Jack Hudd’s not fooling himself. He understands that he’s not a strikeout pitcher. When the rising Evergreen senior takes the mound, his objective is simple — induce ground balls and trust his defense.
He did both of those things in the opener of the 17U Evergreen Cougars’ doubleheader with Arena Baseball on June 22 at Evergreen High School. Hudd scattered six hits while striking out only four, but six EHS runs in the first two innings backed him up in a 9-0 win.
