So I made my highschool baseball team. As a spot releiver mostly. They told me that since i dont throw hard and im not in the best of shape that i could only got 2 innings or so before the other team starts teaing off.
But hey its a start!
Plus the deduction theyre making is only based on my pitching velo and a couple times i pitched in their facilities. I dont throw hard I admit it but I have a splitter and a curveball that can get any guy out. also the times they have seen me pitch I had already thrown 2 days before ( my first pitching sessions are saturday and my highschool sessions are on monday) throwing to about 30 or so batters so it wasnt the best possible time hahaha. The biggest reason I made it was because I had 2 major people backing me up. #1 the instructor from my saturday clinics who is friends with the var coach and told him he should use me #2 because a coach who is helping my dad start a legion team also spoke with the coach
(hes actually the father of vinny rottino).
I plan to impress them when I do pitch so maybe i could work myself into a bigger role. It’s no different then any other team I have played on, I just have to produce good results and I can do that.
