Anthony Seigler is an infielder, catcher and pitcher who plays varsity for the Purple Hurricanes team in Cartersville, Georgia. @CHSHurricaneBSB

Based on his size and fast pop time, I would think that he might play catcher in college.

An article in The Daily Tribune News reported  that Seigler was a second baseman / ambidextrous pitcher on varsity as a freshman, including pitching in a double-header: 

Seigler pitched that game left-handed, but came back in game 2 later that day and helped Cartersville get through game 2 right-handed, something he has done often this season as an ambidextrous pitcher. As a result, Chester has referred to having Seigler at his disposal is like having an extra pitcher on the staff. 

“I tell people that I’m naturally lefty, but I don’t really know. I write with my right, so I guess I’m naturally right handed,” Seigler said. “I think it’s the same for both sides, which I think is really good because it helps me maintain speed from both sides. I would rather go on the mound left, but if I go righty, I’ll do whatever it takes.”  (

The Astros’ 2018 catcher/both-handed pitcher Anthony Siegler was a one-man tsunami at the 15u PG WWBA, slashing .414/.441/.655 with four doubles, a home run, nine RBI and six runs scored at the plate. He made four appearances on the mound and went 2-0 for the 11-0-0 Astros, and allowed no runs on four hits while striking out 11 and walking four in 14 2/3 innings of work.The ambidextrous Siegler worked four innings right-handed in a semifinal round victory, and then made his way through the entire five-inning championship game using both his right and left arms. He pitched a two-hit shutout and was 2-for-3 with a double and three RBI in the title game.“Siegler’s performance was big for us today,” Jordan told PG after the championship game. “If I have one way to describe him, he is a gritty gym rat. He does everything really well – throws and hits both ways – and just competes.” Siegler and 2018 shortstop/outfielder/right-hander Hudson Haskin were named to the all-tournament team as both hitters and pitchers.

Game 1: Cartersville 12, Wayne County 1

Freshman Anthony Seigler got the start for Cartersville and was facing Wayne County senior ace and Georgia Southern commit J.D. Paul.

However, it was Seigler who looked like the playoff veteran in game 1 Wednesday as he pitched a complete game for the win.
Seigler pitched left-handed for the first time in the playoffs and allowed just three hits, two walks and no earned runs while striking out six.
