Reply to "Pitching vs, Catching"

I'm sure he is a good catcher, but at 5'7 he doesn't have any tickets. Size is important and he is still growing. For now all he can do is continue to eat and hope he sprouts up in the next year. If you're wondering why your 5'7 mid-high 70s son isn't getting looks as a pitcher it's because there is nothing for a college coach to look at. Getting outs and having a low ERA at 15 does not project as anything. Height and velocity does. So his coach is right, he is somebody that can pitch well and win them games for now until he grows and his velocity gets up there, there is nothing to see from a recruiting standpoint. Most kids are recruited the summer heading into their senior year, he still has plenty of time.
