East Catholic High School lefty pitcher Frank Mozzicato from Manchester, Connecticut Has Thrown 4 No
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports
East Catholic High School lefty pitcher Frank Mozzicato from Manchester, Connecticut has casually pitched 4 straight no-hitters IN A ROW..
quote:

After a cancelled 2020 season, Mozzicato entered the year absent from MLB.com’s Draft rankings but catapulted to No. 51 by mid-May. The southpaw, who’s a couple weeks shy of 18, already has a 60-grade curveball (which he’s been throwing with the same grip since he was 11 or 12), a fastball that’s ticked up to around 91-93 mph and a promising changeup.

“The problem [his freshman year] is that … his curveball … would bite a lot but land behind the plate. They’d call it a ball because he almost overmatched some of the J.V.-type umps,” Fiori said. “He had to make it a little bit loopy to make it a strike, and he would still throw it because he wanted to be successful.”

That is nothing. I bet he could not fake a soccer kick with his right foot and boot it high with his left - then blow kisses to the camera. Signed, the OT soccer lovers.

Solid unis by mew balance. Didn't know they had gotten into the uniform game.

not that big of a deal. There's always a few high school pitchers who are borderline professionally good, and they're playing against mostly guys who can't make high school all conference. I played 2x in high school against the #1 pitcher in the country who played major league the next year.

Frank is a surprisingly normal name. Would have thought it would have been a little more Denham Springsey.

Someone should inform Baseball America not to film from directly behind the plate.

The runner on second during the first at bat was hit by a pitch
