We are excited to be bringing the Milwaukee Sports Performance Podcast back after a break! We will release a few more episodes at the end of this year, and we have a great plan to bring you some awesome content in 2022. We will be releasing 2-3 episodes per month interviewing local members of the Milwaukee community that support athletes in the health, wellness and performance field. We will also be releasing some educational episodes from our staff members with a deep dive on specific topics.
We are starting our return with one of the best podcasts I’ve recorded, I speak with Evan Kruczynski. Evan went to Franklin High School, played baseball at Eastern Carolina University and now is a pitcher with the St. Louis Cardinals organization. Evan and I dig into his baseball journey. Evan really opens up and shares some of the keys to his success. (Some of these will surprise you!)
We talk about playing multiple sports growing up, the college recruiting process, how he selected Eastern Carolina University, what it was like going through the draft and how his career as a professional pitcher has progressed. He also talks about what he has learned about pitching, and some of the problems that he sees with the current youth system and pitcher development.
Evan doesn’t hold anything back in this interview and is very open and honest about the highs and lows of his baseball journey. He shares a lot of advice that any youth athlete with the goal of playing in college or beyond would benefit from.
If you enjoy this podcast and want to learn more from Evan, he is hosting a 3-session educational series at The Rock Sports Complex in Franklin, WI. These sessions are:
