Greg Hollman – 6’6″ Hard throwing Canadian starting RHP with 8:1 K/BB ratio in senior year (SIGNED FOR 2018 SUMMER)
SIGNED TO PLAY IN FRANCE FOR THE 2018 SUMMER
Greg Hollman is a 6’6” hard throwing Canadian right handed starting pitcher who is currently playing in Brisbane, Australia for the Pine Hills Lightning (see stats here).
He recently graduated from Lethbridge College, the 2017 Canadian College Baseball Conference national champions. Greg’s 2.90 era, 8-0 record and K/BB ratio of 66/8 were major factors in his team’s success in 2017. For his achievements Greg was named to the CCBC First Team.
Early in his college career Greg played for NCAA I’s Savannah University where he struggled to reach his potential early on. It was his experience in the summer of 2016 pitching in a highly competitive summer collegiate wood bat league, Coastal Plains league, that helped build Greg’s confidence and raise his game to a new level.
Greg’s 89-93 mph fastball (yet to be verified) consistently pounding the zone from the the high angle presented by his large frame is what makes him so effective. He is so much around the strike zone that in his 20 starts in 2017, his K/BB ratio was an amazing 125/20. Greg also throws a curveball, split change and forkball to complement his fastball.
Greg has now decided that the next step in his career is to play overseas. He is excited about playing baseball abroad as an ambassador the game while meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. Any club interested in a lights out starting pitcher who attacks the zone with his fastball is encouraged to reach out to Greg with any questions or expressions of interest.

From an article back in June 2016 Hardy had this to say of Greg:
“He’s a big workhorse for us. He has a prototypical pitcher’s body. He’s able to throw three pitches for strikes. He pounds the strike zone. The angle he creates with him being so tall makes it difficult for hitters to square up.
We think within the next year or two, Greg has the potential to play beyond college. He has that much potential.”
If a club offered him a place to stay and a job, Greg would be willing to pay his flights. He is available as of mid/late March, 2018 and has no future obligations to return home. He is open to all living arrangements including a shared dorm room type setting.
