Okay, so I usually play OF and 1B in baseball but, after our first practice my coach insisted that I be a pitcher this year so I agreed. We don’t really have high school ball in Wyoming however Evanston has a legion team so we can still play even though we barely have a team. I don’t throw hard at all I throw a lot of junk, I am 15 years old and I throw in order of usage:
- Apple Ball (variation of splitter)
I know these aren’t very common but, they work for me, I get the outs that I need. The knuckleball I throw most of the time with a cutter every now and then to keep them honest.
I only throw an Apple or Eephus as sort of a surprise pitch because most people don’t see them from me much or at all for that matter. The apple I throw once or twice a game each most of the time. My eephus is only used once every other game to make someone look like a fool. I am a relief pitcher so I pitch alot of games seeing as we only have 10 players total on the team. When I don’t pitch I’m usually in left field because I’m a good outfielder and my coach wants my hitting in the order.
Well I’m glad to have joined this community and look forward to talking with you all in the future.
