hey guys whats up.
I don’t know if you guys can help me answer this but ya i have a question on catching.
Whenever someone has seen me pitch and catch, they always say that i am a better catcher. Don’t get me wrong i am an amazing pitcher but i want to see my options as a catcher. This year my stats for pitching was an undeafeated record at 7-0.
I had 42 innings and i had i think 50 strikeouts. I was also the ace on our team. And reached a 87mph fastball.
[b]I have some questions about a catch though:
Can you lift heavy weights with your upper body and can you bench press. The reason i ask this is because you need to be strong to hit the ball far and to hit for power. Also i love lifting with heavy weights on my upper body. lol.
My pop time was 2.2 seconds. Don’t know if that is good. But i got a rocket arm i think.
Could i practice my batting for like 4 hours a day. Would this hurt me or benefit me. Dumb question but ya. [/b]
The reason i want to maybe focus on a catcher is just because i want to lift heavy weights. Also i would love to focus on my batting. Because for a hitter you can practice it for any amount of time and get better. For pitcher all you can do is throw bullpens( i know their is a lot of drill work). but really would a catcher be better. I am 5’10 and have an amazing arm. If i bulked up. Which i love to do but haven’t because of baseball. Then would i stand a better chance at getting picked up by a college.
Also since i was about 14-present(17) i have been both a pitcher and catcher. So ya would it be okay to be a catcher instead of pitcher. Or would it be a waste. I have 1 year if i do try.
Also can you answer my questions in the bold.
Really need help with this topic please.
