Heritage: Bob Kraft's arm doin' just fine...
By Robert Przybylo
A little dated but wanted to make sure it got in:
He’s still pretty small for being such a dominant pitcher, but that isn’t stopping Heritage Hall’s Bob Kraft from achieving success.
Kraft threw a complete game in Oklahoma’s 6-3 win against Texas in the Junior Sunbelt Classic on Sunday in McAlester.
Kraft, a left-hander, was 8-1 last year a 0.84 ERA and struck out 105 last year for Heritage Hall. He was a reserve on The Oklahoman’s All-State team and was first team Little All-City.
He won’t be a member of the Oklahoma’s Heartland Classic team next week, but he should be one of the top pitching recruits for 2011.
This summer will be very interesting for him. I don’t know if you can make someone grow (OK, you can’t), but I think the focus should be on getting his strength up.
Right now, he’s solid for a HS pitcher. But if the arm and legs can be even stronger, obviously his future would become even more brighter than it already is.
For whatever it’s worth, I enjoyed watching him pitch this last year. Just think it’s important to build off of last year, and I’m sure he realizes that.
