Arm Care

Why Use Weighted Baseballs?

For physically mature athletes, weighted ball training has several benefits including improved mechanics, velocity and command but improved arm fitness is the most obvious.  For 14U and older, the first thing that college scouts evaluate is arm strength and velocity.

If you throw a baseball and you want a stronger, more dynamic and durable arm, then this program is for you.
