Q

"How old should u be when u learn to pitch?"

A
There are so many motor skills attached to pitching. Age is a non-issue in my opinion if one is practicing in the safety of their own space (younger siblings tend to start earlier). Once the athlete decides to take it live (game or practice) they need to be skilled enough to field/catch/defend themselves with their glove and mature enough to give good effort. Pitching is a privilege, not a birthright.
