Orange County Register –

           Tommy Wilson was a standout pitcher at Sherman Oaks Notre Dame High, posting an ERA of 1.06 with 76 strikeouts in 59-1/3 innings his senior season. But he used his freshman year at St. Mary’s College as a redshirt season, before transferring to L.A. Pierce College.

One could say St. Mary’s loss was a big gain for Cal State Fullerton, which recruited Wilson out of Pierce following a 2017 season there that saw him go 6-4 with an ERA of 2.11 and 104 strikeouts in just 85 innings.

All Wilson has done for the Titans in his junior season is go 6-0 with an ERA of 2.83. He has 78 strikeouts in 82-2/3 innings while making 12 starts, 19 appearances overall.

Although he began the season in the bullpen, Wilson has been the Saturday starter for months now, and he has excelled.

“He’s had a good season,” Titans coach Rick Vanderhook said of Wilson, who will start Game 2 of Cal State Fullerton’s best-of-3 Super Regional series with Washington on Saturday at Goodwin Field. Game 1 is Friday at 11 a.m., with Saturday’s slated for 3:30 p.m. “I mean, if you haven’t lost, it’s always good.

“But he commands the fastball pretty good and he pitches off of it. And that’s good for us.”

Will be interesting to see what enhanced mechanics can do to Tommy's fastball velocity.
