Congratulations, Chris Newell: From Little League to the Big League

Newtown Square Friends & Neighbors, September 2022

You may recall that our September, 2021 issue featured Newtown Square resident and former Newtown Edgmont Little League player Chris Newell. From the time Chris was a little boy, he dreamed of playing major league baseball. 

For Chris, that dream became a reality on July 19th when he was selected in the 13th round by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the MLB draft. 

But luck didn’t get Chris to where he is today. Work did. Chris has some advice for the younger generation of ballplayers who dream of making it to the big leagues. “Growing up, I wasn’t the best player on my team, but I worked hard to become one,” he said. “Study the game, listen to your coaches and stay hungry.”

Congratulations, Chris. Your Newtown Square Friends & Neighbors are proud of your accomplishments and look forward to watching your future unfold on the field.
