Coach Shields speaks on Musgrave’s MLB debut

Local Sports

On Tuesday, Bridgeport baseball head coach, Robert Shields, commented on Harrison Musgrave’s Major League debut with the Colorado Rockies, Monday night.  Musgrave, in his first action as Major League pitcher, tossed a scoreless inning, while striking out one. 

“His father said that the first pitch he threw was a strike.  He said he thought that was going to calm those nerves of being up in that level.  But with Harrison, he’s a pretty calm, cool individual so a lot of that stuff, it’s just old habit to him,” said Shields.

Musgrave is Bridgeport high school and West Virginia University alum.
