Jordyn Brown is one of the most successful pitchers in the Eastern Panhandle, staring down batters from the mound as a state title contender.

In her last two seasons and 90.1 innings, Brown has locked down a 3.33 earned run average and has held opponents to a .261 batting average and a .304 on base percentage.

Out of 391 batters faced, opponents have a 368 at bat total against Brown. Batters have logged 96 hits and 55 runs, and Brown has put 22 batters on base off balls while striking out 48. In 2018, opponents only found the sweet spot in Brown’s pitches six times for homers.

Brown holds a .933 fielding average and has put out 22 runners. She has assisted in 20 outs, and made three errors since March 2017.

On the other side of the ball, Brown has a .271 batting average. Out of 51 plate appearances, Brown has 48 at bats, 13 hits and 12 RBIs. She also logged a .314 on base percentage and 11 runs.

The Second Team All-EPAC pitcher is the second local player to sign with Hagerstown, and the third Patriot to go to the next level. She will join her friend and Jefferson High signee Rachel Cunningham on the successful Hawks’ roster in 2020.

In 2018 the Hawks went 24-17 overall, held a batting average of .349 and an on-base percentage of .419. The Hawks advanced to the Regional tournament where their post-season run ended with a loss to Potomac State.
