Good stuff! How old is he now?
Long way to go still, but he's a beast. I think the gap between him and most of the rest is growing.
He's throwing a curve ball now that's nasty as it can be. Brutal on kids. Throws both two and four seam fast balls and a circle change (struggling with that pitch right now).
He locates his pitches and throws with a lot of velocity. He overpowers most. I've only seen two kids with comparable arms, but they weren't nearly as accurate.
Nasty pick off moves taugh to him by a former mlb pitcher.
He's probably one of the most complete pitchers in this age group in this part of Florida. I've seen most of the best as he's been playing travel ball now for three years.
He's worked his ass off to get to this point. He loves it. Wakes up sometimes and watches YouTube videos of baseball players.
