Bellomy Embracing Promotion to Hometown Black Bears

2015 Winfield High School graduate Bear Bellomy knows its good to be home. The 2019 28th round pick for the Pittsburgh Pirates was promoted to the West Virginia Black Bears two weeks ago, after pitching 11 innings for the Bristol Pirates to start his pro career.

Bellomy has not allowed an earned run in 12.1 innings of work so far while striking out 18 batters. He made his debut with the Black Bears on July 18 and pitched 1-2-3 inning with one strikeout.

At Winfield, Bellomy boasted a 1.78 ERA in 55 innings with 92 strikeouts during his senior campaign before playing three years of college baseball at Wright State. Bellomy was also a 1,000 point scorer on the high school hardwood for the Generals.
