Quick update ...... Son did a 180, struggled to throw strikes this summer and bat improved to the point that if he wasn't pitching he was at 1st or 3rd. They needed his bat in the lineup. He hit for average with some pop. The plan now is to continue to work at 1st and 3rd and his hitting. The game will eventually tell him when he is a pitcher only.
Glad this was revived... When I commented originally I can't believe I failed to say a couple things. First big time kudos for your son being an A student and second good for him with working hard to get in athletic shape! He is on the right track.
