Armed To Improve: Jamestown Jammers 2017 Pitching Preview

Editor’s Note: This is the first in a series of three stories previewing the Jamestown Jammers’ roster for the upcoming Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League season, which is set to begin June 1. Today’s installment will feature the Jammers pitching staff, followed by infielders in The Sunday Post-Journal and outfielders in Monday’s edition.

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. -- Two local products and a returning all-star will be featured on the Jamestown Jammers pitching staff when they open the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League season Thursday, June 1 at Diethrick Park.

2015 Westfield graduate Nolan Hunt will follow in former Jammer Austin Alonge’s footsteps when he takes the field this summer for manager Anthony Barone. The 5-foot-11 left-handed sophomore is 1-2 with a 4.97 earned run average in 10 appearances for the Golden Griffins this spring. Hunt has started two games, struck out 14 and walked 20 in 29 innings pitched.

As a freshman in 2016, Hunt was 5-0 with a 2.90 ERA in 17 appearances — eight of them starts. He struck out 32 and walked 23 in 62 innings of work, holding opponents to a .199 batting average against.

That campaign came on the heels of his senior year with the Wolverines when he went 6-0 with a 0.60 ERA and 72 strikeouts in league play. Hunt pitched Westfield into the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class D Final Four where he beat Oriskany in the semifinals before the Wolverines lost to Smithtown Christian in the final.
