DII or DIII possible?


#1

Hopeful DII or DIII pitcher entering senior year. Top speed 82 mph. three pitch mix of fastball curveball changeup. 5’10 about 160 lbs. thoughts?


#2

Where are you from? Are you hoping to play in-state? Personally, with velocity at 82 I feel both DII and DIII are possible. Aim to throw 82 consistently.


#3

Connecticut. Hoping to play either in New England or possibly in Florida.


#4

Yes that’s possible at DIII. I played DIII and 82 was probably the mid-to-low end of the guys who got significant mound time, especially if you don’t sit 82 consistently.

I was our sidearm closer/reliever and sat 82-84 if that’s any reference point. Our #1 sat high 80s, and our #2 consistently threw 84-86 with a hammer and a cutter.

Velocity isn’t everything at the DII and DIII level (hell every level), and mound presence, maturity, competitiveness, etc. plays a huge factor in who sits the bench vs. who pitches.
