Twelve Family and Friends made the trek to see Chandler Shepherd make is first Major League Start.
Baltimore Orioles Pitcher Chandler Shepherd
“… I thought I threw some good pitches. I made a couple of mistakes. They took advantage of it. I was excited to get out there and get that first start under my belt.”
“… I wasn’t nervous, I think the few outings before helped calm my nerves down a little bit. I was anxious to get out there. Yeah, I would say it’s a good opportunity.”
“… It was awesome to see all of the familiar faces in the stands was glad so many got to come up and see me pitch. You know how I feel about the folks back home love every one of them. It’s special for me to pitch in front of them for sure.”
Baltimore Coach Brandon Hyde
“… I thought Shep did a nice job, He just made a couple of bad pitches for a couple of homers. But for a guy making his first major league start, I thought he threw strikes and got ahead of hitters. It took a little while to find his breaking ball. But he did a nice job for four innings and you’ll see him back out there.”
