One of the top pitchers in Horseheads baseball program history has suffered a setback.
Blue Raiders senior ace pitcher Mikey Limoncelli will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair a tear in his right pitching elbow.
Limoncelli is expected to have the surgery soon and the recovery time could be six to twelve months.
Limoncelli was a first-team all-state pick in Class AA last season and has signed to play for Division I power Coastal Carolina.
The Blue Raiders standout did bat for Horseheads on Saturday in their doubleheader sweep against Elmira at Dunn Field.
