Meet the Gators: Cade Fisher



Up next in the 2022 Meet the Gators series is freshman left-handed pitcher Cade Fisher of Dalton, Ga. Following an impressive career at Northwest Whitfield High School, Fisher will wear uniform No. 3 for the Orange & Blue.
 
Fisher already made his unofficial Gators debut, appearing out of the bullpen in each of Florida’s fall exhibitions. In game two of a doubleheader against Stetson on Nov. 6, the southpaw fired a clean fourth inning to hold the score in an eventual 5-1 victory.
 

As a two-sport athlete at Northwest Whitfield, Fisher was a four-time letterwinner under head baseball coach Todd Middleton in addition to lettering in football. Over the course of his career on the diamond, Fisher went 17-1 with 300 strikeouts in 157 1/3 frames, translating to 17.2 strikeouts per nine innings. Most notably, he set the Georgia state record with a 0.71 career ERA.

The left-hander collected a pair of All-Section and All-Area honors from 2021-22, earning Dalton Daily Citizen All-Area Baseball Player of the Year in back-to-back seasons as well.
 
Fisher spent time on USA Baseball’s 18U National Team in 2021, tossing eight scoreless innings with four hits and two walks allowed while striking out 10 batters. He also competed for DRB Elite and the East Cobb Astros, helping lead East Cobb to a 2021 World Wood Bat Association Championship.

Perfect Game was also bullish on Fisher, tabbing him as the 12th-ranked left-hander and 112th-ranked player in the country.
