How old are you and how fast do you throw?

I am 11 years old. I throw a 77 mph 4 seam fastball. My changeup is about 40 mph.

I have been coaching little league for 10 years and all I can say is "rediculous"....I'd have to see it to believe it. The fastest pitch thrown at the little league world series was around 74 mph by kids who are basically 13 years old. Theres a HUGE difference between the physical attributes of a 13 yr old and an 11 yr old.

Yeah, that is very hard to believe.

I don't think anybody's bigger than the game. We're all very fortunate to wear our uniforms. As baseball players, we owe everything to the game; the game doesn't owe us anything. - Bgo

It really is.. I never really cared how fast I threw when I was playing at your age. All I cared about was getting the outs, (2nd baseman). I'm with the first poster. I would have to see it to believe it.

I wasn't a pitcher, but man I miss playing little league ball. I played centerfeild and I loved it. Now I just play softball with old men.

And BravesFan 22, if you can really pitch like that, it's incredible, I can't even pitch that fast now. I would have to see it to believe it though.

if an11 year old kid was throwing 77 you would most likely hear about it.

Interesting topic...brings me to a question. I am looking at putting a batting cage net and machine in my backyard to practice with my 8 year old son...keep the balls from flying all over and breaking stuff...and make our time practicing more efficient. Here's the questions...the machines I am looking at pitch "real" balls in the 44-45 mph maximum range. I don't know how fast they pitch the ball at his age and how long this machine will be good for...at what age do they start pitching faster than 45mph. I realize we can continue to use the machine to practice the mechanics of his hitting beyond the usefulness fo the speed, but I am just curious. Not wanting to spend thousands of dollars right now, just something we can occupy some time with as the weather is starting to get a bit more friendly up here in the north. Thanks for any input!!

My son plays on a recreational 10u team. Last Sat. they had a scrimmage and one of the coaches had a radar gun. We had 5 players pitch and they ranged in speed from 45 - 56 mph. My son topped out at 54, he turned 10 in Dec. '09.
