I’m a junior on my high school’s varsity team. I throw the ball between 77-80 mph with a solid change and a nasty deuce. I’ve started 3 games (went the distance in all 3) and i’ve done 2 innings of relief. I hate to put the blame on my team, but in my first start my team made 10 errors; 2nd start they made 8 errors; and tonight there was 7 errors. Not only is there errors in each game, but they make stupid plays which looks to me that it’s coming from lack of experience.
The problem is that my coach does nothing except have us take batting practice. We have probably had 2 or 3 actual infield/outfield practices, and it’s clearly showing. It’s very frusterating being on the mound and having easy ground balls turn into singles and doubles.
I want to approach the coach and adress this issue, but I’m not sure how…if anybody has any advice, i would greatly appreciate it
