If you have watched the Royals play this season, lets be honest, you are in the minority. Having said that, I am kinda fascinated with this Tim Collins kid. In this era of 6’4″+ 220lb+ prototypical major league pitchers his stature is slight. The media guide says 5’7″, but somehow I am guessing that is a slight exaggeration. Luckily for athletes stats don’t play the game. Tim Collins is a prime example of getting the most out of your body. He is a prime example of what training hard and training smart will get you.
I love guys like Collins. And I find that you can learn more from the way a player like him trains than studying some genetic freak that could throw 95mph at 12 years old. Studying the workouts of a blue chip athlete may or may not teach you any worthwhile lessons. However, a player like Collins has to train smarter and harder to get where he is. I respect that.
