Horseheads’ Limoncelli to have Tommy John surgery


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.
