“From the Couch to 90” - My process from giving up baseball to making a comeback
I have decided to create a baseball log in order to document my journey and keep myself motivated. Plus, if my routine can help anyone else that’s a bonus!
I have pitched for my entire childhood up until 17 years old, which is when I decided to call it quits since I received a full ride academic scholarship to a Canadian University; thus I decided to focus on my studies. Also, I knew that baseball wasn’t going to take me anywhere as I was 17 and sitting at 75mph due to a poor arm action that I couldn’t shake. Now marks 2 years that I stopped playing baseball, I am 19 now. I have never been able to get away from my love of baseball and pitching, I have coached pitching over the past two years to 9 and 10 year olds which has inspired me to gear things back up.
Thus, I have decided to put my strong work ethic into becoming a better pitcher than I ever was by breaking down my mechanics and getting into the shape of an ideal pitcher.
Year: College Sophmore
Prior to stopping baseball
Height/weight: 6’2", 175-180
Height/Weight: 6’4", 195
Goals: To see a reading of 90mph on a radar gun, and to become an effective pitcher and gain credibility for coaching pitching in the future. However, being drafted is my dream.
Please let me know if you have any advice along the way, I know 19 is a little late in this journey but I’m determined and will take all the help I can get!
