Hedrick draws a crowd

Shawn Hedrick not only can draw a crowd, the York native can pitch too. Spending his post high school career pitching in local adult leagues, the Revs decided to give him a shot. He proved up for the challenge, keeping the Newark Bears off balance most of the night.
Hedrick, 34, tossed 6 1/3 innings, allowing three runs on eight hits in his professional debut. He didn’t walk a batter and struck out one. He did not figure in the decision, tossing 83 pitches. He left the game with the score tied, but reliever Jason Kershner gave up a three-run homer and also allowed an inherited runner to score. The Revs rallied to place a four-spot on the board in the bottom half of the inning, taking Hedrick off the hook for the loss.
The Revs front office expected a light turnout Wednesday before announcing the signing of Hedrick. About 1,000 fans purchased tickets since the Hedrick signing. An announced crowd of 4,263 showed up for the Wednesday night game, and all 100 Revs T-shirts with Hedrick’s name and number across the back sold out by the fifth inning.
