    74, it sure sounds like it will be fun to watch it all play out.

    People who have seen Crisp pitch speak glowingly of him and word is he has 3 pitches he controls nicely.

    Another newcomer is David Leuthje and there are a few other promising frosh.

    Fall practice will be interesting to follow and we'll have to wait till January for Crisp as well as Fabian to show up.

    Sully is definitely keeping the excitement level high for Gator baseball.

    Anyone have a better idea who they are looking to be the N.O.T.Y. since Fall ball is over with?

    On another thread it seemed like people were saying that throwing too many non fast balls along with pitching multiple times a week in high school can lead to TJ surgery. Did I understand that right?

    5220–

    Just my humble opinion but I would have to say that scenario would put the pitcher in the high probability category—

    *they* probably need to publish such perceptions. Use as guidelines. Even Codify them. ( like what they do now with concussion protocols) I.e. Don’t wreck arms at a young age.
