Hello. This looks to be a very good site so far. I have already added on a few topics, but anyways, let me introduce myself.
My name is Jake, and I’m from Davenport, Iowa. I currently go to school at Triton College in Chicago. For those who don’t know Triton is a D-1 JUCO. For reference, the late Kirby Puckett played baseball at Triton. I am a redshirt freshman recovering from Tommy John’s Surgery. I had Tommy John’s September 19th, 2006 causing me to miss my entire freshman season. It was performed by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Alabama.
Pre-surgery I was consistently throwing 85-88. Andrews expects a full recovery, and I have been working with Tom House since this last June. I’ve seen just about every way of teaching possible, (except for Mike Marshall…) and I have to say so far House has been by far the best. I love the way he teaches and how everything makes perfect sense.

Anyway that’s enough for me. If you have any questions for me you can PM me or just ask.

Did you go to the pitcher summer prep last summer or any other camps? I was out there in San Diego for a week at the end of the summer.

Oh, and welcome!

Welcome aboard!

I went for the biomechanics eval. I did that whole thing, and I saw some clinic Tom puts on the entire summer. I’m not sure what it was exactly called. I had a semi-private lesson when I was there, and I worked out during the summer long clinic thing.

And thanks btw.
