How I Got Started:
About 3 years ago I decided to get back into baseball after I stopped playing just before the start of High School ball. Pitching just comes naturally to me and I love it. However, ever since I hurt my shoulder in Little League I struggled to keep my arm in a comfortable three-quarters which was why I decided not to play in High School. So I decided to throw sidearm for a little while because even prior to hurting my arm it felt natural, even though I always got yelled at for doing it, which is why I, and a lot of other kids didn’t. By the way, if anyone reprimands you for throwing in a way that is comfortable and natural for your shoulder, tell them to bite you (respectfully of course). However, always be coachable and open to suggestions.
