Junior Spotlight: RHP/SS Michael Grove

By Greg Williams
WV Director of Scouting

Michael GroveMichael Grove has a very projectable frame at 6-foot-2, 180-pound, but it's what he does with that frame that has him ranked No. 21 in the WV Class of 2015. The junior righty went 6-3 with a 2.90 ERA in 2013 for Wheeling Park. The two-way prospect also hit .378 with a .429 on base percentage.

Grove earned 1st Team All-Ohio Valley Conference honors and was an Honorable Mention All-State selection following his sophomore season. The West Virginia standout jumps across the border to play travel baseball with Sportszone out of Pittsburgh, PA. Last summer he was selected to participate in the Triple Crown Sports National Championships All-Star Game in Richmond, VA.

Grove will be counted on heavily this season to help Wheeling Park continue with its recent success. The Patriots are coming off a 24-6 season and graduated two players now playing in college.
