Rockets edge Devils in Sectionals; Wildcats stop RCS in semifinals

By John Bernhardt
Steven Hubbard is a Roxbury baseball machine. The Rockets’ senior excels at every facet of America’s pastime.
The tall, lean Hubbard is a gifted infielder who almost glides across the diamond from his shortstop position covering a large swath of real estate and gunning out runners with a cannon-like arm. Hubbard elevates Roxbury’s victory chances every time he climbs the hill as the Rockets’ pitching ace. From the right side of the batter’s box, Hubbard is a consistent contact hitter with awesome power to left field. And, once he reaches base, he navigates the base paths fearlessly with reckless abandon.

Pete Wright Memorial is ringing success

The All-Star break marks the midpoint of the Major League baseball season. Stars from the American and National Leagues come together to play a feel-good contest that is as much about camaraderie and a good time as it is about winning.
Locally, the Pete Wright Memorial Tournament marks a midpoint of sorts for the Delaware County Horseshoe League. Horseshoe pitchers from around the county come together at the barn in Andes for a day of great company, mixed competition, and a good time. In the process, participants raise money for a local cause. This year the tournament raised $500 donated to the Andes girls’ basketball program to be used to help fund participation in summer hardwood camping excursions.
