I Started a topic earlier around November 10th asking how hard I should throw as a 15 year old freshman in high school. Back then at the tryouts Topped out at 76 MPH Being a LHP I attracted some attention from varsity and I played with them a little in pre-season. That was around 8 months ago. I was just clocked again today for the first time since that tryout, hoping to hit 79 MPH I kinda laughed when I hit 80 the first pitch. Today I topped out at 83 MPH and I am still a freshman. My coach says If I eat right and workout my lower half of my body I could be seeing 87 next spring when I am a sophomore. I want to know how hard I would have to throw as a LHP to go up to varsity at my age? I want to go to a D1 school some day and I don't know what they're looking for velocity wise from a LHP.
