Bowdoin First-Year Featured in Sports Illustrated


BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin first-year Tim Welch (Portsmouth, N.H.) is featured in the September 15 edition of Sports Illustrated, scheduled to hit shelves this week. Welch is profiled as part of the magazine's weekly "Faces in the Crowd" segment.

Welch, a left-handed pitcher, did not allow a run in 52 innings for Portsmouth High School, leading the Clippers to a 23-0 record and the Class I New Hampshire state title. He was 9-0 with 84 strikeouts and just 16 hits allowed. Welch is expected to play some outfield in addition to pitching for Mike Connolly's Bowdoin squad next spring.

Sports Illustrated, which is read by nearly 23 million readers each week, also makes their "Faces in the Crowd" available on their website, linked below:
