Most toddlers toss a ball underhanded; however, the correct way to throw a ball is overhand. This is especially true if your child plans to play toddler baseball in Minneapolis. In order for a child to master the overhand throw, however, they must have spent some time developing strength and balance. There are two things that a toddler needs to be taught if he or she plans to play baseball.
- Build Strength - In order for your toddler to throw a ball overhand, your tot must build up strength in his throwing shoulder and arm.
- Improve Aim - Being able to have the power behind a throw means nothing if your toddler cannot aim the ball and get it to where it needs to go.
Many parents do not have the experience, time or patience to assist their kids from start to finish with learning how to throw a ball overhand, and that's okay. In fact, that's why we have our toddler baseball classes in St Louis Park.
