All-American makes PGCBL history

PC: Jon Saragalis

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – 2015 Perfect Game All-American Jeff Belge landed in Amsterdam, New York this summer as possibly the most anticipated athlete to ever play in the league.

For one, he’s a young area kid growing up less than two hours away in Syracuse. But being a local kid doesn’t automatically make the stadium buzz every time you step on the mound like it does when Belge toes the rubber. It starts to buzz when you are a top-50 recruit in your class with a fastball that touches 95 from the left side, and many people thought you would be playing minor league ball this summer.

If Belge doesn’t like the hype — he’s never shown or said anything that would make you think he doesn’t — he did nothing to help himself out when he threw the first four innings of a combined no-hitter against the Oneonta Outlaws on July 12.

The no-no was only the third in the history of the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League, now in its sixth year of play, and makes the buzz around Belge sound a whole lot louder. The crazy (and scary, for hitters) thing is that Belge didn’t even feel all that great on the bump on that historic night.
