Three central Ohio's top pitchers, all high school juniors, have committed to play for OUr Bobcats.

* Lichtenauer of Licking Valley. Pitched 3 shutout innings with 3 Ks in Valley's tourney loss last week.

* Andrew Endres of Hilliard Davidson. Gave up 2 runs in 6 innings last week as Davidson beat higher seed New Albany last week.

* Landtiser of Pickerington Central. Threw 7 shutout innings with 12 Ks in tourney win last week. I saw him pitch earlier in the year against Newark. Radar had him at low- to mid-80s fastball with tough-to-hit off-speed pitches. Pitched 8.1 shutout innings with Newark winning in 10 innings, 1-0.

Endres and Landtiser's teams are still alive in state tourney. They are teammates during summer travel ball season.

I pose this as a question in the title because who knows if Ohio baseball coach will still be around when they're ready to sign as high school seniors.

I hope so. Unfortunately most the pitchers we bring in have a similar background. Getting college lineups out is a whole 'nother ball game.

My son's team faced 2 of those 3 teams this season but they did not pitch that day. Hope we can catch 1 or 2 of these guys next year so my son (also a Junior) can get a crack at a Bobcat commit.

What high school, Andrew. My son, a junior, is on the Newark team but missed the entire season with a shoulder injury.

Worthington Kilbourne. We lost to you 9-6 a few weeks ago with a collapse in the 6th inning. I also have a freshman playing JV.

Committed and signed are two totally different things, especially in college baseball.

Especially when the coach is on the hot seat, which I've heard is the case.

Curious what your thinking is on this? In my experience, the large majority of commits end up signing, especially at the mid-major level. I'm not sure baseball has the funding to offer much NIL to steal a kid but that is something I have zero experience in so I could be way off on that.

In my day, scholarship was essentially NIL. Typically the school that ponies up the larger % of scholarship is going to win the bid on a recruit. Most offers end up being 25-50% with maybe 1 kid on the team getting a full ride. Times have changed so I have no idea what this looks like these days but I know the scholarship allowance is still at 11.9 or whatever ridiculous number is has been.

It is fascinating that the trends are going in opposite directions at the MLB level versus NCAA. MLB is worrying about finding ways to boost offense while NCAA is wondering how they slow it down.

They need to slow it down, when you have 30 runs scored in a game, it’s more like adult beer league softball than competitive athletics.

I wonder if weekday games alter the numbers. A lot of teams use that as pitching practice, but still have their top lineups hitting. Johnny Wholestaff throwing in mismatch weekday games get into the double-digits regularly.

Not sure we got much out of our “pitching practice”.

Too many games, not enough quality pitchers. This is true at both the high school and college level.
