at the highest level on a good but not quite yet elite team.
Rodney Hutchinson & Jeremiah Johnson - Westchester Sluggers (OH) - At
5"8 and 155 lbs, Rodney is another pitcher/catcher who swings a nice
stick and can control a game on while on the mound or behind the plate. Jeremiah
is the bookend to Rodney as far as size at 5'8 165lbs. He too

and relies on the 'heat' to collect outs.
