My name is Adam Mrakitsch. I live in Howell, Michigan and attend Howell High School. I am a 2021 graduate. I live with my parents, Steve and Cheryl, and have an older sister, Jacklyn, who is attending Lansing Community College. I am interested in playing baseball at the collegiate level. I qualify for the National Honor Society at Howell High School. My current grade point average is 3.86. I am undecided as a major to pursue in college, but leaning towards a business degree.
I am 6'’1 and weigh approximately 160 lbs and still growing. I am a left handed pitcher that also plays outfield. I bat right handed.
I have played competitive travel baseball since age 9. As a freshman in high school, I was on the JV team. According to our Gamechanger stats as a freshman, I threw 38.2 innings, gave up 16 hits, 3 runs (2 earned), walked 8, struck out 47 and picked off 5 runners. My WHIP was .621 and my ERA was .362. I also had a perfect game 4-27-18 against Hartland High School and had a no hitter against Walled Lake Central High School 3-26-18. My batting average was .436 (27 singles, 6 doubles, 1 triple, 6 walks, 1 strikeout and 10 stolen bases). As a sophomore, I was on the varsity team and started every game either as a pitcher or an outfielder. For the majority of the season, I was either lead-off or second hitter in the lineup. According to our Gamechanger stats, I threw 37.1 innings (mostly as a starter), gave up 29 hits, 23 runs (16 earned), walked 24, struck out 34 and picked off 3 runners. My WHIP was 1.42 and my ERA was 3.00. Our game against Northville was featured on the State Champs show game of the week that is broadcast on Fox Sports Detroit. I was the starting pitcher and threw a 1 hit complete game. My batting average was .371 (31 singles and 5 doubles, 9 walks, 5 strikeouts and 11 stolen bases out of 11 attempts).
My travel team in 2018 was the Lincoln Park Rails and in 2019, I will be on the Diamondbacks Elite (same team/coach), where our highlight was making the semifinals at Vanderbilt (out of 96 teams registered). I made the all tournament team at the Vanderbilt tournament. I was clocked as high as 86 mph at a tournament hosted at the University of Michigan. I have also participated at showcases with PBR in 2017 and 2018.
My sophomore high school baseball season has completed. I was on the varsity team as a sophomore and was one of the starting pitchers. I also started in the outfield when I did not pitch. I started every game this season and hit towards the top (if not the top of the order). I have had a few newspaper articles written about me this season. My best highlight is probably when the State Champs Network (shown on Fox Sports Detroit) profiled one of our games in which I was the starting pitcher. I pitched a 1 hit shutout/complete game for the win. I was then interviewed after. I made all Conference and 2nd team all County/Region as a sophomore.
Lastly, I have posted a pitching video in the this Spring, 2019. I have also registered with the NCAA.
My travel baseball season for 2019 has completed. Our record was 22-7. I just uploaded the stats from Gamechanger. Our highlight was winning the Tidal Wave tournament at Ripken. I also pitched the championship game and was awarded the MVP.
