Background: OF John Orzechowski


Speed on any baseball team can really make a difference when it comes to winning and losing.


For the Bristol Blues last year, however, speed wasn't a big part of the game and it showed in multiple games. This is where Stonehills Orzechowski comes in.


And why does he become a big piece for Bristol?


Orzechowski has recorded a stolen base in 15 of his 20 games started this season. He also has only struck out 5 times compared to 11 walks.


When you combine all this information it equates to a guy that is on base at a high percentage and once he gets on good luck.


And by good luck we are talking to the opposing pitchers and catchers not named the Bristol Blues.


Orzechowski will be a fine addition to the Bristol Blues team as he can be a critical part both in the lineup, but roaming the outfield of Historic Muzzy Field as well
