2A Region III Baseball in High School Sports Posted March 21, 2018 3 minutes ago, playactionpass39 said: Not questioning anything, definitely not a kids talent or abilities. Just saying no legitimate coach is telling ANY baseball player to take 5 months off from throwing. There has to be care and maintenance built into any throwing program, so short breaks are always going to be encouraged. LONG breaks from throwing are just as detrimental, if not more so, than not taking a break. Definitely "more than one way to skin a cat" but I'm only questioning taking LONG breaks from throwing then jumping right into competitive PITCHING. Throwing two days a week during the off-season on a regimented throwing program is simply maintaining. 2 days a week in the off season is my preferred choice when asked my opinion on throwing. However, my head coach will tell a high school coach to shut down a guy in a heart beat. Like I said, every arm only has so many bullets.
