Hello guys… (I’m guessing you are all guys) as I said I’m a girl who loves baseball and I’m helping a friend from Venezuela who is a pitcher and it’s coming down here with a scholarship and really, really want to be drafted… Well I have several questions, just to get real and see if he can makes his dream come true… He plays since he was 4 y/o and has been leader in pitching, champion pitcher, best pitcher and ranked on the top five batting leaders on national games. His actual manager says that he has great concentration on the mound. He has good command of his pitches and gets ahead of hitters on a regular basis and can go into the late innings and still have his good stuff.
Here some info about him
Position: Pitcher Rt
Types of pitches: fastball, slider, curve ball, sinker and change.
60 yd: 7.0 sec
Ball Speed: 85
Rank: top 10%
I wonder for you that have experience on this… Do you think he has any chance to be drafted? What is the best way to start?? I think tryouts… Am I right?
I’ve been reading a lot of post but some information about tryouts are out of date… How do I get recent information?? Is there any special dates when to start looking for info? He is going to Wyoming, that is not really good since he has to travel to attend the tryouts… But he is willing to do it… And we were thinking if scouts can go (to Wyoming) and watch him play? I don’t think so … But that’s why I am asking…
And for my information I would like to know what does mean
GAP, SAT, PSAT and ACT?? I read somewhere they were looking for guys with 3.0 GPA / 1000 SAT. my friend stats says his GAP is 3.3 … Is it good? What is this? How can he improve this?
I would really appreciate any help with my questions I really want to help him making his dream come true and probably I can be his Agent … i’m probably dreaming but that would be nice… wouldn’t it?? LOL.
Thank in advance guys!
