MBSC is committed to giving its members development opportunities that exceed those of the most expensive travel-ball organizations. We just completed a throwing velocity program that was run by three physical therapists from PRO Physical Therapy along with Middleton High School coaches.
48 baseball and softball players in 6th thru 12th grade participated. They were each given a pre-program physical and video throwing assessment. The results of these led to prescribed throwing drills and corrective exercises. The throwing programming followed Driveline’s principles and used Plyocare balls and weighted baseballs and softballs. Tools such as Core Velocity Belts and Pocket Radar were used to teach movement and create the proper intent within each throwing session.
The goals of the program were to teach safer throwing mechanics, reduce arm pain, and increase maximum throwing velocity. In the end,
6th thru 8th grade group showed an average gain in velocity of 5.04 mph.
The 9th thru 12th grade group gained an average of 3.8 mph.
47 of 48 participants saw their velocity increase.
Every player showed a reduction in the number of ‘fails’ within the OnBaseU throwing screen.
There was zero reported arm pain in the last week of the program.
6/1 -- FFMP fields 1 & 2 have been deemed unplayable tonight. Coaches will need to make their own call on other fields for tonight.
