Placeholder Image
He started with a win on opening day and the season has only gotten better for former Warren County resident Bryan Morris.After picking up a victory a week ago against Baltimore, Morris is now 4-0 in his third season with the Pittsburgh Pirates. The hard throwing right-hander played at Motlow College on his way to the Major Leagues and has settled into his role as a reliable middle reliever in the Pittsburgh bullpen.“My two-seam fastball is my primary pitch,” said Morris of his fastball, which is regularly clocked between 94 and 97 mph. “I throw a slider with it as my main complementary pitch and I also work in a curve.”Morris admits much of his success has to do with God-given talent because he says most people aren’t going to throw 97 mph no matter how hard they work.
