Forrest Weaver Bio – Ambitious young head coach and ambidextrous pitcher

At only the age of 23, Forrest  Weaver has a surprisingly lengthly coaching resume with experience as a head coach at the high school level and as a pitching coach at his former college Southwestern Christian University.

He is a rare ambidextrous pitcher who throws in the low 80’s from both the left and the right. From the left he throws a change-up and curveball to compliment his fastball while from the right he mixes in a slider, and change-up.
