As the 2013 baseball season came to a close, the Messiah College Falcons were honored with two Falcons being named All-Commonwealth. One of them was Roanoke’s very own Mitch McClure, a graduate of Hidden Valley High School. McClure, a rising senior at Messiah, was recognized as an Honorable Mention honoree, finishing the season with an impressive 1.66 ERA and only surrendering 15 hits in 21.2 innings in relief. In high school, McClure was a pitcher for the Titans, and upon graduation he traveled to Pennsylvania to play for the Falcons. He took a break from baseball his sophomore year of college to focus on his developing film career. Upon returning to the field his junior year, he played with impressive skill and confidence, sealing his place as an All-Commonwealth honoree.
