Hi, new to the forum, new to pitching. However, I am excited to learn. I have been playing ball regularly this summer but have not been lifting or conditioning otherwise.
I am in my senior year in college at a D-III school (Stockton College, NJ) and am thinking of going out for the team. The reason I really am considering it is because they only have one Lefty pitcher coming back this season. I know baseball mentally and have a decent build for pitching…6’ 3" 165lbs. Do you think I would even have a chance at that level of play? I know that right now I am not close to ready, but with 7 months to train is it worth a shot? I’m sure I can get my mental game ready, as well as conditioning by then…but is the actually pitching mechanics out of reach since I have basically no experience?
I can throw about 60 accurately now but have no idea how to throw faster. Any suggestions or bits of hope ?? I would really appreciate it. Thanks guys…go Yanks.
