I wanted to dig a little deeper into signee Paul Young's pitching stats bc he came on strong toward the end of his JC team's season. Pro scouts saw him and the Indians drafted him. Several colleges offered him but he chose us. He played for Central Alabama CC.
May 13--Shelton State CC
9 IP 5 H 2 ER 6 BB 9 K | Central won the game 9-2. This was his first 9 innings pitched probably in his life since he has said he pitched little in HS. Up to this point he had only pitched 27.1 innings.
May 25--Palm Beach State College
1 IP 1 K Save | Pitched the 9th for the save.
May 27--Midland College
9 IP 11 H 4 ER 1 BB 10 K | Central again won the game 11-4. His second complete ballgame in two weeks.
June 1--Palm Beach State College
9 IP 7 H 2 ER 2 BB 5 K | Central won the Natl Championship for JC's 7-3.
So in less than 21 days, Young pitched 3 complete 9 inning ball games and won all 3 plus picked up a save in another game.
27 IP 23 H 8 ER 9 BB 24 K as a starter. The reason I took his last few games is bc he got better as he started pitching more. His first few innings he was learning how to pitch and once he did learn, he excelled. This is the reason why he was drafted and was highly coveted by SEC and ACC schools.
Once he starts training more as a pitcher, he will become even better.
