Not to brag, but I’m a proud parent. My son finally gets it! You can perceive that he is messing with the hitter’s now rather than randomly trying to keep them guessing. He’s formulating a plan using in-out, up-down, fast-slow. He just turned 16 and is in a prep league for 16-19 year olds and he’s doing great. He’s throwing over 80 mph and has been a shut down reliever for them this summer. Compared to his off speed, his fastball looks like a bullet. He’s had one walk and five Ks giving up 2 hits in his last 4 innings. The only run to score was an inherited runner on second base. Counting spring and summer he’s got a 2.27 ERA. His pitch counts are way down because he’s not trying to strike people out.
