This week has been a real thrill for the “Trill.”

Kenny Wells, a former Seton Hill relief pitcher with the social media name, “Kenny Trill,” signed this week with the Danville Braves, the Advanced-Rookie level affiliate of the Atlanta Braves.

He made his minor league debut on the Fourth of July and worked a scoreless inning of relief in a 14-8 loss at the Princeton Rays.

Wells, from Lodi, Ohio, went 2-3 in 19 appearances with five saves in his final season at Seton Hill. He struck out 42 and walked 18 in 26.2 innings.

What most will remember about Wells during his time in Greensburg was how he came back from a near-death experience while pitching in practice a couple of years ago.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
