What is ASMI's position, if any, about baseball pitchers long tossing with a softball during preseason throwing? What about during the season? As a kid, I remember watching Jim Palmer long toss with a softball at my local high school before Spring Training (I don't know if he threw the softball during the season). Palmer did all right for himself. Also, I have read that Pedro Martinez long tossed with a softball. A few weeks ago at a local park I ran into two baseball players from Cuba training for an MLB tryout. They were throwing with a softball. I asked them about it (I speak Spanish) and they said everyone in Cuba and the Dominican Republic does it. Recently, Kyle Boddy of Driveline Baseball was asked about long tossing with a softball, and he tweeted, "I like it. Very popular with Latins." What does ASMI say?
