Bill Greenfield – Tall LH pitcher with a 5:1 K/BB ratio in one of the top NCAA I conferences. Holds Irish passport (SIGNED FOR THE 2018 SUMMER)

SIGNED TO PLAY IN EUROPE FOR THE 2018 SEASON

Bill Greenfield is a tall “crafty” left handed relief pitcher out of Furman University, a member of one of the top NCAA I conferences in the nation in the Southern Conference. Bill was by far the most used pitcher out of the Furman bullpen and was the go-to guy in pressure situations. With their season on the line in the conference tournament semi final, Bill was brought in in the bottom of the 8th with a runner on second and nobody out with only a two-run lead (video link, go to 2:49). The confidence instilled in Bill by his coach to handle this situation speaks volumes of the type of player Bill is and the leadership he can bring to a team overseas. 

Bill is also comfortable as a starting pitcher, having received 9 starts over the course of his four year career at Furman. Every year he has shown improvement and growth with his senior year being his best year at 2-1 with an era of 4.98 and 40 k’s over 47 innings work against some of the top hitters in college baseball. He surrendered only 8 walks.

Bill’s fastball sits in the mid 80’s and has reached as high as 91. His pitching repertoire consists of a fastball, change-up, slider and curveball, all thrown with good command and movement. 

Any club seeking a quality starting or relief pitcher with good control is encouraged to reach out to Bill with any questions or expressions of interest.
