Josh Wright is finally finding a little time to get acclimated with his new surroundings in the desert of New Mexico. The 24-year-old North Hall High graduate made a leap of faith May 25 and joined the Roswell Invaders — a baseball franchise in the independent Pecos League, centered in the Southwest — to try and resurrect his pitching career and pursue his ultimate dream of playing in the major leagues one day. Wright seems to have his arm back in top form, despite the fact that it had been 53 weeks since his last live action during Emmanuel College’s appearance in the 2013 NCCAA Division I College World Series.
