A starting pitcher in a major league baseball playoff game last night is from

La Porte County.

Sean Manaea is on the Oakland A's.

Manaea grew up in Wanatah and went to South Central High School.

Principal Ben Anderson says having a major leaguer means a lot to the community....

Gary Biggs of Wanatah knows Manaea.

Sean and his son played baseball together while growing up.

Manaea gave up three home runs and the A's lost.

Biggs watched the game on TV.

He says Manaea really did well......considering he missed much of the season recovering

from shoulder surgery.....

The 27 year old Manaea played his senior year at Andrean and went on to

Indiana State University.
