Deposit Lumberjacks topple Margaretville in sectional play

Pitching a baseball is not for the weak of heart. Mental toughness is as much a part of the pitching equation as the ‘stuff’ a pitcher brings to the mound. Just ask Chicago Cub starting pitcher Jeff Samardziga. In 10 2014 starts, Samardziga leads the major leagues with a 1.46 earned run average but at 0-4 has yet to win a game. Keeping your cool with a statistical aberration like that is a challenge.

Roxbury ends baseball season with a win; MCS falls to Jefferson

Roxbury baseball coach Greg Funck sees good things on the horizon for Rocket baseball. At the younger levels of the school, enthusiasm for baseball is running high, a good omen for future diamond success for the Rockets.
The positive swing of baseball success may have gotten an early start when Funck’s current varsity squad finished its campaign with an impressive come-from-behind win, 7-6, over Davenport last week Tuesday. The win helped Roxbury finish their 2014 campaign on a high note. Roxbury rallied to topple Hunter-Tannersville last week, giving the Rockets two pressure-packed victories in a row.
