I started 2 of my 3 Junior Legion games and came away with wins in both of them. I’ve given up one earned run - a home run to a player that everyone knows is too old, but nobody seems to care, so it is what it is. We beat them 10 - 1.
It’s good to play with good players around me. My coach told me not to worry about striking everyone out, like I’ve had to do on most of my previous teams. He wants me to pitch to contact, and not to nibble too much… My first game, I came away with 0 walks, which is a rare accomplishment for me. The next game, I had 3 walks but the strike zone seemed real tight, for both teams. It was raining throughout most of the game, so the ball was harder to control. I left the game after 5 innings up, having given up one hit and leading 7 - 0, and we ended up winning 7 - 2 as the coach brought in some younger players to get some playing time.
The rec league first game is tomorrow, and I will probably play some outfield.
I’ll post again soon.
