We’re taking a different approach for the 7th installment of the CSP Elite Baseball Development Podcast. Today, Cressey Sports Performance – MA pitching coordinator Christian Wonders and I collaborate to discuss when and how kids should learn to throw breaking balls.

In this discussion, we discuss the research behind breaking balls in young pitchers, and how better technology and research methods have updated misconceptions from the early 2000s. And, just as important, we share strategies coaches and parents can employ to help up-and-coming pitchers learn to throw breaking balls safely and in the right developmental sequences.
