this is prbly gonna be the longest post ever but what the heck
this is just some stuff ive been writing about my baseball
I had hitting practice yesterday with my team with this guy who runs clinics and he really helped me with my stance and I’m popping the ball up any more. Today, I went to the park(little league field) which I had not hit one out and in four at bats I hit three homeruns. Hopefully, I can carry this into when I go to Cooperstown.
As for pitching, I went to the park with my dad two days ago and I threw a bullpen. Although it was not at full speed, I was hitting my sports with my fastballs, change, and my curve which after not working for awhile has started to work again. I kept changing grips for my changeup, and I think I found the right one. I use three fingers across the seams, like a four seam fastball and I hold back a little bit in my hand and it has slight sinking action and is a considerable difference in velocity than my fastballs.
I took some groundballs with my Dad two days ago and some today with my friend. I have drop my fear of hard line drives at me. I have to learn to get in front of them like I used to. In Cooperstown I will be playing shortstop so I am going to have to make every play that comes my way.
I had practice yesterday and I have it today. At practice we did a bunch of hitting stations and various soft toss drills. I feel as if my hitting is really started to come around and I hope it will stick around for my tournament in Cooperstown. Also, at practice we did live innings and I played my normal shortstop position. I did pretty good except for one error I made.
Over the past few days I have been playing catch with my brother who is trying to walk on at Hartford, a division 1 school. My pitches have been good and I have been hitting my spots with my fastball. I will update after my practice and that will probably be my last update until after Cooperstown.
Just got back from practice and today we played 6 innings of an intra-squad scrimmage. I pitched two innings and went 1-3 at the plate. As for pitching I went two innings, no hits, 1 run, no earned runs, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. The one run that scored was on a walk that I thought was a strike and then a scored on a passed ball. My fastball was very good and my changeup was almost un-hittable.
