Here's the scenario, there is a kid who is a big kid who hits well and has a strong arm. Throws across the diamond low 80's, pitches in the mid to upper 80's. Strong hitter, but struggles on defense, hasn't played 3rd for very long. Some college coaches have expressed interest as a pitcher, mostly NAIA and D3 and they want to see him pitch this summer. High school coach likes his bat, and has said he will not pitch him (big school, deep in pitching). High School coach also feels strongly that all players should play for his summer team. There is also a club team who would put him at the top of the rotation as a pitcher and have him pitch all summer. Father is advising son to play for High School team, and see where the cards fall. The kid will likely get some opportunities to play college ball if he continues to develop his pitching. Kid will not get any opportunities as a 3rd baseman. Just wondering if I should step in and advise the father to let his son play club. Kid has expressed interest to play college ball, and will go to college regardless of baseball. Any thought here?
