Pike Returns to Harrisonburg

Chris PikeLast summer,  Chris Pike was carried off the field after he closed out the final game against the Winchester Royals in the 2012 Valley Baseball League Championship.  The 6-0 180 pound right-handed junior from Fordham will be returning to Harrisonburg with all intentions of helping the Turks repeat.  Pike recorded a 1.57 ERA with 37 strikeouts in 23.1 innings last season for the Turks.  He posted a 3-0 record with 3 saves, the most impressive being that final game against Winchester when he pitched the last 3.2 innings and struck out 5 batters.  Pike received two Player of the Week awards last summer, one for the Turks and one for the Valley League.  As a freshman at Fordham Pike was named to the Louisville Slugger Freshman All American Team and selected to play in the Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team.  He remained as one of Fordham’s weekend starters as a sophomore, starting all 12 games he appeared in.  Chris went 4-2 with a 5.21 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 76.0 innings pitched.
