Erie Times-News Breakout Baseball Player of the Week: Pete Seymour, North East

Pete Seymour

North East may need several new hitters to step up this season to fill in holes left by graduation, and, so far, Pete Seymour has come through.

The senior first baseman and designated hitter ripped a two-run double to tie the Grapepickers’ first game of the season against Hickory at 2-2.

North East went on to win 4-2 and in the process pick up an impressive road victory. Seymour then drove in two runs on two hits in an 11-4 win over Mercyhurst Prep and has emerged as a clutch hitter for the ’Pickers.
