Hello, wanted to introduce myself here. My name is Matthew Berish and I was formerly known here as futureKazmir. I know I wasn’t the most liked person on this site but that was during my “cocky” period of my life. A lot has happened to me in the years I’ve been off here so I’ll give a quick run-down on whats gone on.
-Was my schools #1 Varsity Starter as a junior
-Recruited by 3-4 small D3 Colleges
-Had surgery to repair a torn labrum in my right shoulder in November of 2010
-Recovered in time to play my senior year (saw limited time on the mound in relief: 3IP 6Ks 2BB 1ER)
-Enlisted in the New York Army National Guard the 26th of May 2011
-Went to Fort Sill, Oklahoma July 19th 2011 for Basic Training and Advanced Individual Training as a 13B Field Artillery Cannon Crewmember
-Began messing around with left handed throwing during Basic Training
-Attending MCLA (D3) for Athletic Training starting Spring semester 2012 and playing on the baseball team next season (possibly this season)
Well now that all the boring catchup stuff is over we can get down to the reason were all here…PITCHING!!!
Body Fat: 17%
Throws with: Left/Right
Bats with: Right
Right Side;4-seam, 2-seam, Knuckle-Curve, Three Finger Change
Left Side; 4-seam, 2-seam, Three Finger Change
Fastball Velocity: Right Side 82-84mph Left Side 63-65mph
Goals: Gain more velocity on the left-side, since I’m relatively new to throwing a baseball left-handed, I have plenty of room for improvement. Develop a breaking pitch for the left-side. Lose some body fat and gain more solid muscle.
I look forward to improving as a pitcher and honing my craft so that one day I can play professionally. Ill keep you all updated as I go and eventually post a video of my throwing form from both sides. Ill be posting in the other areas of this site and look forward to learning and teaching.
Have a good one!!!
