RHP JT Blackwood (2022) is just another quality arm the Hartselle Tigers can put on the mound, as he was ultra-impressive on Friday. Blackwood entered the game with two on and one out in the bottom of the 6th inning with the Tigers clinging to a 4-3 lead. The junior RHP quickly got back to back K’s to thwart the rally. Blackwood did allow a leadoff single in the 7th inning but then struck out the next three hitters he faced. Working from a high ¾ slot, the junior showed quick arm action while locating the fastball to both sides at 86-87 mph, while bumping 88 mph twice. While the fastball can be termed “electric”, it is not his best pitch. The breaking ball is devastating and shows very late action with sharp bite. The pitch disappears in the lower half of the zone and every hitter that offered swing well over the top of the pitch. A definite swing and miss pitch. A big time arm that seems to have just exploded on the scene. A dominant performance.
