Big Train College Round-Up 3/8

Baseball Express
Big Train College Round-Up 3/8  
Josh Spano (BT '13) - pictured above - looks to be a great addition to the Big Train this summer as he is off to a great start at High Point. This week he was particularly effective as he was 9/18 with four walks, reaching base in the majority of his plate appearances. Two of those nine hits went for extra bases (one double, one home run) and he scored five times while driving in two.

A mixture of new additions and an old staple came together this week at Tulane as the Green Wave went 3-1. Brennan Middleton (BT '10-'12) led the way at the plate as scored four runs and drove in two more while collecting nine hits and a walk in 21 trips to the plate. Both Freshman, Tim Yandel (BT '13) and Ian Gilbaut (BT '13) also chipped in; Yandel at the plate (4/13, BB, HBP, 3R, 2B), and Gilbaut from the mound (3.2IP, SV, 0ER, 0H, 2BB, 5K).

Other notable hitters: Matt Bahnick (BT '13 / Tallahassee CC) - 11/25, 6BB, 8R, 8 RBI, 2B, SB... Tucker Tobin (BT '11-'13 / George Mason) - 7/16, 3BB, 3R, RBI, HR... Kevin Tatum (BT '13 / Cornell) - 5/14, 5BB, 4R, 2B... Tyler York (BT '13 / Tallahassee CC) - 4/9, R, 3RBI, HR, 2B... Mitch Morales (BT '12 / Florida Atlantic) - 6/18, 3BB, 3R, 4RBI, 2B, 2SB... David Del Grande(BT '13 / Sacramento St.) - 6/16, HBP, 4R, 3RBI, 3 2B... Hunter Renfroe(BT '11-'12 / Mississippi St.) - 4/10, R, 5RBI, HR, 3SB.

Other notable pitchers: Bubba Derby (BT '13 / San Diego St.) - 3.1IP, W, SV, 0ER, 4H, BB, 2K... Ben Griset (BT '12 / St. Mary's (CA)) - 4.1IP, 0ER, 4H, 4BB, 7K... Garret Kraemer (BT '13 / Sacramento St.) - 4IP, 0ER, 5H, BB... Ryan Doran (BT '12 / San Diego St.) - 7.2IP, W, 2ER, 8H, 2BB, 6K...David Wayne Russo (BT '10-'12 / San Jose St.) - 6IP, 2ER, 9H, 2K... Ricky Holden (BT '12 - UNC-Wilmington) - 2.2IP, W, 0ER, 2H, BB, HBP, 5K.
Stephen Lumpkins (BT '10): Basketball to Baseball 
By Kent Babb, Published: The Washington Post, March 5

Another bad day had confirmed it for the big left-hander: He didn't belong here.

Stephen Lumpkins was, for about a year, exclusively a rookie league pitcher. Now it was a choice he regretted.

After this poor outing, when Lumpkins issued four consecutive walks before the manager removed him, he sat frustrated in the Arizona heat and decided he should be elsewhere: a place he'd left, that basketball court in Washington.

"I was trying to be something I wasn't," the 6-foot-8 Lumpkins said last week.

He would return to American University, where he had played three seasons, to complete his basketball career. But at the time, things didn't seem so simple. Lumpkins had surprised Eagles Coach Jeff Jones in April 2011 with news that his attention now belonged to two sports. Two months after that meeting, the Kansas City Royals drafted Lumpkins in the 13th round of the first-year player draft, and he was gone. | Read Full Article
