Hi, my name is Aris I am 14 years old, 5 foot 3 and 112 pounds. I have posted on this site before but never as a pitching log. I am using my log for advice and to better myself as a pitcher.
A little info on me. I live in Canada and I am trying out for the Bantam AA Tigers this year. They are a travel ball organisation. Most high schools in my province don’t have baseball teams including mine. My travel ball team plays from around April to September and I also play for a fall ball team that plays from late September to early November. I have an extreme passion for the game of baseball and hope to be able to play ball while getting and education at a division 1 school and then hope to get drafted in the MLB. These are my long term goals. I have a goal daily. To get one step closer to living my dream by giving it all ive got. I forgot to mention early that I am lefthanded.
As a pitcher I have two pitches:
A two seam fastball with good movement
A circle change that is good but still needs work
I throw from a 3 quarter arm slot. I don’t throw very hard. I am usually in the low to mid 60’s. Even though I don’t throw hard I get batters out with movement… when I throw strikes. I am soon going to find a pitching coach.
I don’t have a specific workout yet and that is why I am getting Tuff Cuff for Christmas. Until I get Tuff Cuff I am doing these exercises daily:
90 pullups (I do three different kinds)
50 push ups
An assortement of ab exercises
Goals until tryouts (which are in March)
Gain 8 pounds to put me at 120
Get to the high 60’s with my fastball
Regarding school: I go to the number one rated public school in the province and grades should not be a problem.
I will try to get a mechanics video of myself up as soon as possible and I am excited to get your guys’ feedback. I am excited to start this journey!
