It’s been a record season on the diamond for the Kalamazoo College baseball team.
And a Bath High School graduate has been a big part of the Hornets’ school-record 21 victories this season.
Sophomore right-handed pitcher Ryan Orr has starred on the mound for Kalamazoo and entered the MIAA tournament with a 6-3 record and three saves. He’s struck out 58 and walked just 10 in 67 innings this season while sporting a team-leading 2.01 earned run average.
Orr has twice been recognized as the MIAA pitcher of the week this spring. Last month he earned a spot on the D3baseball.com national team of the week after throwing a no-hitter in a victory over Olivet.
Orr entered the four-team MIAA tournament leading the conference in ERA and ranking in the top three in strikeouts, wins and saves,
