AVON, OH – The Lake Erie Crushers have signed local product left-handed pitcher, Kenny Pierson, for the 2024 season.
Pierson, a Brookside High School graduate from Sheffield Village, signed on to continue his career close to home with the Crushers. Kenny has pitched in the Frontier League for the last three years with Southern Illinois, Washington, and was most recently a crucial member of the bullpen for the Frontier League Champion Quebec Capitales. Last season he posted a 2.87 ERA over 47 innings of work with 40 Ks and just 16 walks. The 6’4″ LHP is excited to perform for his home crowd in 2024. Pierson played at Notre Dame College for four years and ended his collegiate career ranked third in innings pitched (200.2) and allowed the fewest walks per nine innings (2.02).
“I’ve played independent ball far and wide for five years now, and my family has made a lot of sacrifices to support me. It will be nice to be able to repay them a little by playing close to home this season”, says Pierson.
The Lake Erie Crushers’ home opener is scheduled for Friday, May 10th 2024 against the Gateway Grizzlies with post-game fireworks.
