Blake attended Irving High School where he played Varsity all four years and led his senior team to win district. This was the first district title the school had held for baseball in 20 years. He was invited to play for the Youth Olympic team at 16 and the Junior Olympic team at 17. One of his favorite baseball experiences was at 17, pitching in Cuba against Cuba, where he pitched a 9 inning shut out.
Blake went on to be the Rangers 2007 first overall pick and started his professional career. In 2010, before his first start in the Rangers Triple A, Blake was traded to Seattle along with other team mates for Cliff Lee.
