Hi all, this is my first post outside of the “Introductions” forum. Tonight I make my return to the mound after a ten year layoff from baseball.
I am a 34 yr old 6’ 245 lb southpaw. I am 30lbs heavier then I was 10 years ago (working on reducing that very hard) but I think I am still pretty flexible, I can still do the splits both ways.
My goal was to get my weight down to 210-215 over the next year and play next year. I called the KCMSBL League rep to let him know of my plans for next year and to get some info from him. Surprisingly he remembered me and said he had a team in dire need of pitching. To make a long story short he convinced me to play.
I hope this is not a mistake on my part beings that it has been a long layoff and I have never pitched at this weight.
I am a little nervous because I really dont know what to expect. I have been working out, doing the Jobes exercises and throwing every other day for the past 5 weeks or so. However I have not yet thrown off of the mound.
My arm feels good, which is very promising, buit I am nervous about the timing and tempo of my delivery. Wish me well. I will keep y’all posted later on.
I am very thankful I found this website.
