Pritchett returning to Cornbelters for 2011 season

Submitted by on February 3, 2011 – 7:39 pm

Normal, IL – The Normal CornBelters, presented by Illinois Corn Farmers, are excited to have right-handed pitcher Bobby Pritchett return to the CornBelters pitching staff in 2011. Following a six-game road trip to begin their second season, the CornBelters will play their first home game of the 2011 campaign at the Corn Crib on May 27 at 7pm versus the Southern Illinois Miners (CEFCU Opening Night).

Pritchett joined the CornBelters as a free agent in late June 2010, and finished the inaugural season with a 2-2 record, a 2.86 ERA, and 79 strikeouts during 72.1 innings pitched. Baseball America ranked Pritchett the No. 5 prospect in all Independent Baseball Leagues after the 2010 season. His fastball was clocked as high as 94 mph, averaging 91-92. One highlight of Pritchett’s first season with the CornBelters includes 12 strikeouts to complete his second with on the season while pitching against the Florence Freedom on July 30.

“I am very excited to get back to Normal and extremely ready to get back to the Corn Crib to get this championship season rolling. I am especially ready to see my host family, the Rutledges,” said Pritchett.
