Morehead City, N.C. – The news of left-handed pitcher, Ty Bothwell from Indiana University returning for his fourth year, marks the first-ever, four-year tenure within the Marlins organization. 

The entire community has been swept up in a whirlwind of anticipation and fervor at the prospect of Bothwell’s historic return. The significance goes beyond the realm of sports, as it symbolizes an extraordinary commitment, loyalty, and dedication rarely seen in the competitive world of summer baseball. The city has rallied around Bothwell, embracing his decision to return with open arms and overwhelming support, solidifying an unbreakable bond between the player, the team, and the passionate fanbase.

“To be honest, during my time here, we haven’t clinched a championship yet, leaving a sense of unresolved ambition that I aim to fulfill before concluding my collegiate journey,” Bothwell said. “Securing a championship victory for Morehead City holds immense significance for me, particularly in the chance for me to contribute back to the team and community after the privilege of spending four summers playing for the Marlins in Morehead City.”

The atmosphere in Morehead City is brimming with enthusiasm, as the prospect of witnessing Bothwell continue to make history within the organization ignites a sense of pride and unity throughout the entire community. Last summer, Bothwell played in nine games as a pitcher, and tallied a 4-1 win loss record. Bothwell gave up only 24 hits and 11 runs with a 2.76 ERA on the season. Allowing no home runs, Bothwell had 39 strikeouts on the season with a 2.79 SO/W. Bothwell was also one of six Marlins to be named to the 2023 All-CPL team.

In the culmination of Bothwell’s journey, one thing remains unequivocal: there exists no superior destination for summer baseball than Morehead City. The combination of competitive spirit, familial bonds, enthusiastic fans, and coastal tranquility encapsulates the essence of the unparalleled baseball experience.
