High School No-Hit Whiz Signs With Arizona

patrick-Schuster-3Some news about an old friend from ESPN’s Keith Law, whose player evaluations I trust implicitly:

Arizona also signed 13th-rounder Patrick Schuster for a $450,000 bonus. He made news this spring after throwing four straight no-hitters in high school, but he projects as a good organizational pitcher and not a major league prospect.

If you don’t remember our earlier stories on young master Schuster, you can reread them here and here. Enjoy!

He Did It!

477_patrick-schuster-4th-no-hitter-42109Last week we looked at Florida high schooler Patrick Schuster who had thrown 3 straight no-hitters for his Mitchell High School team; yesterday he got his chance to toe the rubber once more and guess what, he did it again! 4 STRAIGHT no-hitters!!! Against the strong offense of Pasco High, Schuster faced 25 batters, and Pasco managed a mere 6 BALLS IN PLAY! He ended the night striking out 17, including on his 106th and final pitch, a slider for a called strike three.

“The kid didn’t even budge,” Mitchell catcher Doug Burlett said. “When Patrick has it going like that, you don’t have to do that much other than watch it happen.”

Schuster now has 60 strikeouts over the streak, but he has managed to stay even-keeled throughout it all, saying after the game:

“I walked in today saying, ‘Everyone is going to be disappointed in me because I’m going to give up a hit.’ Look, it’s going to happen one of these games. When it happens, I won’t be disappointed. Hopefully, it’s at the beginning of a game. What has happened so far, there’s no way anybody could expect that. We’re just going to keep on riding with it.”

His next start will be next Tuesday with the beginning of the Class 6A District 7 tournament semi-finals where he will be gunning for the national prep record, 6 straight no-hitters.
