Juanita fireballer draws a crowd

Juanita High senior fireballer Jayson Schroeder unleashed his first pitches in competition during Saturday’s game against Eastlake High.

Schroeder, who has committed to the University of Washington, drew a large crowd behind the plate today of scouts and coaches wielding radar guns. At Eastlake High, they were packed in tight like fans at the front of the stage at a rock show.

Schroeder pitched the first three innings and Eastlake led, 1-0, going into the fourth. The Wolves won, 4-0.

Juanita coach Brian Shannon feels that Schroeder’s got one of the most overpowering fastballs in the state in the low- to mid-90s to go along with a good curve, slider and a changeup in the works.

“He’s a big strikeout guy and someone we’re counting on this year,” the coach said.
