Remember this name

Calvary Baptist pitcher Randy Zeigler may well be the most polished left-handed pitcher I have seen in nearly 20 years of watching high school baseball in this area.

The amazing thing about Zeigler is this: He's only a sophomore.

Now, this is not to say Zeigler will be a major league pitcher. It's not to even say he'll be a major college pitcher.

Pitchers are hard to project if for no other reason than the precarious nature of arm injuries.

But Zeigler is certainly polished and has an idea on the mound.

Granted it was against Class 1A competition, but what he did against Cedar Creek on Thursday night was masterful. He struck out 11 hitters and walked no one. NO ONE. That strikeout-to-walk ratio may have been the most impressive thing about the Cavaliers' 5-0 victory.

Only time will tell, but for now, Zeigler's name is one to keep in the back of your head.
