Righthanded P led team to Group IV State title.July 15, 2016 at 1:10 pm #27216
P Peter Woltersdorf, Hunterdon Central, Jr.
Woltersdorf was the workhorse on the mound for a Hunterdon Central team that captured the Group IV championship. Pitching in the Group IV final against Morristown, Woltersdorf tossed six sparkling innings, allowing two runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out five. The left-hander set new school records in wins (11), complete games (12) and innings pitched (78.1). Woltersdorf also finished the season with a 0.80 ERA and 65 strikeouts, the third most in school historyJuly 15, 2016 at 1:13 pm #27217
Left hander? Profile had him as a righty. Oh well, either way a good pitcher.July 15, 2016 at 2:21 pm #27219
He is a righty!June 27, 2017 at 1:59 pm #31469
Pete was recently named POY in the Skyland Conference and 1st Team A/S in New Jersey. He may be an immediate impact guy next season.June 28, 2017 at 9:02 pm #31473

Have you seen him pitch?
Perfect Game had him timed at 87 mph and I believe that was prior to his junior year. His SO to innings ratio is good and he appears to get people out on a regular basis.
I’ve not seen him throw though.June 29, 2017 at 1:27 am #31477
As mentioned above, one of the best indicator of early contributions is their strikeout rate in high school. Woltersdorf other numbers are great, but striking out 65 in 78 innings isn’t overpowering at the high school level.
Compared to the senior seasons of the last class of freshmen pitchers:
Hand – 88k in 64 IP or 12.4 per 9 innings
Reynolds – 70k in 51 IP or 12.36 per 9
Stoudt – 65k in 50 IP or 11.8 per 9
Obviously that isn’t adjusted for level of competition, but gives some context to Woltersdorf number of 7.5 k’s per 9. Hopefully Pete’s numbers are incorrect or irrelevant, and he contributes immediately.June 29, 2017 at 3:30 am #31480
Only time will tell how successful any of these pitchers will be but as for arm strength, only Reynolds (of the 3 you mentioned) was clocked at 87 mph in high school. Hand and Stoudt were both in the 84 mph range.
In college, everyone can hit the fastball. Location and movement are the real indicators for success. I want them all to be successful.
