TIPS TO KIDS
Get control first. Don't try to
throw curves until you can put
the ball just where you want it,
any time you want to. Then you
can try for curves. Don't try to
master too many at once. Take
the simple ones first and work up.
Don't overdo things-p-don't
strain your arm by throwing all
day. Talce it easy. Speed is a
good thing, but if your arm isn't
built to throw aspeedy ball, don't
"throw it out" trying to get
smoke. Remember that slow ball
pitchers with tantalizing curves
have been very successful.
And don't dissipate. Save your
health. Get as much sleep as pos
sible and don't smoke or drink.
It'll spoil you if you do.
R. W. Marquard.
