Concert in Central Park
For Daniel Espino, a thud against the wall came before the pop of the mitt. The Georgia Premier Academy senior is the hardest-throwing prep pitcher in next week's MLB draft, unleashing 100 mph fury from the mound the same way he used to let loose in his living room.
His father is a doctor, so there was always an available stash of medical tape in their Panama "My grandma used to sleep on the other side of the wall, so in the afternoons, she was taking a nap," Espino said with a laugh. "And I would throw it until late in the night, and she would get mad at me."
