Backer, a right-handed pitcher, has the size and arm strength to be a contributor in 2017 for the JV pitching staff.  Backer, one of the tallest Indians, pitched well at times for the freshmen team in 2016, and the coaching staff expects improved results this season. Backer’s fastball develops with his commitment to the long toss program and his weight room conditioning, and his move up to the JV squad will be challenged by facing better hitters and gathering experience.  Backer’s maturity and confidence should elevate with each outing of success.
