Clayton High graduate has numbers for the next level

Tim Brown graduated from the St. Louis Area out of Clayton High School and what still to this day is known to be the best baseball player ever to come out of Clayton High School. Brown now pitching in the Frontier League for the Gateway Grizzlies had numbers this past summer that could call for him to sign at the next level.

The right hander started all 20 games this year that he appeared in which saw him go a full 9 innings 4 times. Brown totaled 150 innings on the season with an era of 2.27.

Finishing the regular season with a record of 12-2 and a whip of 1.19. Brown was the for sure Ace of the Grizzlies as he started Game 1 of their playoff race against the Florence Freedom. Brown won game 1 with 8 strong innings allowing 2 earned runs, 7 hits, and fanning 6.

Brown’s second start in the playoffs didn’t fair as good as his first as he threw 6 innings and allowed 4 earned with 8 hits. Brown did strikeout 5 in the game with no walks and took the loss.

Brown only allowed 10 homeruns in 150 innings this season, striking out 66, and walking 40.

The tall 6’3 lanky right hander deserves a look from a major league club at least for a minor league appearance to see what kind of quality he can produce. MLB teams would be passing up a great opportunity if they let him slide by.
