Hot notes, players from HS baseball

Notes from high-school baseball:

  • Ryan Arrowood (R-S Central) is having a dominant season. He is hitting .469, with five homers, 28 RBIs and eight steals. On the mound, Arrowood is 7-0 with a 0.94 earned run average. In 52 innings, he has struck out 101 and allowed 23 hits.
  • Ardrey Kell shortstop Jonny Eaker answers to the nickname “Jimbo.”Explanation: “Well, my mom may get a little mad,” Eaker said, laughing. “Seventh grade, my coach didn’t know my name one time, and called me Jim. It turned into Jimbo.”
  • South Caldwell, in its first 15 games, outscored opponents 131-11. The Spartans are No. 1 in the Observer Sweet 16.
  • Be careful taking leads against North Stanly pitchers. Jared Beck has nine pickoffs, Adrian Shepherd eight and Ethan Austin seven.
  • Major-league scouts like plenty about York (S.C.) Comprehensive pitcher Zac Fuesser. He’s left-handed and can throw 90 mph consistently. His name should get called in the draft June 6.
  • North Lincoln has five home runs, all by Byron Sherrill.
  • Concord Cannon’s Matthew Keeler has struck out once in 88 plate appearances, and is hitting .519.
  • Sweet ratio: Cannon’s William Frazier has struck out 39 batters, and walked one in 31 innings.
  • Balance: North Mecklenburg has seven hitters with 10 or more RBIs, led by Patrick Ledford’s 18.
  • Metrolina Christian (14-5) is led by sophomore Tyler Myatt (.477, nine homers, 24 RBIs), 8th-grader Will Ray (.388 as leadoff hitter) and pitchers Brantley Hattrich (47 strikeouts in 36 innings) and Hunter Hattrich (3-0).

Actually, Hopewell has 3 juniors, and 5 of the 7 seniors have committed to play college baseball. They also just hit the 20-win regular season mark, a first in the school's seven-year history. Coach Brown and the team have done a great job this year!

How about those Hopewell Titans-- working out a win over North Meck even with three senior Titan starters on the injured list!
