NWAC & Under Armour Baseball Athletes of the Week - Week 4
SOPHOMORE • PITCHER
Jonah Callaghan, Naches Valley HS, Yakima, WA.
In his only start of the week, the sophomore lefty tossed a no-hit shutout against Big Bend. Callaghan was just one walk away from perfection but still managed to strike out 16 along the way. The complete game brings his season ERA down to 1.35 (6th in the NWAC).
"From early on in Jonah's (Jeb's) outing, I knew it was going to be special," said CBC head coach Brent Wyatt. "He was locating his fastball well and getting a lot of swing and misses. He only threw eight off-speed pitches the whole outing. That in itself just says how dominant his fastball was. He had a ton of movement and threw it where he wanted and mixed speeds well. Good things happen when a pitcher figures out how to change speeds with his fastball. It has been fun watching Jeb develop into the pitcher and young man that he is!"

"Gibby had a great weekend," said Triton head coach Scott Kelly. "And he is showing why he is one of the best two way players in the NWAC!.
