Liberty is 30-11 and leading the conference at 14-1.
“Definitely really cool to be able to show up every day to the park and be like we’re going to win,” says DeLaite.
Trevor has been their best starting pitcher. ASUN, ACC it hasn’t mattered.
“I’ve been able to just be myself and just have fun with it. Enjoy the game,” Trevor says, “It’s just kind of let me to have success and be able to attack hitters and really just compete.”
He’s 7-1 with a 2.59 E.R.A. averaging 6 innings per start.
“I’ve become more of a fastball, change up guy here. I’ve just rode that,” says DeLaite, “I always was a fastball, slider guy but the change up it’s just become one of my best pitches. Simplify things and not make things over complicated.”
