The Eagle Tribune's Kyle Gaudette recently caught up with Bentley right-hander Evan Christopulos to discuss his sophomore season at Bentley and his strong performance in the Future's League. This article appeared in the July 7 edition of the paper and online at www.eagletribune.com.
The puzzle pieces are finally starting to fit into place, and Evan Christopulos couldn't be happier with the results.
Oh, what a difference a year can make.
As a freshman at Bentley last spring, the former Andover High hurler didn't have his best stuff. In 10 appearances, he had an 0-2 record and an 8.03 ERA, struggling to make the adjustment to the next level.
But Christopulos isn't one to doubt his talent — and with good reason.
He didn't complain when success didn't come easy. He didn't quit.
No, he kept his confidence high, and dedicated himself to getting better — and get better he did.
"I've been figuring out a lot of stuff recently," said Christopulos, hours before taking the hill with the Nashua Silver Knights in the Future's Collegiate Baseball League. "Everyone is always talking about mechanics, but I think a lot of (success) comes from you being your own pitching coach out there. You just have to find the most efficient route for yourself as a pitcher."
