I did report it. But thanks to Bobby for the photo from UNC! Nick has been pitching quite well and really raking it. It's especially fun when he pounds one out of the park -- since he's not the biggest guy, the outfielders always do that startled thing and then have to sprint in vain to the fence. Some may remember two years ago when VirginiaPreps.com did a feature on Nick and posted a link here. Some people questioned whether you really could tell who would become a big time guy so early on...

Rising HS Sophomore Advice

This is my second post on the site. I received great advice from my first post, but I am still unclear about some things. I am a future sophomore with dreams and aspirations of playing at Notre Dame, going pro, etc. My freshman year was disappointing from a baseball standpoint. I was second-string under a player who was probably a little better than me. He threw harder than me and was well known by the coaches before the season.

HS Tryout Question

momo1515 ·
Hi, I am a junior in high school and tryouts are coming up soon. I am a solid pitcher but I also play 3B and outfield for my summer team. I really enjoy hitting and cannot see myself becoming a PO just yet. My school is pretty big, so I probably have a better chance of making it onto the Varsity A team as a pitcher but I know I would not be getting much playing time and won't enjoy being just a pitcher. So I'm debating on whether to try out as both an outfielder and pitcher so I 'd be able...

Do Bad High School Stats Matter?

Tough situation. I would imagine that the administration probably already knows about the guy. Surely some other people have spoken to him in the past. Maybe they don't care. You could look to layout a case against the guy with the AD by noting the number of people who've left over the years, and asking, "Does the school really have this many 'problem' players?" I would add, "Sir, don't you think that we are a pretty normal high school as far as kids are concerned? I see no other high school...

Details aside, this won't be the last time your son has to deal with an ass for a coach, boss, professor, etc. You should equip him with how to deal with these people rather than having to do it for him. It's a valuable lesson. I can sympathize with the coaching situation. My son's school brought in a new coach that was so toxic that players who would have made up the entire starting lineup this season transferred out or quit over the past 2 years. The administration didn't care. It took the...

No matter how much of an A-hole the coach may be, there seems to be a disconnect or parts missing to the story. The coach or coaches took the time to put a letter together for you. That is not consistent with a knee-jerk spur-of-the-moment over-reaction. If you don't mind, what was the basic premise of the letter? Could there be any substance to any of it? Might your son have said something that was mis-interpreted? If the HC is historically the problem, then why did two other coaches react...

First a baseball thing. 4.2 to first and an 8.3 60 don't mesh. One is major league speed. One is snail slow. I completely question the person doing the timing. I'm betting the story isn't exactly as your son told you. More than one coach is upset with him. There isn't a conspiracy to get him. Your son has to suck it up and talk with the coaching staff about what they perceive he did wrong. My son was a varsity starter soph year of high school. When the bus stopped for a game the coach made a...

My son played high school for a coach where kids quit baseball because of the coach. The parents publicly complained about the coach. It was obvious to me the coach could be difficult at times. But it was nothing to quit over according to my son. Every kid who quit was questionable to start. They had to blame someone over their lack of ability. Why not the coach who snapped at them a few times?

RJM we actually had the same thought on this. The 4.2 and 8.3 stuck out like a sore thumb to me as well. Maybe a typo but when I see that everything after it gets called into question. there do seem to be major pieces missing. Makes it hard to make any fair comment.

My son is pretty good pitcher and wants to mature his skills. Does he need high school ball for this? Or will Travel/Showcase suffice for recruiters? My son is playing JC baseball after being cut Junior year of HS by a coach not too different from yours. Never played Varsity. May be a longer, harder road but it's possible. Can your kid still play 14U next spring? A little young but maybe look into spring leagues for red-shirted JC players.

The 4.2 and 8.3 are not in sync. That time to first equates to mid 6's+ in 60, not low 8's. Your situation requires further investigation as to what was said by all parties: perhaps a quiet conversation with one of the assistants, away from the field and in a neutral, non-confrontational setting. Quotes from the 'trashing' email may help us understand the situation better.

Quite honestly none of your son's friends etc are ever going to say something bad about your son, their reaction is not necessarily the best information to rely on. Same for previous coaches. I would also not initiate conversations with your son's friends or former coaches regarding the situation nor would I send them copies of the e-mails. That's just asking for more trouble when one of those people mentions it to the coach or some other friend who does the same. If the coach sent me an...

here is an uneducated opinion based on the facts I skimmed, I assume they are not 100% complete and probably only somewhat accurate... Will it hurt to not play school, maybe some but maybe not, it won't be a deal breaker if he is a good kid and good player. Should there be some other resolution outside of a freshman walking off and quitting the team? absolutely.

Is there a chance it went down like this: Assistant coach is the only one keeping track of who is injured and who isn't and he was off when your kid started pitching. After the third inning of your kid was pitching he walked out, saw who was on the mound and then told the other coaches "we have a problem". At that point he called your kid over and said "Are you even allowed to be running yet?" Meaning....aren't you still hurt kid? Your kid responds with a cocky singsong answer “my doctor...

Just as you obtain information on the HS coach, he too gets information, sometimes years in advance of a player heading his way. So, forming an opinion before one gets the opportunity to prove what they're about is a two way street. You don't have to like the coach or his program, but you do have to respect it. Your player needs to work this out on his own and simply get to an understanding with the coach. Learn what it means to be humble and work his tail off getting better. That is how you...

The coach must have one redeeming quality eh? - he picked your son as an 8th grader and you seemed like you were thrilled by that.
