I faced Joe Benson and struck him out once when I was 11 and he was 12 (2nd Round Draft pick from the Twins a couple years ago).
I faced Cedric Redmond (late round draft pick by the Cubs a couple years ago) and he grounded out twice against me. I actually got the win against him. We won the game 2-1 to put us in the championship. He walked me.
I gave up a double to Brett Graffy (Pitcher at Notre Dame). I was only in 6th grade though and I was on the 8th grade team and he was an 8th grader. He was throwing low 80’s in 8th grade and hit me with a pitch. When I got to first base the 1B was like dude kids 2x the size of you bawl their eyes out when Graffy hits them. I was only like 4’6 in 6th grade lol… I just got nailed in the leg, worst HBP pain I ever had and I just jogged it off to 1B, then stole 2b.
I pitched against Jake Christensen (QB at Iowa) and (Drafted by Reds out of HS in 05 but didnt sign). Just pitched against him in practice. I was on the Sophomore team he was on the Varsity.
Pitched against Nick Mitidiero (2x All State and set the HS Batting Average Record in Illinois). I think it was like the 5th best Batting Average Nationally too or something.
He was the best hitter I ever faced and he still hasnt been drafted or anything like the other kids. He’s a Junior at Bradley. I dont know how hes doing but he was set to go to ASU on scholarship out of HS. There was a bunch of confusion, he waited out ASU and was looking to go to another bigtime school and play earlier. Then I think he decided on ASU and ASU had somebody who already excepted the scholarship offer at the same position. He went to Triton Junior College and dominated. Now he’s at Bradley University.
