A former valley high school star is one step closer to realizing his ‘Big League Dream.’
6’6″ Connor Brogdon, a pitcher in the Philadelphia Phillies’ system, has been invited to major league spring training.
Brogdon, a former standout pitcher at Liberty-Madera Ranchos, is one of 15 Phillies minor leaguers to receive that invitation earlier this week.
Brogdon was a tenth-round draft pick of the Phillies back in 2017. In 2019, pitching in 51 games at three different minor league levels, he was 6-2 with a 2.61 ERA. He recorded 106 strikeouts in 76.0 innings pitched.
