"Who came in second?
and Ole Miss were my final two."
When will Matt sign his LOI?
"I have not signed yet, but my verbal commit took place on Sunday. I wil probably get it sent in on Monday."
The 6' 4", 190 pounder had an unusual
fast growth spurtlast year which caused a stress fracture in his back. This caused
him to miss the entire summer and fall league ball, where rising seniors are spotted
by the college recruiters.
"It did not bother me too bad. I knew if I kept pitching to my ability I would get a look sooner or later. I had a lot of colleges come on me hard after they saw me pitch this year. I missed a 1/3 of my junior year, and the whole summer and fall. But I am feeling pretty strong again."
It is no small wonder he got some looks as he is currently 5-0 with a 1.70 ERA. EBC starts their season later than most southern high schools, as they have only played in 14 games.
What does Tracy max out?
Pitch that needs the most improving?
"I am throwing harder. I am still in the recovery stage. I am just trying to get back to full strength."
What makes him so effective?
"I am a pitcher, a thrower. I work both sides of the plate. I change speeds a lot. Like I said, the change up is my best pitch. I can throw that 90% of the time."
