(lookouts.com) Lookouts starting pitcher RHP Hunter Greene dazzled fans in his Double-A Debut. Greene only allowed one run in five innings and struck out eight. The former number two overall pick also threw over 100 MPH 37 times in his five innings of work. The 37 pitches over 100 MPH set a record for most 100 MPH pitches by a starter in the stat cast era.

Greene’s only run of the day came in the first inning as the Trash Pandas jumped out to an early 1-0 lead. Lookouts shortstop Jose Garcia quickly tied the game right away in the bottom of the inning when he belted the team’s first homer of the season.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
