The one thread rule is about the same topic (i.e. tryouts - we don't need 7 threads about a tryout).

Research resources for College Pitching programs/coaches

biggestfan2018 ·
I am working to help my son (2018 LHP) research different school's programs and pitching philosophies. I am not super versed and there may be very obvious places to go but I am really not seeing what were are looking for. We get to the athletic sites, search some bio info on coaches and very rarely will find a good local article on the pitch coach or some extension of a low ERA school. For instance - which programs are just looking for big and velo? Say 6'5" FB 102mph? For my son that would...

Re: Research resources for College Pitching programs/coaches

Sounds very similar to my son, except more velocity. Also in HS my son was a high strike out pitcher. He went to a D3. But so many of his options, the PC, had either not been with the program long or clearly looking to move up. Baseball was number one on his college search. Could he play at that school? Fortunately he had plenty of choices where that was a possibility. So baseball programs being equal, he was able to decide based on his major, school environment, etc. Quickly he decided he...

That's tough being thousands of miles away. My best quick thought is look up the schools he would be interested in, then look up pitching coach and Google him. If he is on twitter or instagram (in all probability he will be since that is what kids are on now), then look who he follows. Lots of times, they follow someone who they respect their philosophy. I know that is a VERY long way around. Be aware that the Pitching coach and / or the head coach could easily change. My son is a red shirt...

Re: Research resources for College Pitching programs/coaches

Not easy to do but here is what I should have done. Review recruiting class, look at how many of the pitchers other than top guy actually developed. How many get cut, pitch very little and have more or less same stats for their career. If just the top two guys seem to stick then coaching is suspect and not committed to kids. Coaches always say the kids didn't work, didn't commit to program yada yada. This isn't always the case!

Re: Research resources for College Pitching programs/coaches

biggestfan2018 ·
Thanks for the response. He is focused on his pitching but honestly I think the next 6 months will be telling. His offense has always been productive but never a slugger which may also inform demand. He is a pretty simple young man and works hard. He continues to say his only focus is to play at the most competitive level he is able. Of course high MLB draft would be his preference but D1 or even JUCO to a path seems open to him. We sat through an utterly depressing recruiting talk 2 years...

I like Bishop's comments about choosing the school first (assuming he can play baseball at that school) and then start digging in further to make the final decision. I don't think you will get some summarized article on a PC's coaching style so you have to take an indirect approach and maybe tailor it for exactly what you are looking for. Some folks look as players drafted, but that may not tell the whole story and may be an indicator of top nothch recruiting as opposed to development.

Thank you for the perspective. You know it just might not be the right question I am asking then. I have seen the movement of coaches but don't think I put that in the overall perspective but that makes a ton of sense which goes back to keeping a good focus on the actual school and not just the baseball program. That is such a tough one with a kid who seems to have a one track mind. Thanks again!

That is true to a point, IMO. I do think you should look at the whole class and see who is playing but look at classes above and below as well. You should, also, look at multiple years of a class. I'll give you a reference from my son's college. Reality is that 8-9 pitchers get any significant innings in a year (say more than 40 innings). Each year my son's team (this is his third year of college) had 15 pitchers on roster. In short terms that is the best 2-3 of each class getting innings.

Biggestfan2018, So, I would look at this from the college or pitching coaches perspective. What would they be looking for? Sure your son projects to mid to high 80s with a potential upside to 90 by the time he gets to college...best case scenario. Velocity is important but there are many other factors that come into play for potential college pitchers. For example, I'd be looking at his control, secondary & tertiary pitches and movement. These are the things that separate pitchers at...

biggestfan, Here are a couple of things you need to consider in your search. It doesn't matter how you feel about your sons ability, he needs an independent evaluation to see what direction to take. I am not talking about a camp, but rather a scouting service that compares, rates and ranks your son with other 2018s across the country. What division would be a good fit. Perfect Game would be a good example. Don't forget about how important grades are in the equation. Keep in mind that most...

As a parent that will likely be paying for all or part of college my home state is where I'd like to see him but he has a pull to the east and southeast because his older sister lives in Virginia near DC and he had the opportunity to sit with a recent graduate of George Washington University that played all 4 years and take yoga...

If he wants to get drafted or Play at a good D1 he Needs more Velo. Does his Body have room for projection? how tall and big is he? if he is weak and lanky he can grow more than a guy who is short and strong. if he has projection than maybe a Velo program like driveline could help him. but if his max potential is 85-86 he likely would be better off playing at a good D2 or D3 or maybe a weaker D1 program.

biggestfan2018 , Your son sounds similar to my son in many ways. He is not tall (6'1"), was a contact pitcher who could carve up college hitters. One of the things he learned very quickly is that unless you are throwing 95+ you won't be blowing it by college hitters....unless you set up pitches. There are recruiting coaches at showcases and events that recognize sequencing, control, command and value it highly. My son was an afterthought by a couple ACC and SEC schools. While my son was...

Biggestfan --- a TON of great advice has already been given. We too are from the Bay Area and with a 2017 LHP. We just finished two years of outreach and effort to find a home for him in college. Like your son, ours has academics that are just a tick below Ivy. He too sits low 80s (this past summer) with his fastball and pitches to contact and has a great secondary and an ok third pitch. Also we played in a super competitive travel program and for a good high school system/league. What we...
