Known for highlight catches, former Seton Hill standout Derek Orndorff is showing HR power at Liberty
Derek Orndorff has become known for his highlight catches in center field.
The grad student baseball player at Liberty has made ESPN SportsCenter’s Top Plays three times in less than a year. He even grabbed the show’s No. 1 highlight on Feb. 19 with a diving snag on the warning track against Florida.
But Orndorff, a former Seton Hill standout, is no one-trick pony.
As good as he is with a glove, he might be better with a bat in his hands.
Whether he is using leather or aluminum, he thrives in the power alleys and swings for the fences. He might soon be making late-night highlights for his towering home runs.
Orndorff launched two homers Sunday, giving him 10 for the season, a total that leads NCAA Division I.
He appears to be saving his best for last as he chases a career at the next level. Bookend stops
