Troy Shepard

Coeur d’Alene Lumbermen

Shepard, a left-handed pitcher, struck out nine over six innings for the Lumbermen in a 10-0 win over the Spokane Cannons on July 29 at Thorco Field. Shepard allowed two hits, and did not allow a baserunner after the third inning. “He was totally in command the entire game,” Coeur d’Alene Lumbermen coach Paul Manzardo said. “His fastball and curveball were on all game. He did a good job of keeping them off balance and just kept getting better and better as the game went on.”
