Performance At Future Games Leads To MSU Commitment

NEW BOSTON - The memory of this year’s Future Games will last a lifetime for Gavin Moczydlowsky.

The sixth-rated 2023 right-handed hurler in the state hit 90 on the radar while striking out four of six batters faced pitching for Team Michigan at the prestigious PBR event a month ago.

“That was awesome,” Moczydlowsky said about hitting the coveted number 90 on the gun. “It was one of my goals for the summer. I was pretty happy to achieve it.”

Adding to the excitement was college interest from Michigan State after his performance.

“They called Aaron,” Moczydlowsky said in reference to PBR Michigan Director of Scouting, Aaron Wilson. “They wanted to get to know me better.”

Moczydlowsky, who grew up a University of Michigan fan, also had interest from Oakland, Toledo and the school in Ann Arbor, but it was Michigan State that stood out the most.

“I started talking to them right after the Future Games and then they saw me pitching again and liked me,” the 6-0 195-pound sophomore at New Boston Huron said. “They offered me last Monday (Aug. 16) and I knew it was the right school and committed there.

“It’s close to home, has a cool campus and the coaches are really good,” Moczydlowsky continued. “I liked everything about it.”

Improvement in the past year helped the cause for the 23rd-ranked sophomore in Michigan.

“I’ve been getting stronger and throwing faster,” Moczydlowsky noted. “My velo last winter was 80, so I went from 80 to 90 in a year. Some of it was mechanics, but mainly it was getting bigger and stronger. I’ve also been working on my breaking ball pitches.”

Still, until the Future Games the recruiting process was a bit stagnant, according to the 16-year-old.

“There was nothing crazy, only two or three schools before Michigan State,” Moczydlowsky reflected. “It was slow, but I knew I just had to keep doing what I was doing and someone would eventually like me.”

It proved to be the Big 10 school located in East Lansing, an hour from his home in New Boston.

“They like how I battle on the mound, and just how I pitch,” related Moczydlowsky, who played at MSU in the state semifinals in June.

The dream of playing ball in college has been around since his youth.

“I always wanted to play at the highest level I could since I started playing baseball at the age of eight or nine,” Moczydlowsky noted. “Last year when I started throwing harder and shutting people out, D-I started becoming realistic.”

Valuable help along the way played a major role in the eyes of Moczydlowsky.

“My grandpa and my dad helped me out when I was younger,” Moczydlowsky said. “As I’ve gotten older Aaron Wilson helped me out a ton. You could tell the difference.”

Business management is a potential major at Michigan State for Moczydlowsky, who carries a 3.5 GPA and plans to develop a change-up before making an impact at MSU.

“I want to win,” Moczydlowsky said about what he plans to bring to the Michigan State program. “That’s all that matters.”

As for growing up a Michigan fan ….

“I’ve changed now,” Moczydlowsky said. “Michigan State was one of my dream schools and it felt right to commit there now.

“Everyone’s excited,” added Moczydlowsky, who also plays football at New Boston Huron. “All my aunts and uncles were texting me and congratulating me. It’s been pretty awesome.”
