Ryan Gibbard was a Normal CornBelter for about a month.
“Ryan is a great kid and is obviously talented. He’s the kind of player we’re always looking for. Congratulations to him,” said CornBelters Field Manager Brooks Carey.
In two years, Gibbard won five and lost 12. His ERA of 5.54 is deceptively bad. At Lynn, he was spectacular after transferring from Webber International. In his only season at Lynn, Gibbard went 7-2 with a 3.07 ERA with 84 strikeouts and only 19 walks. Those numbers are polar opposites when compared to his time with the Brewers. His 58 walks in 154 innings go hand in hand with the subpar professional numbers.
With experience comes control, and if he can regain the form that he showed in school, he should enjoy success with his new team.
