High School Pitcher Snags Screaming Line Drive Coming Back to Mound

Tyler BrookeSenior Analyst IIMay 24, 2014

This high school pitcher quickly turned a potentially scary situation into an impressive play.

During the 4A Utah State Championship Game, Bountiful High School pitcher Parker Depasquale used his quick reactions to catch a screaming line drive that was heading straight back at him. 

It was a good day for Depasquale. He made that great play and his team ended up winning the state championship 6-4, giving Bountiful its first state title in 26 years.
