Getting Tyler Wade redux vibes from Volpe, but I know nothing. It'll be cool if they get the Delbarton double with Leiter at 38 though...
I like it.Wow, that's crazy! I had to check what grade 9 year olds are typically in, 4th grade!!!
NY seems to be focusing on lefty pitchers this draft like they did catchers last one, 3 of the first 6 picks are LHPs.
I mean, how can this be true? I can't believe a 9 year old hit 2 homers off of 70mph pitches.Just learned that my son once threw BP at a clinic to Anthony Volpe and to Jack Leiter. Volpe took my boy deep twice.
At the time, my son was a good (for NYC) high school pitcher and he said he was throwing the BP in the mid-70s.
And at the time, Volpe was 9 years old. Nine.
My son still calls it one of the most remarkable things he ever saw.
They will have to, their entire pool is basically committed to Jasson Dominguez (see separate thread) and they are linked to another top 20 guy also.The international signing period begins on July 2, yes? Any word on whether or not the Yankees plan to trade for more pool money, as they did last year?
