DISTRICT 2 BASEBALL: West Scranton’s Connor Pins Down Opposing Batters
Whether it’s on the wrestling mat or the pitcher’s mound, Tyler Connor is a tough competitor.
The senior righthander emerged this season as the ace for the West Scranton baseball team. He accounted for half of the Invaders’ eight wins and ranks among the leaders in Lackawanna Division I in earned-run average (1.66) and strikeouts (45).
“He’s been my go-to guy this year,” West Scranton coach Brian Minnich said. “He wants to pitch every opportunity he can and when he has, he’s delivered.
“He’s a smaller guy (5-foot-9), but the biggest competitor I’ve ever coached. He’s a horse on the mound.”
