The Premier Baseball Social Network for Players, Coaches, Scouts, and Umpires
HERE IS MINE...
My story is a fairy tale if you must say.
I never played high school baseball because i was afraid of failure of not making the team and i was a late bloomer compared to the other players. After high school i starting getting bigger and wanted to help my parents out with paying for college so i walked on my freshman year at a small school in tampa. After my freshman year with no scholarship the coach offered me a little scholarship for my soph year. Come to find that going into my junior year the baseball program was to be shut down so i sent out my stats to other schools in florida mainly naia schools and attended southeastern university in lakeland florida. My junior year i gained some attention from scouts throwing high 80's to low 90's. Both jun and sen year i was not drafted. I was down i the dumps and then took a whole year from ball and tryed out for independent pro teams and made a team for spring training. I didnt even make the openning day roster and was realeased soon to find myself signing in the pecos league which is another lower independent league. I had a good hlf season with them and made the allstar team to only throw 9 pitches infront of a scout and signed 2 days later with the Arizona Dbacks. Baseball is a funny and crazy sport that has its adventures!!! Trust your stuff and never say never... God Bless,,, Dios te Bendiga
