At 6 foot 6 inches tall, Evan Sperling is an intimidating presence on the mound. It almost seems like he can reach out and touch you when he let’s go of a pitch. With that long arm span, Sperling can fire a fast ball to the plate that tops out at 94 miles and hour.
Sperling has played a big part in the success at Grafton High School in Yorktown.
The Clippers are the defending Bay Rivers District champions and have been to the state tournament 2 out of the last 3 years.
Sperling was 9-2 last season and will play for the University of Virginia next season.
For his efforts, Evan Sperling has been named the HR Sports Star of the Week.
