Baseball: Local pitchers doing well in college
I happened to be taking a look at NCAA baseball statistics, and several former high school standouts from Southern California rank among the national leaders in earned-run average.
They include ex-Crespi pitcher Sean Gilmartin (Florida State, 1.35 ERA), ex-Royal pitcher Tanner Peters (UNLV, 1.36), ex-Hart pitcher Trevor Bauer (UCLA, 1.36), ex-Crespi pitcher Tyler Johnson (Stony Brook, 1.65), ex-Glendora pitcher Adam Plutko (UCLA, 1.70), ex-Bishop Amat pitcher Brandon McNitt (Stony Brook, 1.73) and ex-Alhambra pitcher Noe Ramirez (Cal State Fullerton, 1.76).
Yes, Southern California is home to some great pitchers.
