Connor Clark Switch-Hits and Switch-Pitches in Northwest Texas

Andy Ferguson, April 1, 2015
Connor Clark did a little bit of everything on Sunday March 15 at Wayland Baptist University in Planview, TX — as the Under Armour Baseball Factory National Tryout tour rolled through Northwest Texas, with a stop in the Lubbock area.
As if it weren’t enough to be a switch-hitting catcher, he also jumped on the mound and threw pitches as both a right and left-hander. As a position player, his tools were solid to above-average pretty much across the board. 
His tools fell off when he got on the mound, especially left-handed, but it was impressive nonetheless to see a switch-pitcher (I’m not really sure that’s exactly what you call it, but it sounds good enough to me).
A 2016 graduate (Lubbock HS – Lubbock, TX), Clark posted a respectable 7.15 in the 60 yard dash, fell just short of nine feet in the broad jump at 8-foot-9, and posted release times between 2.03 and 2.20.
