FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Luis Patiño wanted to play in Major League Baseball before ever stepping foot in this county.
The TinCaps 18-year-old pitcher from Colombia joined Andy McDonnell in another segment of ‘Carpool Conversation.’ That transition hasn’t been easy but his English is becoming as smooth as his pitching motion. (His parents are both teachers and he’s studying the new language for a few years)
Outside of one wayward start, Patiño has posted a 1.15 earned run average along with 49 strikeouts and 12 walks.
