Here is our situation, need some advice. Our son is currently a sophomore on the JV team as a pitcher and 1b. He pitched Thursday night a complete game 2-hitter, 11K against the strongest team we will face all year, and the varsity got clubbed 12-0 with no pitching (all varsity pitchers graduated). Seems as though he will be on JV this year and next, because varsity is carrying 20 players, of which 8 are pitchers. Our varsity coach has us, although our son has all the talent to pitch at the varsity level, I don't want to bring him up because he is young (15)and don't want to ruin his confidence. I don't know if he can handle the pressure. Even though his pitchers currently on his roster have no varsity experience and he really doesn't know if they can handle the pressure either. He says he is maybe gonna bring him up if things go bad, and our son has a couple of good outings on JV. We are torn because we want what is best for our son, and don't know if playing on JV all year and pitching everyweek is the best or going to varsity and pitching maybe three times because of the number of pitchers on the team. Same can be said for next year, because there is only one pitcher who is a senior this year. Maybe it is parents wearing the "rose colored glasses", but our son is clearly better than all varsity pitchers currently on the roster, even the coach has said so, but he is afraid of his age and ability to handle the pressure. He definetly isn't being challenged at the JV level. We have come to the conclusion that next year is gonna be alot of the same, because now he would be a varsity pitcher with no experience, and all the pitchers who are on varsity this year, will be returning, and our son won't see much action again next year. Do we wait until his senior year to see if things shake loose? Or look for another program? Any help will be much appreciate, our son is already frustrated with the whole situation. Even all the varsity players tell him, he should be up there pitching, which doesn't help with the frustration level. Thanks.
