Ian Clark on Baseball: Young arms to square off at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium
When the New Hampshire Fisher Cats and Bowie Baysox meet today at 12:05 p.m. at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, the top pitchers for each team will be on the mound. Sean Nolin (7-3) will go for New Hampshire while Mike Wright (9-2) toes the rubber for Bowie.
"It doesn't really matter who is pitching on the other side," Wright said. "If it's someone that's good, you do know it, but it doesn't really affect how you pitch."
"You've got to throw your own game. If he does really good or really bad you've still got to do your best," Nolin said. "It's kind of pointless to worry about the other guy."
Nolin and Wright do have a connection, however. On a recent road trip to Bowie, Nolin went to dinner with Baysox pitcher Clay Schrader. Nolin and Schrader were college teammates at San Jacinto in Texas. Schrader brought some Bowie teammates along, among them Wright.
Nolin earned a call-up to Toronto in May and was roughed up for six runs in an inning and a third. As MLB debuts go, it wasn't one you want in the clipbook, but the 23-year-old Nolin has handled himself well in the mental aspect of the game.
The 23-year-old Wright is also trying to learn how to manage the mental ups and downs of pro baseball.
