ST. ALBANS, WV (WOWK) — Jake Carr is a name local baseball fans know well — the lefty was on track to have a very successful season at WVU until COVID-19 wiped it away — but his play landed him a spot on the Collegiate Baseball Freshman All-American Team.
The southpaw was 2-1 with a 1.52 era and struck out 12 batters with three walks in 23 and 2/3rds innings.
The St. Albans native is the number three starter in the blue and gold’s rotation.
As a member of the Red Dragons, he won a pair of state titles. The first in 2017 as a Sophomore and the second one came last year during his senior season.
Aside from throwing he is staying in shape by doing lots of running and push-ups.
Its a major blow for Carr to have his freshman season canceled, but he says the world isn’t coming to an end and this is just a bump in the road.
