Chris Stowe was born in Fredericksburg, Va. He began playing organized baseball in Spotsylvania at age 11. Most of his earlier childhood was spent around ball fields watching his father play softball. His passion for the game is unmatched.
Chris played for Chancellor High School, where he was a four year varsity starter. He compiled a career record of 33-4, he pitched 250 innings, had 345 strikeouts with a 0.94 era, and did not allow a hit his senior year until his third start. He threw 3 no-hitters in high school, two perfect games in American legion baseball, and had no losing decisions since his sophomore year.
He was awarded First team All-District, All-Area, All-State, All-Metropolitan, and First team All-American. Chris was also named District and Metropolitan player of the year in 1997. His success culminated in being chosen in the 1st round by the Montreal Expos.
Returning home after an injury ended his career, Chris had a desire to help other players in the area. He started “A Pitchers Edge”, and over the last 10 years, has helped numerous area pitchers reach their highest potential.
Chris feels there is no shortcut to success, believes in hard work, and feels everyone holds the key to their own future. He founded Pinnacle Baseball Academy because he feels it is exactly what baseball players need to gain a higher level of instruction and exposure required to play at the next level.
