Every player is different and has different needs to throw harder. We focus on weight training, mechanics, band work, weighted balls, and plyo balls. All of which will help increase a pitcher's velocity.
"Unless you're already at the professional level, velocity is what matters for continuing your career." – Ben Brewster, pitcher - Chicago White Sox organization
"If you want to pitch in college, then you need to spot a good fastball (87-90+ mph)" – D1 college pitching coach
Why they are not recruiting you? You do not throw hard enough. College coaches are looking for pitchers who have velocity. Pro Level: 90-92 mph Division 1: 89-91 mph Division 2: 85-87 mph NAIA:85-86 mph Division 3: 83-85 mph Juco: 81-85 mph High School: 78-81 mph
"You can't be a 5 tool player if you don't have a strong arm." - MLB Scout
"Nothing is better then seeing a player throw a bullet across the diamond. Arm strength is the first thing I look for when recruiting." - D1 College Recruiting Coordinator
