Fay-West Male Athlete of the Week

| Wednesday, April 29, 2009

Greg Welsh

School: Connellsville

Class: Junior

Sport: Baseball

Notable: Welsh pitched a three-hit shutout last Wednesday in a 1-0 victory against Section 2-AAAA rival Hempfield.

"My fastball was my best pitch that day," Welsh said. "I was able to keep it low and away to keep the hitters off balance."

Connellsville is (5-7, 2-5), but Welsh and his teammates are optimistic about the remainder of the season.

"If we play well, we can win our next couple games and get into the playoffs," Welsh said.

Have you received any interest from colleges yet?

Yes, so far I've talked to the coach at Slippery Rock.

Who is your favorite major-league player?

Chipper Jones.

What are your plans for the summer?

I'm going to be playing for the Connellsville Legion baseball team.

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.
