Transcripts

00:00

I was recently invited to pitch at

00:01

Dodger spring training camp but not for

00:03

the Dodgers against the Dodgers I was

00:05

part of Team Asian Breeze and the game

00:07

was on a backfield against some minor

00:08

Leaguers now I was originally told that

00:10

there was no video allowed during the

00:12

game so I didn't bring my Vlog camera or

00:14

any cameras but when I got there there's

00:16

a ton of people videoing with their

00:17

phones and some TV cameras out there so

00:18

what I've done is I've gathered all the

00:19

footage that I can from the day and I'm

00:21

going to walk you through what I was

00:22

thinking and how I saw the day through

00:24

my eyes so let's get into it now when I

00:26

first got to the complex I walked

00:27

through the same roads that the fans

00:29

walk through to get to the field so I

00:31

got to see a lot of Dodger fans on the

00:32

way there which is really cool so before

00:34

I even got to the field I stopped and

00:36

sign for 20 or 30 minutes for a lot of

00:37

the fans that were there there was

00:38

Dodger Bower jerseys there there was

00:41

Yokohama jerseys there there were Dodger

00:43

bobbleheads and Trevor Bower cards and

00:45

Trevor Bower bobbleheads and all sorts

00:47

of cool stuff so it was really cool to

00:48

see that from the fans and there's

00:49

hundreds of people out there normally

00:51

for a backfield game in spring training

00:53

there's like 10 people maybe 15 people

00:56

most of those being family of people

00:57

that are playing or maybe a couple

00:59

Scouts for the organization but there

01:01

were hundreds of Dodger fans out there

01:02

so it was cool to see everyone come out

01:04

to support me and to watch me Pitch I

01:05

appreciate each and every one of you

01:07

thank you for the support made the day a

01:08

lot of fun so after signing for 20 or 30

01:10

minutes I went to warm up for the game

01:11

eventually got over to the bullpen and

01:14

this was right next to the walkway for

01:15

the fans so there's a bunch of people

01:16

lined up watching my Bullpen felt pretty

01:19

cool it actually reminded me of pitching

01:20

in Seattle where the bullpen is right

01:22

next to the stands and the fans can just

01:23

look straight at you and you're on the

01:25

same eye level with them pretty cool

01:27

feeling I always like warming up in

01:28

Seattle because of that so it made the

01:30

uh warm-up process a little bit more fun

01:32

also it's was really cool to see so many

01:33

of the young Dodger minor Leaguers come

01:34

out to watch the game normally in spring

01:36

training for a backfield game if you're

01:39

not playing you don't go to it you go

01:40

you get your warm-ups done you get your

01:42

throwing done for the day you get your

01:43

recovery done and you go home only the

01:46

people that are playing in the game

01:47

would show up but there is definitely

01:48

more people there at the game than we're

01:50

playing they just came out to watch I

01:52

got to see my friend Alex vessia I got

01:53

to give him a hug and talk to him a

01:54

little bit he actually ended up pitching

01:55

in the game which is pretty cool I I got

01:57

to see Ronan cop who trains with me in

01:59

the offseason got to see some of the

02:00

Dodger players that I know and actually

02:02

a cool thing happened on my way from the

02:03

bullpen on the first base side to the

02:05

third base Dugout before the game I

02:07

actually saw one of the players I faced

02:08

in the cape a couple years back I was

02:11

pitching there in the summer he was

02:12

playing for Brewster at the time uh now

02:14

he's playing for the Dodgers which is

02:15

pretty cool to see and I asked him what

02:17

pitches do you want to face today what

02:19

pitch you want to strike out oner fair

02:21

play and he said fast balls but none of

02:22

that slid step BS so I made sure to look

02:24

at his number he's number 35 and I put

02:26

in my head okay number 35 wants all the

02:29

slide steps actually have four new slide

02:31

steps I have a quick pitch I have a mid

02:33

leg kick a full leg kick and a pause leg

02:36

kick so I made sure to whip all those

02:37

out against him and I actually faced him

02:39

in the first inning so we'll get to that

02:40

about in a second but let's see how the

02:42

first inning went I'll walk you through

02:43

what pitches I threw and what I was

02:44

thinking in the moment first pitch of

02:46

the game My catcher calls cutter which

02:48

is awesome I'm not just going to give

02:49

you a first pitch lazy fast ball down

02:51

the middle to hit fact that a brand new

02:52

catcher called cutter first pitch I was

02:54

like right on board with

02:57

him but I did miss a little bit High

02:59

which makes it at 1 and0 so going into

03:00

the game I really just didn't want to

03:02

walk people I wanted to make sure I was

03:03

throwing strikes this is my first actual

03:05

game action this spring now most of

03:07

these guys have already been throwing

03:08

live BP and they've been throwing on

03:10

mounds and cleats and had some game

03:12

action a lot of the hitters have already

03:13

faced live pitching and been playing

03:15

games I've just been throwing in my gym

03:17

in shoes against Eric so I wasn't sure

03:19

exactly how I was going to go so that's

03:21

why my goal was just make sure to throw

03:22

strikes throw my best stuff over the

03:24

plate and force the guys to swing so I'm

03:26

behind one and0 in the count so I'm

03:27

going to throw a fast ball make sure I

03:29

get back into the count but I mixed in

03:31

one of my new leg kicks this is the

03:33

Quick Pitch and before I take a step

03:34

back like I normally would I slide my

03:36

left foot forward and just go straight

03:37

into my delivery so this is intended to

03:39

mess with the hitter's timing a little

03:40

bit it's 1 I think he's probably looking

03:42

for a fast ball so I decided to mix in a

03:44

little wrinkle on the timing and

03:45

unfortunately I missed below the zone so

03:46

now we're two and0 which means I need to

03:48

throw a strike oh fall tanks so I go

03:52

back to my normal leg kick I throw a

03:53

fast ball middle of the plate and he

03:55

pulls it way foul luckily for me not a

03:58

homer so we're back to two in one now I

04:00

didn't know this at the time but the

04:01

slowest fast ball I threw on the day was

04:03

96 I was sitting 97 998 I touched 99

04:06

three times if I would have known that I

04:08

probably would have thrown more fast

04:10

balls I figured in the moment I was

04:11

probably throwing like 95 96 I felt

04:13

pretty good but I didn't think I was

04:14

throwing quite that hard the fact that

04:16

he got the head out on 97 and pulled 97

04:19

foul is a good indication of where he's

04:20

at timing wise so when I saw that I

04:22

decided to throw a cutter to one and I

04:24

didn't really think I had to be too fine

04:25

with it I just needed to throw it for a

04:27

strike and I figured it' be a rollover

04:28

or a ground ball Maybe a swing and miss

04:30

something along those

04:32

lines now that pitch was middle but to

04:34

his credit he took a 2-1 cutter and got

04:36

a solid line drive hit just a single but

04:39

not the best start to the day I'm not

04:40

worried about it though at this point

04:42

just figured I'd get the next guy maybe

04:43

roll a double play I did have a lefty

04:45

coming up which means my splitter is in

04:46

play really good ground ball pitch so

04:49

maybe I can roll a double play here

04:50

first pitch fast ball up and in get a

04:52

swing Miss which means this fat is off

04:53

to a good start now pitching in Japan I

04:55

did pick up a slide step which makes it

04:57

a lot harder to steal off me in the

04:58

middle it's a bad actually looked over

05:00

at the runner on first base and said hey

05:01

are you fast and he's like no I'm not

05:03

which I think he was lying to me because

05:05

he is leading off so he's got to be

05:07

somewhat quick second Pitch 01 I tried

05:09

to land a curveball but I ended up

05:10

bouncing it a little bit so we're 1-1 it

05:12

was a good pitch just not at the right

05:13

time maybe if I throw it 02 he swings

05:16

but not 01 so we're 1-1 now I need to

05:18

get ahead I got to get to one two give

05:20

myself a chance of a strikeout here so I

05:21

decided to throw a split I threw it

05:23

middle middle probably a pitch that

05:24

could get hit but he was out in front of

05:26

it swung over the top of it so we get to

05:27

one two and it gave me a good idea

05:30

throw that pitch again so I did but I

05:32

threw it a little bit too low and he

05:33

didn't swing at it but that's okay that

05:35

sets up the next pitch perfectly so if I

05:37

think about the sequence I've just gone

05:39

fast ball up and in he swung and missed

05:41

a splitter up and in that he swung at

05:43

thinking it was a fast ball and then it

05:44

died to go middle middle he was over the

05:46

top of it and out in front of it I then

05:47

threw a splitter that started at the

05:49

bottom of the zone and broke below the

05:50

zone that he didn't swing at so now it's

05:53

time for a fast ball at the bottom of

05:54

the zone that he thinks is the splitter

05:56

but it doesn't break and it catches the

05:57

bottom of the zone for strike three wo

06:01

now as soon as I let go of that pitch I

06:02

said yep because I knew I had executed

06:05

it before the ball even got to the plate

06:07

I knew as a strike the Umpire rang him

06:09

up so we're in a good spot here get our

06:10

first out of the inning double play

06:12

right now ends the inning but I'm not

06:13

going for double plays I'm here to

06:15

strike people out and I'm here to

06:16

entertain the fans so third hitter we

06:18

got a righty at the plate which means

06:19

I'm going to go with my normal righty

06:21

setup fast balls away Cutters away

06:23

sliders off the plate start with the

06:25

first pitch fast ball away strike come

06:27

back with a second Pitch cutter strike

06:29

so get to O2 real quick now it's time

06:31

for the nasty wipe out slider now I had

06:34

really good feel for all my pitches on

06:35

this day except for my slider and as you

06:37

can see I bounced that nowhere close to

06:39

the plate hitter doesn't even budge just

06:41

a really bad pitch also really hard

06:42

pitch for my catcher to block he did a

06:44

great job of keeping in front of him but

06:46

can't expect much more than that and the

06:47

runner advances to second base this is

06:49

where it got kind of interesting now

06:51

normally with a man on second base you'd

06:52

go through multiple signs with the

06:54

catcher but this is just an exhibition

06:56

game and I'm just here to have some fun

06:57

so I told my catcher to give only one

06:59

sign so the guy at second base probably

07:01

could have been relaying to The Hitter

07:02

exactly what pitch was coming which I

07:04

didn't care about cuz I was already

07:05

planning on telling the hitters

07:06

everything that I was throwing in future

07:08

Innings now this is a funny moment of

07:11

the game something that most of the fans

07:12

probably missed a couple picked up on it

07:14

cuz I could hear him saying oo when I

07:16

did it the runner's bouncing off a

07:18

second base trying to get me to pay

07:19

attention to him trying to fake like

07:20

he's going to steal the third so I just

07:22

looked at him and I gave him a little

07:23

head tilt like yeah go ahead go to third

07:25

do it what do you think go try he didn't

07:28

try to steal third at least until later

07:30

in the inning but that was just a little

07:31

bit of fun I was having with the runner

07:33

I honestly would have liked him to steal

07:34

third then he can't relay signs from

07:35

second and also puts a little bit more

07:37

pressure on me cuz now I can't even give

07:38

up a ball in play and I like that type

07:40

of situation it would have been one out

07:42

man on Third and I would have had to

07:43

strike two people out to get out of the

07:44

inning unfortunately though he didn't

07:46

take the bait so back to focusing on the

07:47

hitter we're in a one-w count I decided

07:49

to go with a slider I wanted to throw a

07:50

better one just get it slightly out of

07:52

the Zone maybe get a swing in a onew

07:54

count I have another pitch to waste and

07:55

if I miss with the slider I know I have

07:57

the comeback two scene that he'll freeze

07:58

on because just like the splitter he

08:00

sees the sliders break out of the Zone

08:02

if you see something that looks like

08:03

those he's going to read ball and the

08:05

ball's going to break back into the zone

08:07

so this is really a free pitch and if I

08:09

don't get him on this pitch I'll get him

08:10

on the next pitch I just can't throw

08:12

this one for a strike because he might

08:14

have a chance of hitting it so I didn't

08:15

get the slider close enough to the plate

08:16

to get a swing which means time for The

08:18

Comeback two seam and I absolutely

08:21

dotted this pitch this is a strike I

08:25

don't know what the empire was looking

08:26

at maybe I froze him too I mean just

08:28

look at the catcher GL it literally

08:30

doesn't move I just dot it and he set it

08:33

up as a strike right on the black

08:35

Perfect Pitch but we don't get the call

08:37

I kind of threw my head back and laughed

08:38

I heard someone say welcome to the real

08:40

world and I thought at the time that it

08:41

was someone from the Dodgers Dugout what

08:42

I found out later is it was actually

08:44

Eric Sim chirping me from the crowd real

08:46

life son it's different ball game either

08:48

way we don't get the call so now it's 3

08:50

and two and now I have to throw a strike

08:51

so we go fast ball in got a foul ball

08:53

off his foot now it's time for an off

08:54

speed pitch I decided to go with the

08:56

splitter and that was a nasty splitter I

08:57

didn't get it quite low enough for a

08:58

swinging Miss but but I had to throw it

09:00

for a strike and my poor catcher got hit

09:02

which not good I felt bad that stings

09:05

right on the inner thigh GH not

09:07

comfortable so now it's 3-2 the runner

09:09

tried to steal third on that foul ball

09:10

so now he's jumping off of the base

09:12

again so I give him another one a little

09:13

head tilt like hey go for it I actually

09:15

said to him go for it take third and

09:17

he's like nah and then I turned and

09:19

threw the pitch come back two seam right

09:21

at the bottom of the Zone this one

09:22

though I will say was about a ball width

09:24

below the Zone this one was definitely

09:26

lower than the two two pitch I thought

09:28

the two two was a strike but this one

09:29

was definitely a ball so good call by

09:31

the Umpire unfortunately we get a walk I

09:33

think if this was in the zone he

09:35

probably takes it I could have thrown a

09:36

little bit higher but now we're in a

09:38

little bit of trouble first and second

09:39

one out double play still gets me out of

09:41

it but not ideal so

09:43

far so we got the four hitter at the

09:45

plate he's a righty normally I'm going

09:46

Cutters away sliders away in this

09:48

situation but the catcher called

09:49

splitter and I was like you know what

09:51

it's pretty good today let me try it

09:52

let's see if we can get a little roll

09:53

over ball breaks in on him he's not

09:55

expecting it roll over to third double

09:56

play that was my thought ran a little

09:58

bit off the inside part of the plate for

09:59

ball one but still a pretty good pitch

10:01

and now it sets up all the stuff

10:02

breaking away from him so I can

10:04

definitely use that Miss so 1 I decided

10:06

to throw a for seamer at the top of the

10:07

Zone he actually gets the barrel to it

10:09

pretty well but pops it up so definitely

10:11

an

10:12

out or maybe not uh

10:15

okay Bases Loaded one out um how are we

10:20

going to wiggle out of this one that's

10:21

what I thought as soon as that ball

10:22

dropped and then I turned to see my

10:24

friend number 35 stepping into the box

10:26

and this is actually perfect if there's

10:28

guys on first and second with two two

10:29

outs I couldn't have given him slide

10:30

steps but with Bases Loaded I can go out

10:32

of the windup which means all four of my

10:34

leg kicks are in play and he already

10:36

told me that he doesn't like him so

10:37

guess what he's getting all the slide

10:41

steps first pitch we go with regular leg

10:44

kick let him get his timing that I'm

10:45

going to disrupt later cutter down and

10:47

in borderline pitch I think he caught

10:50

the black get the call from the Umpire

10:51

01 so now these guys timing with my

10:53

normal leg kick I decided to go with the

10:54

slide step fast ball but I pulled it

10:56

down so we're one in one I did see it

10:58

reaction afterwards and kind of gave a

11:00

little head tilt and was like shaking

11:01

his head at me so I know I have him

11:03

right where I want him one one I know he

11:05

didn't react well to the first pitch

11:06

cutter down and in so I decided to go

11:08

with the Quick Pitch cut her in and we

11:10

get the strike call maybe the timing's

11:11

throwing him off a little bit cuz he

11:12

didn't swing at this he hasn't swung at

11:14

any of them but we got him right where

11:15

we want him it's one and two timing's

11:18

messed up he's thinking about it easy

11:20

strike out from here so I go back to my

11:21

normal leg kick I throw a splitter it's

11:24

nasty he swings right over the top of it

11:26

out in front of it and we get the much

11:27

needed strikeout perfect sequence two

11:30

Cutters running in on him he sees the

11:31

exact same trajectory and thinks the

11:33

ball's going to run in but it Dives the

11:35

other way and we get the strike out

11:37

flawlessly executed now I'm almost out

11:39

of this Jam base is loaded we got a

11:41

righty at the

11:42

plate I decided to have a little bit of
