Who is your favorite pitcher and why?
John Smoltz, because he knows how to pitch in pressure situations and has a nasty slider and splitter, not to mention a pretty nice moving fastball.
More About Me:
I have been around baseball since the age of 9. I started playing in the in-house league. Back then there were no travel teams like there are today. After in-house league, I played Babe Ruth, American Legion, Middle School and High School before moving onto Junior College Baseball. After my 2 years at juco, I came back home and played 4 years of Semi-Pro Ball (ages 18+). In the semi-pro league, I was invited to a Private Try-Out by the Chicago Cubs in Wrigley Field. I never was signed, yet only one player out of 150, so I don't feel so bad, but it was a great experience just to be there. After my semi-pro days, I played 6 or 7 years of slow-pitched softball...that's all I'm gonna say about that....we all know softball guy and I'm definitely not him! Now I have a 6 year old, so I'm getting him ready for baseball.
