As a Little Leaguer in San Diego, Cole Hamels was fascinated with pitching. When Cole's high school coach taught him how to throw a changeup, Major League scouts flocked to see him strike out batters by the dozens. But injuries put Cole's pitching dreams on hold several times. His high school doctor once told him he'd never pitch again.

After just three seasons in the majors, baseball fans and analysts were predicting Cy Young awards in Cole's future. Find out why fans agree: The Phillies' red-hot lefty is just warming up.
