Cheyenne’s Reisdorfer receives Athlete of the Week honors on 6/6/24

The best performance a pitcher can deliver on the baseball mound led to the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming WyoPreps Athlete of the Week award. The recipient was Cheyenne Sixers pitcher Ethan Reisdorfer. He threw a perfect game last week during a tournament in South Dakota. His attempt came during the week of May 28 to June 2, 2024.

WYOPREPS ATHLETE OF THE WEEK AWARD: JUNE 6, 2024

Reisdorfer’s perfect game came last Saturday morning (6-1-24) during the Black Hills Veterans Classic in Rapid City. The right-hander needed just 38 pitches in a 9-0 victory over the Westco Zephyrs of Scottsbluff, NE. His final line was four innings pitched, three strikeouts, no runs, no hits and zero walks. No other base runners were allowed. Not on an error or a hit. Zero. It was a perfect game! Ironically, it gave then-Cheyenne manager Ty Lain his 500th career victory as skipper of the Sixers. That was one of five wins last weekend for Cheyenne, who captured the tournament title with a 5-0 record. The Sixers outscored their opponents 43-2. Reisdorfer added two walks and scored two runs at home last weekend.

WyoPreps spoke with Reisdorfer Thursday morning. He admitted that he was only aware of his perfect play after it was over and teammates rushed onto the field to harass him. He discussed what it took to throw the perfecto, his strategy, a close call or two, his contribution to that big weekend, and more.

Congratulations to Ethan for receiving our weekly award!
