Jesse Scholtens has a 94-mile-an-hour fastball, and he has been getting ready for this Spring for as long as he can remember.
“It’s what I’ve wanted my whole life. And I’m sure there are a lot of kids out there who’ve been wanting to do the same thing since they were 4-years-old, since they could hold a baseball,” Scholtens said.
Scholtens is tied for the California State record number of no-hitters thrown by a high school pitcher, and he’s got one more game to pitch. For the second year in a row, the Rodriguez High School Mustangs play in Sacramento Monday for the area Division III Championship.
