GGC's Maddox is National Pitcher of the Week
- Name: Seth Maddox
- School or league: Georgia Gwinnett College
- Team: Grizzlies
- Award: National Pitcher of the Week
Georgia Gwinnett College student Seth Maddox, 19, is the National Club Baseball Association’s (NCBA) Division 2 Pitcher of the Week.
According to the NCBA homepage, Maddox “dominated” conference opponent Furman University last Sunday in the second game of a double-header. He allowed no runs, walked one batter, and allowed only one hit. He struck out eight Furman batters, enabling GGC to win the game with a score of 7-0. GGC lost the day’s first game 2-1, but defeated Furman in Saturday’s season opener 10-0.
Maddox said he feels motivated by being named national Pitcher of the Week.
“It makes me want to keep working harder to achieve something else,” he said.
A native of Auburn, Ga., Maddox is a sophomore majoring in criminal justice. He is a graduate of Apalachee High School in Barrow County, where he played on the school’s baseball team.
This is his first year as a member of the GGC Baseball Club team, after an injury cost him a baseball scholarship at another college last year.
“I’ve never been on a team like this,” Maddox said. “It has the best chemistry of any team I’ve ever played on. I’m really enjoying myself.”
Because GGC’s opponents this weekend forfeited, the Grizzlies are now 5-1 for the season. They play Georgia Tech next weekend. For a full schedule, visit the NCBA Web site at www.clubbaseball.org/Div2.
