I’m just wondering, what does (D1) varsity ball look for in a pitcher? My team lost its 3 inning eating starters and need pitching. I’m hoping to be one who helps fill that gap.
There’s only one player who played varsity as a sophomore, he’s a senior now, and has been the best player in the state for 3 consecutive years - so my school isn’t big on underclass men there, so i really will need to blow away my coach to show I’m ready.
As of now, it looks like my pitch Arsenal will be sinker, breaking ball (I slurve slider variations, and I can throw a curve), a change up, and I guess I’ll include the natural cutter I can throw.
What do I need in terms of velo? My best guess is a sinker 81-83?
While I know there is no true cookie cutter answer, what is it typically?
