I’m 23 and I’ve played college ball for the last 5 years. The problem is I have had a lot of problems playing. Here is a quick run through. (I’m 6’1 190 pounds - LHP)
Year 1) Didn’t pitch past JV only threw about 77-78
Year 2) Pretty much same story, transfered to a D3
Year 3) Started throwing harder - topped out at 83, didn’t make grades and I wasn’t eligible to play.
Year 4) Started throwing much harder - was beginning to touch 86-87 but still wasn’t eligible for the spring so transfered to an NAIA. Saw limited action as a reliever (I had a tough time accepting the role of coming in against one lefty here and there kind of deal and never really got the opportunity to get much farther)
Summer - I had a great summer touched 91, had a KC Royals scout take down my information ect.
Year 5) This is my fifth year I had an ok fall but was started off in the same come face one hitter type role and my velocity struggled and then at the end got to do a couple of middle relief type stuff, touched 88.
Year. I had 23 semester hours going into Christmas break. I needed 24 to be eligible and I took a winter intersession class. I just found out they won’t accept the credit to play ball. I’m still going to fight it some but I’m pretty sure I won’t be eligible to play.
I didn’t start pitching or really playing ball seriously until my junior year in high school. I love baseball now and I want to continue to play, I have a friend who throws around 83-85 (LHP) in the Atlantic Independent League. I know I can play and the thing is I keep getting better. (I think it has a lot to do with my late start) What would be your guys recommendations?
