, that is best. If not, you may want to purchase a pitching target or toss back trainer as a target for using during pitching practice.
3. Your son needs to build arm strength and power. There are many great device available on the market that build arm strength. Pitching Training and arm strength builders are available at

The Derek Jeter StrikeBack Trainer is a new toss back trainer desig that feature spinning targets that kids love!

Good Luck Till next time!, Nick
