wow…all of you have some great logs so i figured i would start one on my own…
ill start with a little history about myself…
I got into baseball in the 8th grade when the marlins won the world series in 03. i fell in love with baseball. watching josh beckett made me want to pitch. funny how i dont even care about him.
anyway i started out in pony league and i pitched maybe 3 games. i was horrible. no real mechanics but i had natural athletic ability. my coach never let me play.
Road to Highschool
im currently a junior. 5’10 165 pounds. I throw:
(working a little bit on a cutter)
anyway my freshman year i tryd out and made the jv team. its a good thing we didnt cut because there was no way i should have made it. anyway sitting the whole year on the bench and not getting to throw a single pitch in a game lit a fire in my ass. i worked so hard over my summer going into my sophmore year playing for legion. i read every article on pitching there was. my american legion was a big success and some of the seniors who saw me play talked to my coach.
I ended up starting the season opener for varsity my sophmore year because our ace got expelled. I pitched okay in the opener but there were alot of errors and we were 10 run ruled quickly. i started one more game and didnt pitch well. lots of walks.
[b]I was a head case on the mound[size=18][/size] my nerves killed me and everything got to me. i couldnt shake off an error
anyway a week later i severly strained my deltoid in my pitching am messing around in practice and i missed the whole season because of it. i was back to normal by the summer and i played summerball again and did well once again.
this year is my junior year and ive been very good. its funny…i didnt play an inning on jv my freshman year. i played only varsity my sophmore year. now im actually on JV for the first time this year. so far i am 5-0
with a low era. i dont know what it is but its probably in the low 2’s.
By the way i play both JV and Varsity but they havent needed me on Varsity. we have had a very successful Varsity season so why change anything i guess.
ill post videos of mechanics soon. suppossedly i got clocked at 78 at one of the games. i would like the oppurtunity to air it out and see what i can get to.
