Hawthorne, New Jersey (PressExposure) September 07, 2009 -- Akadema strides to take on the top young MLB talent and have found future All Stars in Derek Holland and Vin Mazzaro. These two have had up and down seasons but the future for them looks bright. Derek Holland last year showed why he was deemed "untradeable" by the Rangers front office ranking 10th overall in the minor leagues in strikeouts. Holland's fastball reaches a blistering 98 mph and he uses his devastating slider to put batters away. He has been recently featured in Sports Illustrated Magazine for his abilities and is on every MLB hitters mind.
Vin Mazzaro is in nobody's shadow and made a name for himself by throwing 22 consecutive shutout innings when he entered the Bigs. Mazzaro is a hard throwing sinkerballer who looks to be a mid rotation innings eater. With his sinker that has hard downward movement and a blazing 95mph fastball, lets him keep wood bat companies in business.
"Both these pitchers look to be top endorsers for us" says Kris Totten VP of sales. "We are excited to have them on board and look forward to having them throughout their long careers." Akadema has endorsers like veteran all-stars Manny Ramirez and Shane Victorino but with young prodigies Derek Holland and Vin Mazzaro, it looks to bring Akadema to a whole new level.
