Root Pitcher

Root flew under the radar, which often happens when you’re a sophomore playing in a big-time program like Oak Ridge.

 

By end of the season, however, teams in the Delta River knew he was one of the finer pitchers around. Root posted a 7-1 record with a scanty 1.04 ERA. He beat conference champ Pleasant Grove at their park, and his only loss was to Jesuit, which finished second in league.

 

His coach Todd Melton says of his prize pitcher, “He has great presence, especially for a sophomore. He’s way mature beyond his years. The fact that he’s already there is pretty amazing. He’s only going to get better.”

 

Melton has two more years to watch Root grow.
