Gordon Ingebritson Becomes UC Irvine’s Cheat Code


If reliever Gordon Ingebritson asked the UC Irvine coaching staff how long they anticipated each appearance of his to last, he’d received an answer…it’s just liable to be a lie.

The intention isn’t to keep the truth from Ingebritson, but the truth is something that can rapidly change. Emphasis on the word rapidly. The 6-foot right-handed sidewinder works fast and gets outs just as fast, working with extreme efficiency. He attacks the zone over and over and over with a low-to-mid-80s fastball batters believe is hittable until they pound it harmlessly into the dirt in front of the plate.
