Mississippi State baseball signee Jarred Holloway, a lefthanded pitcher who played for Russellville (ARK) High School, is shown pitching for the Midland Redskins, one of the top pre-college summer baseball teams in the nation, in this ScoutTV video presentation.
During this July 1st victory over the Dallas Tigers, a game played in Atlanta, Georgia at the Georgia Tech baseball stadium, Jarred, a Paul Maholm
look-a-like in his body shape, allowed 1 run on 3 hits (all singles) and 3 walks while striking out 5 in four innings of work. In addition to the 5 Ks, his 12 outs consisted of 4 infield ground outs, 2 flyouts and a runner being called out after missing a bag while running the bases. Of his strikeouts, 4 were on fastballs and 1 on a curve. Of the 78 pitches (40 strikes, 38 balls) he threw in the 4 innings, 59 were fastballs, 17 were curveballs and the other 2 were either a slider or a changeup. His fastball velocity topped out at 94 once with a low of 86 twice. The two 86 fastballs that he threw were in his last inning of work. During his first inning of work, his fastball was consistently in the 89 to 92 range, topping out at 94. His second inning of work he consistently threw in the 89 to 90 range, topping out at 91. The third inning, he was consistently throwing in the 88 to 89 range while topping out at 91. During his final inning, he was consistently hitting 87 to 88, topping out at 89.
Jarred Holloway, who is now 4-0 for Midland, has now thrown 20 innings, allowing 2 runs (both earned) on 8 hits and 8 walks while striking out 36.
In his video I included most of the pitches that hit 90 miler per hour or better.
