It’s been a season of ups and downs on the mound for Old Forge lefty Dave Chromey. But in a rematch with Mid Valley, the sophomore put forth his best career performance.
Chromey pitched a complete-game, one-hitter to lead the Blue Devils to a victory against one of the two Lackawanna League teams that handed Old Forge a loss this season.
For his effort, Dave has been named The Sunday Dispatch Old Forge Athlete of the Week for the week May 16-22.
Chromey – who lasted just 2.2 innings in his first start against Mid Valley – dominated Spartan hitters with 14 strikeouts while allowing just an infield single in seven innings of work.
Posters of Dave can be seen at Revello’s Pizza in Old Forge, and Smart Designs and Graphics in Wyoming, sponsors of the Old Forge Athlete of the Week.
