Nick Pivetta’s right arm has taken him from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada to Hobbs, America to Hagerstown, Md., where he has become one of this season’s winningest pitchers in all of minor league baseball.
Pivetta, who pitched at New Mexico Junior College in Hobbs in 2012 and 2013, is 13-8 this season for the Hagerstown Suns, the Class A affiliate of the Washington Nationals.
“It’s been awesome,” Pivetta said. “I feel like I’ve had a really good first year in the minor leagues. I’ve had some ups and downs but I’m pretty happy with it so far.”
Before coming to America, the 6-foot-5 Pivetta pitched for Canada Cup’s Team British Columbia and the Canadian (Under-17) Junior National Team.
