If you only throw mid to high 80s but can command 3 solid pitches can you still play d1 in college. I throw upper 70s right now but have been working on my mechanics and my core and legs. I know that by the time I am 18 I can throw harder.
Look at most MLB pitchers. They throw 87-91, most of them.
It all depends on command, makeup, and secondary stuff.
The answer is yes. Believe it or not, grades and SAT/ACT scores mean as much or more…Be successful, look all over, be diligent and you can get there at those speeds.
Defiantly. Many D1 pitchers only throw mid 80’s. Command is very important
