#61

I was 83-85 when i was a sophomore in high school.
I was 6’2.5’’ and 235lbs.
Now 6’5.5’’ and 250.


#62

Yea… I’m the usual guy… 7 ft 6 and 423 lbs. i cruise at about 120-122 mph. I throw a 2 seam,4 seam and 3 seam. circle change, splitter, sinker, forkball, knuckle and knuckle curve, slider, curverball and dont forget about my gyro ball. Oh yea that shit is nasty.


#63

#64

15 year old freshman
5’6 138
73-76 mph.


#65

14 year old freshman
6’2 171 lbs

good days, i got upper 70’s with good sink and movement. Topped out a 82 with 4 seam, but i’m a sinker baller since i hate straight crap.


#66

15
around 5 foot 10, 130(i was really sick and lost 15 pounds)
pitched tonight and was hitting around 75, 76, or atleast thats what the catcher said it was around as hard as a guy who i know throws that.


#67

15, 16 in a month
70-75 mph
5`6
140lbs


#68

I got gunned at the canada cup camp tonight, and i threw around 72 73 average, and this is probably the second day i’ve played baseball so far due to being sick and poor weather. Got the coach to whistle with my bender though. So i’d say in around a month i’ll be hitting 75 consistently once the mechanics are a little more fine tuned. Oh and on the stalker gun, not juggs.


#69

W00t for fitting into the lowest category!


#70

15 right now height 5,7-5,8 weight 150

fastball- 70-75 i think i am not really sure but i played tennis ball and i had a good idea of my serve speed from looking at it so i assume around there


#71

yea well just joined here
fastball’s about 86-87 on a good day
average about 83 or so
but that’s only a 2-seamer
I don’ throw a 4-seamer but not sure if that makes a difference

by the way
6’7" 200lbs
senior


#72

5’11 210, yeah, im kinda pudgy, :lol: , anyways, 70-75, 18 years old, lefty, just graduated from high school. never been clocked, but i was clocked at 70 on flat ground on a bad day my sophmore year, and i know i throw harder, so i guess it could be a bit more than that. cutter, 2-seamer, 4-seamer, splitter, slider, and once in a great while a curve.


#73

lmao


#74

Now 16 soon to be a Junior 6’ 192 and still just low 70s mostly.


#75

Lincicum didn’t even make his High School team as a Soph because he didn’t throw hard enough. He was only 5’6 or 5’7" as a soph but had the great breaking stuff. By Senior year he was chucking it 90-93 consistently, and throwing at that velo for 7 innings. Big change!

One of my kids’ coaches is Lincicum’s buddy, went to school with him and played summer ball with him. Some great stories, especially for pitchers.

In high school I threw 84-87 consistently. I would have been 17-18. I was 6’1 195 lbs. I’m still 6’1 195 lbs, but much more tone. I’m 20 now, and my velocity has been anwhere from 86-89 some days and 88-90 other days. In high school the hardest I hit was 89 mph.
