Spring sports are finally in full swing

BACK IN ACTION — Following many early season postponements due to snow, rain and cold temperatures, area baseball and softball teams have been able to get back on the field again in recent days. Here, Margaretville’s Cooper Reither, who usually handles the catching chores, delivers a pitch at South Kortright on Monday afternoon in relief of starter Eric Mathiesen.

Walks haunt Blue Devils in baseball season opener

in

An old baseball adage says “Don’t walk the leadoff batter.” Failure to heed to that wisdom contributed to an opening day loss for the Margaretville baseball team. The Blue Devils fell to South Kortright, 6-2, and in the first five innings surrendered a free pass to a Ram leadoff batter three times. All three Rams would eventually score.
The pattern started with the first batter of the game, Ed Neuman, the South Kortright centerfielder. Neuman worked a five pitch base-on-ball, stole second, and raced home on Ryan Sluiter’s RBI single.

Big fifth inning propels Rams past RCS in baseball action

in

A six-run fifth inning lifted South Kortright over Roxbury, 9-2, in non-league baseball action on Monday. SK’s Griff Metzko turned in an impressive performance on the mound, striking out 12 batters without walking a batter in six innings on the hill for the Rams.
In a high school baseball rarity, not a single base-on-balls was surrendered by either team.
Shaky defensive play cost the Rockets in the first inning when 3 Roxbury errors granted SK a 2-0. But, the Rockets would rally to plate two runners of their own knotting the score at 2-2 in the second.

Roxbury Rockets baseball set to shoot for the moon

Staff report
A roster jam packed with experienced baseball returners and a deep pitching staff have Roxbury baseball coach Greg Funck thinking big as the 2015 season approaches.
“We’ve got a starting nine that is very knowledgeable about what to do and where to go on the baseball diamond. This is a group that can put the bat on the ball and run the bases. Our lineup is strong one through nine. We don’t have to hide anyone,” Funck explained.


MCS coach works to keep baseball afloat

in

Staff report
For Margaretville baseball coach John Bernhardt, it’s about more than balls and strikes and wins and losses. It’s about keeping baseball afloat.
“Kids aren’t playing baseball. Baseball is on life support in several Delaware County communities and Margaretville’s one of them,” he commented.

RCS, MCS softball team have high hopes for season

in

By John Bernhardt
Like the sap running in the maple trees or the daffodils pushing through the snow, for over 30 years you can almost always count on spring in the Catskill mountains including a run by Jane Ware’s Roxbury girls’ softball team for a Delaware League crown. If she has her way, Ware’s 2015 team will be in the thick of the title chase again this spring.
