He’s listed as “Charles Delk” on the official Bristol White Sox roster, and when I glanced at the Iistings I almost missed it.
It was former Clemson pitcher Trey Delk, and he just happened to be the starting pitcher tonight when I caught a Burlington-Bristol Appalachian League game.
My good fortune to catch Delk pitching got even better when he threw seven no-hit innings. It would have been seven perfect innings, but he flubbed a dribbler back to the mound for an error.
