My boy pitched at Baseball Heaven out on Long Island this past Saturday and pitched a gem. Played against the Long Island Ducks, he  pitched a complete 7 inning game, gave up 1 hit, 1 walk, 7 strikeouts and a pick off at first base, only threw 71 pitches to get a win 5-0.

Yeah at end of most games after pitching 7 hes in the high 80-90 pitch count,  this was a nice low pitch count.  Thats what should happen when all fielders do their job, makes it easier on the pitcher. Can have the best pitcher in the world but if the fielders are not making routine outs, its tuff. Good thing for the most part he has a good group of kids behind him.  Cant wait for the fall already, thats when we start again in an all wood bat league. Im not a fan of these aluminum and BBCOR bat tournaments that seem to be prevalent all over NJ and Long Island. Put a wood bat in those teams hands and im sure most would not look as good. Coming around with an aluminum bat is much easier then wood, sorry just ranting..lol..

My 15 year old opened up fall ball for his  new team yesterday and  is back with his old coach, he went 4 innings then his elbow was starting to get sore so we yanked him. When he came out it was a 2-2 game.  We took  that game with a 6-2 win over a team that was comprised mostly of 16-17 year olds. He also went 4 for 5 in batting. We split, second game lost 4-0, had a last inning rally but coulndt make it happen. All in all playing against older kids we did well and we should do very well when we go away to tournaments and they play kids their age.

Awesome to see some baseball happening, we passed on fall ball this yr to lesson the burden of football and baseball at the same time, now that he's out of football I wish we signed him up. His travel team for next yr starts training / practice next month!

Impressive. Taking those stats to the next level:

Assuming no errors and no double plays, he faced 23 batters for 21 outs, 1 walk, 1 hit. The walk had to be at least 4 pitches and the strikeouts had to be at least 21 pitches, so that's 25 pitches at a MINIMUM to 8 batters. So he was averaging under 3 pitches per hitter for the other 15 batters.

Thats okay, give your boy some rest time. That one month will go so fast. Best of luck.
