Wednesday May 9, 2001 Sports/Classifieds 13 C C A ALL Pitching and solid defense key to winning season Kyle Cort Jibsheet Reporter Plagued by injuries and offensive hi- bernation early in the season, the BCC baseball squad, which includes seven former All-State players, has once again managed to keep their playoffhopes easily attainable. Having reputable defense and one of the best pitching staffs in NWAACC is making up for BCC's slow start with their bats. Close to one third of the way through the season, they are second place in the standings, 6-4 in league, next to a hard-to- beat Edmonds. The team has had many months pre- vious to the season to prepare themselves for league play. They played against the Seattle Mariners rookie squad and played tournaments in San Francisco, Las Vegas, Oregon, and Arizona. These tournaments have turned the ball club into a team with playoff potential. It's hard to believe that a team with so much potential isn't in first place, though. They have many current pro prospects and many more to come. David Waack, a left- handed pitcher from Juanita High School, is showing good movement on his fastball and constantly throwing in the mid to high 80's. Scott Fairbanks, a right-handed side arm slinger from Olympic High School, also hits the upper 80's consistently with his fastball and can change it up with a wicked splitter. He was scouted by the Dodger or- ganization and other major league teams in the past. Michael McRae, the freshman 3rd baseman, has been showing pro-hitting strength throughout the season. He also came from Juanita and was on last year's All-State High School baseball team. There is great chemistry both on the field and on the coaching staff. Mark Yoshino is one of the most respected head coaches in NWAACC and is accompanied by Ray Bergeron and two former BCC play- ers, Dan Somoza and ]ared Murphy. The middle infield includes Scan Fitzgerald and Ryan Mummert, a.k.a. "mumm and ritz," who together helped Kennedy High School win the state championship two years ago. However, this team chemistry has been plagued by injuries to key players all sea- son long. Evan Williams is out for the sea- son with a back injury, Adam Pritchett and Greg Horton are both out with arm injuries and Nate&)hnson is just back from an early spring injury. Chris Pugmire was out for about a week after a collision at the plate in Arizona. Still, the disabled list has yet to stop the pitching staff from performing. Though the team lost 3-2 to Centralia on April 1 lth, Jason Castro came up with ten strikeouts. Mike Moser, a right-handed freshman out of Marysville -Pilchuck threw a no-hitter against Skagit. Fairbanks and Waack continue to throw gas. But the sticks prove to be the weakest link. The team agrees that the bats are due to wake any- time, and this couldn't be a better time if it is true. It's just a matter of execution. Bellevue will close out the season at Edmonds and will start the NWAACC Championships May 24th at Columbia Ba- sin College in Pasco. If their offense can match their defense and pitching, they should have no problem winning another championship. iimIiiiiiminiiimmiIiIImmIIiimiiiiniiiIImiIIIiIIiimiiiini 8 bshee ass'fled Employmen!
