Baseball Pitching Velocity Chart from Youth to Pro

Baseball Pitching Velocity ChartHere is a Baseball Pitching Velocity Chart from Youth to Professional. If you are curious about how hard you should be throwing based on your age group or how you compare when it comes to pitching velocity amongst your peers then here is a pitching velocity chart from youth to professional baseball.

This is just a range of low velocity to high velocity pitching based on a specific age. This should only be used to gain an idea of how hard you should be throwing. If you are not in these ranges or you are above or below these ranges it isn’t an issue. You are just falling outside the averages. If you are concerned about your pitching velocity based on your age then I would highly recommend you checkout the 3X Pitching Velocity Program or the 2X Velocity Program for position players.

In the chart below you will learn the ranges of pitching velocity for ages 8-22+. These are just ranges based on averages for all youth to professional pitchers. This chart could change at anytime based on the evolution of the pitcher in the game of baseball.

The chart below is based off of MLB data showing the average pitching velocities based off of age. 26 years old is the best age for top velocity through an MLB career. 30 years and up is when pitching velocity takes a sharp decline.

Baseball Pitching Velocity Program

3x-extreme-pitching-velocity-programThis program has helped tons of pitchers live the dream of throwing 90+mph and signing with a D1 University, getting drafted by a Major League Organization and making it back to Major League Baseball. Many scouts in all organizations of baseball have recommended this program to help young pitchers get to the 90+mph range to improve their value at the next level.

The reason the 3X Extreme Pitching Velocity Program works is because it is based off of science and it has been proven to develop the 90+mph fastball on thousands of pitchers. It isn’t rocket science or voodoo, it is the real deal! The program comes with a high level workload of drills, lifts and exercises scientifically programmed to enhance throwing speed on the mound while developing an efficient pitching delivery. The format of the 3X Pitching Velocity Program is similar to the same approach Olympic throwers have been using for decades to increase throwing velocity. This approach isn’t new to the sports world but it is new to baseball.

If you are serious about your career and are insanely driven to put yourself into an extremely small percentage of pitchers who are potential D1 prospects, top level draft picks or you just want to reach your potential on the mound then this program is the best chance you have to making your dreams come true.

  • I’m 16, a junior in high school, and throw 79 do you thinks it’s possible for me to hit 90 my senior year?
    If so any recommendations for drills that could help?

  • I am 14 and 9 months old and throw 82 at a height of 5 foot 7 and 125lbs

  • I am 13 and throwing 75 to 77 what do I need to do to get my fastball to 80 by the end of the year

  • I’m 16 and throw 79 I want 84-87 my senior year and recommendations?

  • I am 17 and I am throwing 85-87

  • My son is 11 he is only 65 lbs wet and he hits 44 to 48. The other pitchers on his team weight 25 to
    35 lbs more than him and throw 50 to 65. Does the kid’s weight have anything todo with Velocity? I only see stuff on age not weight.

    • No. I’ve to many college style workouts trying to get better and they always say mass equals gas. I’m 17 and weight 160 and I’m the smallest on the team but I throw the fastest. (92) just incorporate bands in his practices and he was throw much harder. I increased 12 mph in a year doing bands. What ever you do don’t throw heavy balls I’ve seen many people mess up there arms with it. I hope this helps kinda

  • I throw 66 on mound and I’m 11. I want to throw 95+ by the time I’m 18. Do you think it is possible to gain 2-5 mph every year.

    • Yes, I think it is entirely possible. I actually was able to gain 9 ticks in one year. Just practice, and you should be good.

      P.S., I recommend long toss

    I just turned 15 and I mainly play shortstop but I also do a little pitching and I can throw up to 77mph. How fast do you think I will be able to throw by the time I am an adult ?

  • Hey Im 27 years old, I used to throw 87mph. Now im trying to get back into it. What should be the best approach?
    Should I start by measuring how fast im throwing now and then train.?

  • As a 73 yo pitcher in an over 50 league on full sized diamonds, I have lost the capability of throwing a fast ball 60ft6in without ‘spiking’ it. When I use a weighted ball there is no problem. When I play 1B, throws around the Diamond are fine, but on the mound… the fast ball goes directly down to about 45′. How should I approach fixing this?

  • Hey I am doing a baseball research study for my physical therapy program and was wondering if you could point me in the direction of where this data was originally published so I can reference it. Thanks!

  • I’m 65 and trying to add velocity for pitching. I can only throw about 53 mph now but will use 6 lb medicine ball. I hope it helps

  • When I was 12 I was throwing 75
