We graduated our two best pitchers and the cupboard was kinda empty, so I'm a pitcher now, lol. We were being gunned during bullpens and I was the second hardest thrower behind a guy going to MSU on scholarship. Not too shabby.
a year and a half, so....yay!
I might be exaggerating a little, I think I have a pretty good handle on what i'd like to do short-term...it's really only when you get me talking about "what's your 10 year plan" that I start going in a trillion directions.
Always wanted to work in the FBI / CIA, mainly because of movies making it look cool. Parents wanted me to do Chemical Engineering because it was similar to what my dad did and summer jobs working at the company he was at interested me (hazardous waste processing stuff). I knew computers were the right profession for me though by middle school when I was downloading pirated games over a modem and was fascinated by it all. Did Computer Engineering at Michigan and have been working in the field since..
Be a professional MMA fighter, and a scout for the Giants. Accomplished one so far.....
I'm going to assume scout for the Giants....
So am I the only person on this board who was a pitcher and didn't mess up his arm?
Well I messed up my arm pitching when I was 13ish, but I'm fine pitching now (senior year). Does that count?
Always wanted to be a professional hockey player for the Red Wings. I still play two or three times a week but now I'm in business school and will hopefully work in the front office for the Wings eventually.
Dream job now is AD at Michigan, though.
1. I wanted to be the next American after Billy Mills to win the Olympics in the 10k.
2. Wanted to run my own business
3. get married and have a functional family
Possibly. I matured early and had a dick of a coach who used me way too often and didn't monitor what I was throwing. Tore two muscles in my rotator cuff when I was 13 and never threw above 75 again. Sucks, but c'est la vie. Were your coaches careful with you?
In terms of pitch count, not really. I once threw 190 pitches in a single day (in a semi final and championship game in the 8th grade). However, I didn't start throwing offspeed pitches until I entered high school which I think helped a lot. Even in high school at least 80% of my pitches were either 4/2 seam fastballs or changeups, and I threw a slider instead of a curve. I was also 6'4, 210 by the time I was a junior which might have helped. My senior year I ended up throwing 77 innings.
Ah. Yeah, my coach had me throwing curves in middle school, and god bless my parents, but they didn't know anything about how best to develop a young pitcher, so they deferred to the coach.
Best of luck D.
I never decided what I wanted to be when I was young. When I actually decided, I wanted to be an electrical engineer (around 13, I know ... boring). I ended up in insurance as an underwriter and then got moved to IT/Operations for a company that writes over 150 million in premium reporting directly to our president and can't complain.

I'm from Indiana. Playing in the NBA was my only dream.
Softball is an awesome groovy sport. You play limited or unlimited arch?
As for the topic I always wanted to be an NFL scout. .

Professional Soccer Player was always my dream until my senior year of high school..
Well this isn't very flattering for myself but granted I was probably 4 or 5. I wanted to be a garbage man so I could watch the garbage get crushed in the trucks! Shoot for the stars eh!? hahaha
No, I wish.
Soooo, J Wil is officially the last guy on this board I'd mess with.
And then you discovered girls...
Ive been think about what to post in this thread, and to be honest, when I was young, all i wanted to be able to do when i got older was to bang hot chicks.
As a kid I wanted to do something in geology, specifically volcanoes. Recently landed a dream job doing this...
Limited, 6-12. Unlimited is, IMO, just stupid. You end up trying to hit balls that are pretty much coming straight down. I knew a guy who could put practically a 30-foot arc right on the heart of the plate, and it was just painful to watch.
