I'm a senior from NY who used to play baseball. Now that I hit my growth spurt, I'm a tad pissed that I quit a couple of years ago. I used to pitch and play outfield, and my arm was always very strong. Unfortunately, I quit due to loss of love for the game, but now that I'm picking it up again, I think I may have had a chance at a top LAC for baseball if I kept with it.
So... my stats are as follows:
I have an 89.5 weighted GPA on my weird scale. My guidance counselor says it's not terrible. No rank. 34 ACT and 553 AP tests along with 730/700 subject tests. My academic index is approximately 219-222, depending on how my GPA is recalculated. So I assume I could probably get into an Ivy as a recruited athlete?
With that being said… is there any place for me? I haven't been gunned in a few years, but I'd like to think I throw mid-high 70s, and I could probably touch low-mid 80s off a mound with proper warmup. I throw about 75 off flat ground with no warmup, and can long toss about 280-300 feet at this point. I did not play in HS due to me being cut freshman year and having other EC commitments during that time, so it's not like I have exposure… or experience either. Is this just a dream? I'm curious tbh.
