Dynasty Adds Gary Amato To Its Growing Baseball Division

amatoGary Amato is a 6’2 200 lbs pitcher out of Penn State University. He was born in Cocoa Beach,FL, where he led Cocoa Beach High School with a 1.64 ERA, 72 strikeouts and a .403 batting average his junior year (’03); and as team captain senior year (’04), putting up a 1.08 ERA with 117 strikeouts and a no-hitter during senior season.

Amato is a hard throwing sinkerball pitcher whose fastball touches in the low/mid 90’s.  At the advice of his pitching coaches, Amato started throwing from a sidearm motion for the 2009 season and it has paid off. The Pittsburgh Pirates selected Amato in the 2007 draft. He has been used primarily as a reliever/closer ever since.

Amato is Dynasty‘s seventh signed client on a Minor League professional roster and is the first Pittsburgh Pirate organization client for the company.  Bryan Swalley will serve as Amato’s primary agent.
