North County’s Jobe Smith Powers His Way To Being Applebee’s Of Farmington Athlete Of The Week

(Bonne Terre) North County junior Jobe Smith has spirited out of the gate this baseball season and is our Applebee’s of Farmington Athlete of the Week. Last week, Smith went 7-for-13 at the plate with 5 RBI and on the mound he threw 7 2/3 innings giving up just 3 runs and striking out 12 batters in 4 games. Smith told us that he’s been seeing the ball well.

With a lot of games cancelled or suspended because of bad weather, Smith has been spending a lot of time in the cage.

Smith tells us what his favorite pitch is.

Smith used the knuckle curve effectively in a 5-3 loss to Farmington Wednesday afternoon, striking out 9 batters in 5 innings pitched. As Athlete of the Week, he receives a T-shirt, a certificate and a coupon for a free entree at Applebee’s in Farmington.
