Tewksbury’s Oberg making his first pitch with Rockies
Tewksbury’s Scott Oberg, frankly, was anxious to get his first appearance as a professional for the Grand Junction Rockies out of the way. “I’ve been feeling excited, nervous, and anxious,” said Oberg, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound righthander who was assigned to Colorado’s rookie league affiliate in the Pioneer League after being selected in the 15th round (468th overall selection) of Major League Baseball’s draft last month. After a rocky start, in which he allowed a home run, the former University of Connecticut standout is 0-0 with a .225 ERA in his first four appearances.
