Prep Baseball Louisiana: Mizuno Pitcher of the Week (Week 8)

Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

The Prep Baseball Louisiana High School Pitcher of the Week highlights the best individual pitching performance for a Louisiana high school player from the previous week.  Each week, high school coaches are emailed and asked to send in their nominees for Pitcher and Player of the Week.  If you wish to nominate someone for Player or Pitcher of the Week, please email Alex Armand at [email protected]

While there can only be one pitcher and player of the week, our Diamond Notes, which are released every Wedensday, are intended to shine a spotlight on other noteworthy performances from the previous week.

Catholic BR currently holds the #2 spot in our 2024 National High School Team Rankings, and Schmidt has been a big reason for the Bears success this season.  Last Thursday, a plethora of MLB scouts, including a couple of MLB General Managers showed up to see the state's #1 player against Zachary, and he delivered arguably his best outing of the season.  The LSU recruit was dominant from his first pitch to his last pitch, as he tossed a complete game no-hitter (84 pitches | 59 strikes | 25 balls) with only 1 BB and 14 K's, as the Bears beat the Broncos, by a score of 10-0, in 6 innings, to move their season record to 30-2.  Schmidt now owns a 7-0 record and 0.49 ERA with 69 K's to 14 BB's across 42 2/3 IP.
