It’s been a while since I posted. I just finished my baseball high school season. My shoulder was bothering me last summer so I took 6 months without throwing. When I started throwing prior to the season, I tried tweaking a few things. I pitched in about 7 games - and had one win. I pitched in 2 games in one week and overworked my shoulder again and had to sit out for about 10 days. Shoulder tendon strain. The therapist straightened me out. I was back on the mound and pitched fairly well. Our catcher can’t catch me, same as before, so I pretty much have to just keep throwing fast balls. I worked on my batting and I’m seeing the ball really well. I batted .435 for the season and hit my first high school home run. I also had ground rule double in another game and hit the warning track a few times. It’sjust a matter of a few more days in the gym before I start jacking them out on a regular basis. I only struck out twice for the season. I just got selected for the local American Legion team. I was able to throw pretty well at the tryout. The coach was impressed with my fastball movement and my knuckle curve. They clocked me at 84 on my fastball. I pitched one inning in a scrimmage game against a semi-pro team and had 2 ground outs and one K. I’m just over 6’ now and weigh 150 . . . and still not shaving. Lol. Hopefully, I continue to get taller. The coach already thinks I’m 6’2". He asked me how tall I was at the tryout. I said 6’ in bare feet. He said, “You look more like 6’2”. I said OK, that works for me, so I’m on the roster as 6’2". There is a guy on the team that’s 6’ 4" and my hips are the same height as his. He has a longer torso. So hopefully, my torso isn’t done growing. Lol
I’ll post more often as the Legion season moves along and try to get some videos.
