Thomas "T.J." Chism

"Chism's numbers aren't pretty (1-3, 7.80 in 30 innings), and some scouts have seen him work around 85-86 mph and get hit hard. Others have seen him much better in relief, working in the 92-93 range with a promising slider. Chism is a good athlete with a quick arm, and some scouts project him to throw in the mid-90s with an average slider if he can make a couple of adjustments in pro ball."

Thats quite a range in velocity there.

5'10" lefty throwing 85-86 with a 7.80 ERA is ugly. I'm assuming our scouts are the ones who project him to the mid-90's...

First Story about Chism

"La Salle University junior lefthander T.J. Chism from Sun Valley High was selected in the 32d round by the New York Mets. His father, Tom, played briefly with the Baltimore Orioles.

"I don't think this has hit me yet," Chism said. "I am so excited I can't even eat.""

If it hasn't even hit him yet and he's already so excited that he can't eat, I would hate to see what happens when it does hit him! :lol:

Seems like every one of the batters he faced has hit him...
