Dave has been doing very well lately. He is still 16 and is 6’1" 180 and is a Junior. Been really getting some great coaching help and it really shows. His fastball is now clicking 87 mph, curveball is working very nice,as are his other pitches, so things are going well.
It’s getting to be about the time for getting an idea where he wants to go to school. Obviously he want to go to a top rated baseball school, and with us being in the Mid-West that either means going South East or West Coast. We’ve been discussing what would be a fantasy school, a realistic school, and the take what you get schools. He did some research, and comes back that he wants to be a Seminole. Huge history, great program of course.
Curious what are some of the top schools for developing pitching talent? I’m sure you can’t just go by win/loss records. I’m sure many schools just pick good talent and don’t do a spectacular job of developing that talent. Where I’m sure many more schools are known for getting decent talent and developing that talent into something special. Where if teams were really searching for a pitcher… what would be their go to schools?
