> The fastest 12 yr olds at the LLWS are in the high 70's. But they may get faster speeds starting next year with the birth date change going into effect. The teams at the LLWS will have a lot of 13 yr olds starting next year. This will put us in a better competitive situation vs. non-American teams who've done this already. The sad thing is that 11, 12 and 13 yr olds should be playing on transitional fields (i.e. 48-50 foot rubbers and 65-70 ft bases) and not the 46/60 fields LL uses. It's completely moronic that LL hasn't changed the field sizes at some point over the years.

hi i'm 12 years old and hit 70 mph-not 69 not 71- 70. Is 92 mph in the MLB good? That's what seems to be the equivelent to 70.
Also, I want to know how to make my 2 seamer sink.
