hey fellas, its been a while since I posted here, so I’d figure to post about what’s been going on with me.
First off I been playing summer ball for the washington manor ports, me and this other guy are the youngest at 16, there’s guys from College of San Mateo, to Patten College, to CSU monterrey…mostly college guys. We recently hosted a mini tournament and I believe laflippins son’s team was in the tournament, from redwood city, pretty cool.
Well, this month and all this time I have had no pain for my arm, im able to sucessfully relieve with no pain, or nothing…I feel I throw harder than I did before HS season. I long toss farther. I have developed a true circle change up, im trying to work on a true curveball this summer though.
I went to this Sunshine West Showcase this weekend in Chula Vista, Ca…I must say I don’t really like those showcases. I go and there’s no one I know or anything, I don’t have much fun playing, but I know its just business…I payed a lot of money for it. There was scouts no question. I was gunned at 81-84, I don’t know what I topped at yet, I felt I wasn’t even throwing my hardest, I had to throw soft just to get it across the plate. I was having trouble finding the strike zone bad, although I didn’t give up a hit in 3 innings.
I didn’t feel comfortable at all, maybe because it was my first big showcase or whatever, there’s no excuses. I felt a little “pressure to perform”. I’m not going to lie, I was a little disapoined how it went. Although our coach said I looked good. He gave his contact info he coaches for San Diego Show.
I’m planning on going to another one of these perfect game showcase, but next time I will hopefully be more prepared and at least sit high 80’s. I know I can do it, I know I throw harder than 84. Point Blank I’m gonna keep working hard this summer and bust my ass this summer season for the ports. and im not gonna let anyone else tell me otherwise, because that’s what my parents taught me. Straight Up. I f*ed up this showcase, I know I could have pitched better. On to the next on like Jay-Z said.
Anyways lol, I got a letter for UCSB, I made 1st team all league for HS, and Im having a blast playing with college guys, I can learn from
seriously though, what do you guys think?
