After overcoming an injury, Thummel looks like an ace for Edgewood

ELLETTSVILLE – Connor Thummel sure looked right at home.

That should not be such a surprise for a senior. Then consider it had been 11 months since he’d been on his own mound, facing down enemy batters. Even when he had pitched last May, it took a lot of work to get his arm ready to go after an injury.

“I was doing (physical therapy the last month of the seaosn just to be able to play in a game, let alone throw,” Thummel said.

This spring, unfavorable weather meant Edgewood’s baseball team has held just two practices on its own diamond. He missed the first three games waiting to get enough practices in, so he had pitched just once, last week at Bloomington South.
