Joseph Galloway – Tall hard throwing RH starting pitcher with movement
Joseph Galloway is a classic story of a late bloomer in baseball. Coming from a baseball family, Joe spent his entire life on the baseball field and after a successful high school career (stats), as a pitcher at only 5’10” Joe decided to enrol at Ohio University for academic reasons while staying in the game by playing for their division I club team, which competes in the National Club Baseball Association. During college Joe grew another 5 inches and now stands at 6’3” and his fastball also jumped from mid 80’s to low 90’s.
In his final two seasons of club baseball Joe posted a record of 5-1 in 11 starts, while holding down an era of 2.51 with 77 strikeouts over 68 innings of work.
Joe throws pitching repertoire in order of strength are a slider, 4 seam fastball, change-up, and 2 seam fastball. His fastball tops out in the low 90’s which he is working on verifying by radar gun on video.
Joe has been an assistant coach of the varsity team at his former high school since 2014. He thoroughly enjoys coaching and is open to taking on a coaching role with any club that signs him.
Any club looking for an electric arm with movement who can also help with the youth program is encouraged to reach out to Joe with any questions or interest.

“Joe Galloway is an athletic right-handed starting pitcher who has great velocity with extreme movement. Not only does he possess a fastball that sits 88-91, he also has an advanced slider that he has confidence to throw in any count. His full pitch repertoire includes a 4 seam fastball, 2 seam fastball, slider, and change-up. Joe throws from a high ¾ crossfire angle, hiding the ball very well, making it very difficult for hitters to square him up. I believe Joe still has a lot left in the tank in terms of velocity, given his height growth in college he has still yet to fill out his 6’3” 175 lb frame and if he added a few more pounds a few more ticks on the fastball could follow accordingly. His pickoff move/ability to hold runners on is one of his biggest strengths, commonly picking off one guy a game.”
He is a fierce competitor who seeks the ball in big game situations. At practice he is always looking to get better, every throw he has when playing catch has a purpose. Whether that would be experimenting with pitch grips or having teammates videotape him so he can make slight tweaks in his mechanics if necessary. His teammates view him as a leader both on and off the field, showing a certain confidence when they have Joe on the mound. I would highly recommend Joe as a great addition to any team looking for a team first type of player that can be both a leader on and off the field, not to mention his outstanding credentials mentioned above.
