My First Pitch

Mechanics and drills for beginner baseball pitchers

My First Pitch program is the official introduction to Baseball Canada’s pitching program. This program has been designed specifically for all young baseball players age 9-13 and aims to increase interest in baseball at the Learn to Train stage of development.

My First Pitch Goals

  1. Reduce the number of young athletes with elbow/shoulder injuries by teaching them the proper throwing mechanics.
  2. Provide athletes with the necessary skills to play baseball in order to increase fun.
  3. Prevent coaches and athletes to specialize in one position at this specific age group.
  4. Increase awareness of pitch count and the negative effect of overuse.
  5. Stress the importance that this is the most important stage for the development of baseball specific skills as it is a period of accelerated learning of coordination and fine motor control. It is also a time when children enjoy practicing skills they learn and seeing their own improvement.

Why choose My First Pitch?

  • Introduce topics such as grips, set up on the mound, momentum, stride, landing, release and follow through as well as multiple drills to identify and correct major pitching flaws.
  • Show athletes the proper way of throwing the ball while helping reducing the chances of getting injured in the future.
  • Act as a vehicle to avoid early specialization.

Why should young players participate in the My First Pitch Program?

  • Learn basic throwing skills and mechanics
  • Enjoy the position of a pitcher during a baseball game
  • Learn how to take care of your arm following a game
  • Increase your overall abilities as an athlete
  • Transfer those throwing skills to other complementary sports
