While it seems like we had a very good day hitting our pitching had a lot to be desired. Took a scroll through our pitching stats and man, top three guys who have thrown the most pitches for us have ERA's ranging from 6.75 to 11.50, and WHIP's ranging from 1.39 to 2.50.

Those ERAs would not be good in Little League.

There weren't just sluggers on that team, there were some pretty good pitchers, too. Can you remember any of the pitchers' names? We could use a coach as good as Bob Wren, that's for sure.

Dave Tobik, pitcher. He had like 7 or 8 years in MLB. I lived in Detroit area and he was with the Tigers 5 years or so in late 70's.

On the plus side, Cole Williams was 5 for 5 with a HR and a BB. Damn. He is 8 for 8 in 2 games and 2 for 20 in all the others.

Oh yes, from a slightly earlier part of the Wren Era there was Dave Wickersham, who also pitched for a while with the Tigers. I saw him pitch in a game against the Chicago White Sox in 1965 in Comiskey Park. At one point I remember Wren was in the top three among college baseball coaches in terms of the number of his ex-players who were in the Big Leagues.

Losing Rob Smith has clearly had an impact on the pitching staff. He had a great resume as a pitching coach prior to Ohio. He demanded excellence out of the bullpen and simply would not accept anything less. If you couldn't get it done in practice you simply could not be trusted to enter a game. I heard that probably 1000x in my 3 years as a player for him.

Coach Moore knows baseball as much as any coach in the country but the one area he lacks in is developing pitchers. His strength is developing infielders and hitters. If I had to guess, he's probably pretty hands off and relegates that to the pitching coach.

Interesting. Thanks for the insight!

News flash… Pitching wins games at every level.
As you can tell by my screen name, I was around during the best years of Ohio baseball. In fact, I played freshman baseball with Mike Schmidt and I was on the varsity a couple years as a bench warmer and batting practice pitcher. I like to think I helped make Mike Schmidt the hitter that he was. The pitchers back then as I remember that took us to the College World Series were Eddie Robbins and Bill Claus. John Morlan was an outfielder with a canon for an arm. I believe he signed with Pittsburgh as a pitcher.

This reminds me that I once took credit, in a joking manner, for Todd Snyder's pass catching ability. Todd was four years younger than I was, and when I was in high school and he in junior high we used to play pickup football games on the top of the Highland Avenue Reservoir. Because I was one of the older guys playing, I would often play QB. When Todd won the award as AP Lineman of the Week in Ohio's 35-35 tie with Minnesota 1969, I saw him on campus and told him that his passing catching ability was honed by learning to catch my wobbly and often oft-target passes. He sort of smiled and laughed, probably just to humor me.

Todd caught something like three or four TD passes in that game with Minnesota. Todd's position was called split end in those days and, therefore, he was classified as a lineman. Today, he would be considered a WR.

[So that neither SBH nor his soulmate bobcatsquared say that I'm making this up, I better explain why I was on campus the same year that Todd was when we had this difference in age. I had two years of active duty in the U.S. Navy between my sophomore and junior years, and then when I graduated with my BSJ in 1968 I went to O$U for my master's degree; the following year I was back at OHIO doing additional graduate work at OHIO. So, Todd was a senior and I was a graduate student.]
