Wednesday, March 1, was the 3rd game of the Chino Hills Varsity Baseball season. In this game, versus West Covina, Jacob Hobson took the mound in search of increasing Chino Hills’ record to 2-1. Jacob Hobson was excellent in his pitching performance on Wednesday by going to four innings, allowing no runs, two hits, and striking out 3 hitters. All three of Hobson’s strikeouts were on curve balls and had West Covina’s hitters out in front all game. Jacob Hobson was so successful in his start due to his mixing of speeds between his fastball, curveball, and change-up. The offense for Chino Hills was phenomenal by racking up eight runs on ten hits to give Jacob Hobson the win. The offensive star of the game was Gavin Woodward who went 4-4 with a
Jeff Karpell was a standout outfielder for the Fairleigh Dickinson baseball program. His freshman campaign he posted the longest hit streak by reaching base safely in seven consecutive games.

Karpell really stood out as a sophomore earning All-Northeast Conference honors with a .337 average, which put him 3rd on the team and 9th in the NEC. During his senior season Karpell threw out 9 base runners, which is good enough to put him first for most single season outfield assists. Karpell’s efforts are still shown in the FDU record books where he ranks: 7th in single season hits (64), 7th in triples (4), 3rd in runs batted in (59). Along with his single season achievements Karpell is also 7th in career batting average (.343), 7th in at bats (571), 5th in hits (196), 3rd in triples (9), and 2nd in RBIs (145).

Kowar worked quickly in the top of the fourth, getting a fly out and a line out before Jackson Lueck singled to left — the Noles’ third two-out hit of the night. What happened next is a pitcher’s

As a four-year varsity-starting catcher for his high school, Steve was destined for greatness as soon as he stepped onto the field. His coach John Martin described the 6’2” 210 pound player as “the greatest athlete he’s ever had the pleasure to coach,” and that Steve was a “unique physical specimen.” Whenever he set foot on the diamond Steve was always at least two or three steps ahead of the competition. Whether it was always knowing where to make the play before it even came to him, or positioning his teammates in a way
“It was just being confident, working on my hitting, keep on driving the ball and going out there with confidence, don’t let the pitcher out-think you, just work on driving the ball," he said. "If he gets two strikes just work on putting out the play and see if you can beat anything out.”
Hector Olivera starting in left field, a questionable trade the Braves made for him. He has not shown much promise at the minor league level last season or during Spring Training. He hit is first home run over the weekend but it did not count since the game was rained out.
Without a doubt I had always loved baseball since I was little and had always dreamed about playing with my favorite team, the Chicago Cubs. But here I was in 2016, my first year in the major leagues for baseball. I got signed to the Chicago Cubs in the first round of the draft as a shortstop, number 14. So here I am a starting player for the Chicago Cubs my rookie year in the majors. Who would have ever thought that Jacob Wyler from Belvidere, IL could be the starting shortstop for the Cubs.
Hard work never goes un-noticed, and although I did improve, I had acquired the label of ‘outfielder’. The position that wasn’t home to me, but I was forced to recognize as my spot on the field. My first year of Varsity softball arrived and I made it clear infield is where I wanted to be, but my coach’s confidence in me continued to lack to match the level of mine, along with the fact the returning third basemen was a veteran. And the outfield is where I was sent, yet again.
You ever just listened to a person´s sob story and you continue to listen to these for so long, then you think about how you don't have a story to tell. You think that you are such an uninteresting person, well that´s is definitely not the case because you're just a person with an upbeat kick in their story, which is me.
Things started to pick up in second grade. I finally lost my first tooth, got baptized, and my aunt Sarah was expecting!! My love for kids continued to grow during this time. By the time I turned 10, I had 3 younger cousins! Spending time with them was so much fun. Soon I was ready to babysit. My oldest sister, McKenzie, babysat all the time and when she came home with lots of dollar bills in her hand, I was mesmerized. The thought of getting paid for playing with little kids blew my mind. I wanted to do it!! The summer before 4th grade, I tried out for Express, a select basketball team. I had also been on a soccer team called “Fire and ice” but I was going to switch teams because there were younger girls on the team that I was too old to
Another staffing strategy is the case of Scott Hatteberg, Hatteberg plays with the Boston Red Sox’s. He was injured and was never signed up by the Boston Red Sox’s.
