Rhett’s First Pitch… NW Little League, His Final Pitch…
CONEY ISLAND, NY During the first four innings of the season finale at MCU Park, four Emory pitchers were rocked for 12 hits and 11 runs. Rhett took the mound in the bottom of the fifth inning with the Eagles behind 11-3.
He shut out NYU in the final 4 innings, allowing only one infield hit. While Rhett held NYU scoreless, his teammates chipped away at the lead, but fell short, losing 11-7. Emory finished with a winning record, 20-18, but a far cry from the previous 3 seasons… invitations to 3 NCAA Regional Tournaments and advancing to two College World Series!
