Moving on up.

Well guys it seems that I may have a chance the make it into the Detroit Tigers baseball team.
Yes you read right

I was pitching a couple fast balls and knuckle balls to my dad at a BB field and someone was watching and liked what they saw. They advised the Detroit Tigers farm league try outs coming up this summer. Wish me luck y'all.

Fantastic! Good job, Anglewitch!

What was this gentleman? he a scout for the Detroit farm league, or something else? Did you exchange contact info?

Not that you haven't already thought of this... I'd recommend looking him up online, confirm and find out who he is. If he's legit, then reach out to him very soon, while he remembers you, it'll show him you're serious. Have him give you contact info to whoever, or whatever office, that can contact to formally setup the tryout, get info and advice.

You could try to find a local who's done AAA to majors and work with them, make the most of the opportunity.

No. He wasn't a scout. He used to pitch for the Elizabethton Twins hoping to make it into the Minnesota Twins but he damaged his rotary cuff or something like that. He liked what he saw and advised to go to the seasonal try outs for Minnesota or Detroit.

Even if I don't make it, I'll still have a good time and try again next time. The guy said he could have been wrong but he clocked my fast ball at 90 mph.

I want to play baseball again. I'm so excited I'm shaking while I'm texting this.

Just got my new Mizuno ball glove. It's a beauty. Only thing is for some reason even though description said baseball glove it turns out to be a softball glove. It will work though. Pretty comfortable.
