Player in my son's class who is actually very solid player posted an 89 at a PG event at 14u (he was actually 15u grade age playing down at the time, but I digress). At the same event the player posted the sole 89 he posted mostly 82-83 otherwise and didn't touch 89 again--but PG posted it anyway. I suspect it was the exit velocity of ball and should not have been posted. But it was. Player and his organization tweeted the hell out of that reading for a long time. It appears on the profile. Player was offered by ACC School as a Freshman as a P. Player has not posted much beyond 82 since. As far as I know the player is still around 85. RHP. Do I think the 89 matters to said ACC school that offered him during COVID and his Freshman year without a visit. Damn straight. Do I think that player will ever play for said ACC School. Not a chance. Please tell me who this benefits.
I followed several games from the PG MLK tourney this past weekend on Diamondkast. I noted 3 different kids post personal record max velocity pitches, all 3 to 4 mph higher than any other pitch they threw all day. All were hit by the batter on a rope to the outfield🤔
