Well, I’m not actually sure that they’re prospects. They’re just a couple of high school pitchers who have committed to major baseball programs in Louisiana. But if they are prospects, I’m guessing Keith Law’s head asploded after reading this:
LSU signee Mitch Sewald started for Rummel; Emerson Gibbs, a Tulane signee, for Jesuit.
Of those 501 pitches needed to decide the victory, the two young arms had accounted for 347 of them.
Sewald pitched 10 innings allowing one run on two hits. He recorded 10 strikeouts and threw 154 pitches. Gibbs pitched 15 innings allowing a single run on six hits. He recorded 13 strikeouts and accounted for 193 pitches.
RIP: those guy’s rotator cuffs and UCLs.
