Vince knew he was a good pitcher. He had proven it at the highest level of college baseball. Heck, he was an All-American! But at 5’10” and sitting 88-90 with his fastball, pro teams didn’t seem interested.
An average person would have given up, gotten a “real job,” and lived the rest of their lives reminiscing about the glory days of an illustrious college career.
But Vince is not an average person.
In November of 2021, he reported to The ARMory and asked, “What do I need to do to play professional baseball?”
We did our research.
Looked up and analyzed his pitch data.
Called coaches who knew him.
Spoke with former teammates.
Our assessment was that if he wanted to kick the door down, he needed to add 5 mph to his fastball, improve his breaking ball and develop a better change-up.
