It is hard to miss Jordan Petrushka, an outfielder at Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass. The sophomore is listed at 6’-6” and 225 lbs. and is a formidable sight for pitchers when he steps into the batter’s box. Petrushka, who will be suiting up for the Solano Mudcats this summer, will provide a lot of size and power--but also brings an impressive baseball resume to the table.
Petrushka, a native of Hillsborough CA, spent his high school ball days competing for IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., one of the world’s most prestigious sports development institutions. IMG Academy has served as a training site for several MLB all-stars, MVPs and World Series winners, including Joey Votto, Andrew McCutchen, and recent No. 1 overall draft pick, Brady Aiken.
His training helped Petrushka reach a very high level of play in a relatively short time. In 2019, Petrushka was selected to be a part of the Israel National Team in the 18U International Tournament Championship, held in Sweden.
A former first baseman, Petrushka now mans the outfield for Holy Cross, a member of the NCAA DI Patriot League.
With most rosters loaded with talent from the West Coast and Midwest, Petrushka will be a CCL player who suits up collegiately in the Northeast. Petrushka hopes to continue his success and further advance his already impressive baseball career with Solano this summer, as he looks to be a fixture for the Mudcats in the outfield and in the middle of the order.
