Pitcher Strotman plays in all-star game
Homestead High graduate Drew Strotman pitched in relief in last week’s New York-Penn League All-Star Game in Troy, N.Y. Playing for the North All-Stars, he struck out one batter and didn’t allow any base runners in his one inning of work. Strotman was among six members of the Hudson Valley Renegades, a Class A Short Season League team affiliated with the Tampa Bay Rays, to play in the Aug. 15 game. Strotman, chosen by the Rays in the fourth round of this year’s draft, was selected to participate after posting a 2-2 record with a 1.88 ERA in seven appearances this season.
