Rain Out Theater, Big week for the Cougars!

As I sit here and watch the rain pelt down outside the Press building I see the Yankees are still playing. Did they build a dome over Yankee Stadium during the night?

Ok...everything in high school baseball was washed out today far as we can tell. The Ocean County Tournament will try again tomorrow (Sunday) at their originally schedule times and locales though the forecast is gloomy to say the least. By the did Toms River South and East end up in the same bracket? What's up with that? .

Some other postponements and new dates... Manalapan at Marlboro will be Monday at 345 pm., Middletown South will host Shore 7 p.m. Monday in a Monmouth County Tournament game.

A big week looms for 9-1 Colts Neck. If there was a Top 11 poll they probably would have been number 11. Monday they play Monmouth, which handed the Cougars their lone setback, 5-0. Wednesday the opponent is Freehold and Friday they play Wall as they meet the latter two for the first time. So if Colts Neck is going to be a prime player in Class B North this is the Cougars week to growl!

By the way.. the last team to defeat CBA in Class A North prior to Freehold Township's win Thursday was Marlboro, 6-0, on April 28, 2004, behind senior left-hander Jack Donatelli. Don't know if Donatelli has done anything in athletics since then but that year he beat CBA, Ocean, and Manalapan, for his three varsity wins.

Our good buddy Steve Falk at the Ocean County Observer points out that two games that did not make today's Press were Lakewood's 3-2 win over Lacey and Point Boro's 8-2 conquest of Donovan Friday which propels the Panthers back into first place in Class B South. Lakewood beat Lacey ace Todd Roth, 3-2.

Regarding baseball stats: a number of coaches did not send in any stats this week as some probably did not get the word. Coaches wishing to have their leaders published should contact for further instructions. Coaches, please do not e-mail me your stats as this only muddles the process and I am the King of Muddling. The Press is not responsible for coaches who choose not to participate.
