My Dream is to make it to the MLB, and I believe I can do it if I continue to put the work in. I’m a baseball age 11 and just turned 12. I am considered the best pitcher on every team I have played on and have a fastball right now that sits at around 55 MPH. I also throw a 2 seam, and changeup. I know how to throw a slider and have thrown a couple of them and it’s pretty good but I’m told to stay away from throwing it. When I am fully grown, I am projected to be 5 10- 6 feet. Right now I am 4 11. I practice almost everyday and focus on the other parts of the game, but mainly pitching. I throw 60-70 innings per year and am wondering if that is too much? I also play AAU baseball, Little League, and the Summer All-Star baseball I’m in right now. Unlike most kids, I don’t just practice on the field, I do body weight exercises at home, as well as stretching and things like that. What I’m trying to get at is, do I have a shot at my dream of making it to the MLB? Where do I stand at for pitchers my age?
I would appreciate some feedback. Thank You!
Right now, I am coming off my best season where I pitched 22 Innings and had an ERA of around 2 for my AAU team. I am in the midst of the all star season of little league which could become my best season, since I have pitched 20 Innings allowing a total of 1 ER about 3/5 through the season.
