“I’m very proud of that. We all work hard at growing the game around here.”- Mike Milligan on the Grass Valley men’s fastpitch league.
GRASS VALLEY, Calif. – Mike Milligan took up pitching when he was 39 years old in 2000. Now 47, he has developed into one of the best NAFA A-Major pitchers in Northern California.
Milligan beat eventual champion, A1 Rockies, in the winners’ bracket final, 6-0. He fired a four-hitter with eight strikeouts and a walk. And was in command the entire game.
“He’s got a good rise and drop and knuckle ball,” said All Star Auto manager Tom Allen after the game. “He is a tough gamer.”
