Here is the deal. I am now 30 years old and have not had a thing to do with baseball since high school. During high school i was an Ace. My freshman year my 4 seam fastball was on average 80mph. My 2 seam is what i threw the most because it had more movement on it then most high school curve balls and that was in the high 70s. Two weeks into my senior year i wrecked a dirk bike and totally destroyed my arm. Two months ago was the first time i touched a baseball since.
For some reason i woke up and have this insane urge to play again. I mean its at the front of my mind more then anything. I went down to the park and threw some balls and it felt really good. I went to a place here in town and threw about 60 pitches and i was shocked to see i can throw in the low 90s totally out of shape and my mechanics are a little rusty. Mostly because i have not stretched in years.
For the past two months i have been doing nothing but working out, strengthening my core, working on my flexibility, and stamina. I would say in about 6 months i will be in the best shape i have ever been in my life.
Due to my age and back ground i know the odds are like buying a one dollar lottery ticket and expecting to win millions but i just cant sleep knowing that i quit. So what should i do now? Should i wait around and look for some tryouts or should i start pushing emails with videos of myself pitching to ball clubs? I feel like i am already to old so waiting for days to go by is just killing my chances all that much more.
Here are my basic stats:
4S FB: 89-93
2S FB: 87-90
I will update these stats in two months.
