I read somewhere that in the HR contest at Tropicana, they did try with wood bats. No one hit a HR but Bryce did hit one off the wall.
I mean SI is a little late but I'd disagree with anyone that is saying he's just a high schooler with a metal bat.
And really I disagree with iltat on the opinion coming from the fact that you've played at a high level that you'd be able to come to that conclusion. You're not the only person who's played baseball at a high level. Also, he's most likely not going to be drafted as a pitcher so whether or not he can pound a low strike zone doesn't matter one bit. But my bet is that he's been able to face that level of competition, read the first article linked when he was 15
I'm not anointing him as the king, but I'm saying you can't just write him off because of inexperience.
2008 All World Team
Awards for the Most Homeruns Hit (4) and the Most RBIs (16)
2008 USA Baseball 16U Championships
Team who just brought home gold
in the Pan Am Games in Mexico
I guess being one of the best players in the World at the age of 15 and playing for the 16U team is pretty easy competition for him. He should be playing in the majors now!
