Former Kewanee Southpaw Joins Kenosha Kingfish

 

A pair of left-handed arms from Illinois State will be joining the Kenosha Kingfish this summer, as the team has added freshmen Brent Headrick and Colton Johnson for the 2017 season.

Headrick, a 6-foot-6, 185-pound pitcher from Custer Park, Illinois, has made six appearances on the mound for the Redbirds this spring. In those appearances, he holds a 5.59 ERA in 19.1 innings pitched with 11 strikeouts and seven walks. His four starts on the mound are tied for the most of anyone on the team.

Headrick was a three-year starter in high school and posted a 1.94 ERA in his senior season, striking out 118 batters in a state title-winning season. In his most recent outing, he pitched 4.1 innings against Xavier, allowing two runs while striking out six and walking just one.

Johnson, a 6-foot-4, 210-pound lefty from Kewanee, Illinois, has made eight appearances in his freshman campaign, starting two of them. He’s the owner of a 4.26 ERA in 19 innings, striking out seven and walking eight while allowing just one homer.

As a high school senior, Johnson was named to the All-State team after striking out 149 batters while holding a 1.92 ERA in 73 innings. He pitched three scoreless frames in a relief appearance for the Redbirds on March 12th
