Little league is important at 12. Use your older kids to pitch more!!

Maybe you shouldn't have taken any kid playing LL and instead taken an 8th grader. That's the problem with 13 year olds still being eligible for LL as they are already in the middle school.

sorry mod coach, you really shoulnt rely on 12 year olds. Maybe you cut the wrong kids from team? Or not doing your job developing new pitchers?

I agree that pitching on modified should be left to the 8th grade, 13 year old players rather than 7th grade twelve year old players unless it has been worked out that the player will absolutely not pitch in little league.

Well, dont know if the guy is really a coach, but I was a modified coach for 12 years and at my town, we did NOT ALLOW those kids in little league to pitch. Wasnt so much we needed them to pitch in modified, but it did have an effect on their arm in other aspects, fielding etc. Talking about 12 yrs old now.

In my experience, I do agree, more 8th graders (13 yr olds) should pitch more, but it all depends on the talent of the 7th graders.

Also, as I have seen through the years, for all the 7th graders that get cut from modified (there are lots), dont give up, because if you are talented, you will be on it in 8th grade, so keep playing ball. Its just that there are so many 7th graders trying out every year, 80% of them get cut.

Oh please..There is no talent involved with the decision of who will pitch. It's all politics and who knows who. If you are in good with the coach then you kid will probably either be in a perm position or pitch. Most of the time the kids that are chosen suck and cant throw the ball for sh&%! If the coach happens to be a players dad then forget about it they never sit out an inning. So glad I am all done with that!

as for all the complainers about little league, do you volunteer your time to try and teach the kids the rules of the game and practicing many hours with kids who are not your own? the countless hours of thankless time from parents who do not know the rules of little league.. the coaches kid makes the team regardless.. in our little league the kids who have been on the team the longest play more innings then the new players.. all kids are required to play so many outs in a game.. maybe those of you who complain should actually volunteer your time and coach your child and others.. you have to put up with not only the children but the parents also..

What does any of this matter? Most of these kids are going to be correction officers in prison land if you look at the stats. Priorities egotistical people, priorities.
