Submitted by Ron Cogdill, Citadel
FCU-West Chester manager
Our team went 10-2 in the regular
season and 2-0 in the Playoffs. During the year our offense was paced by
shortstop Drew Casey along with Dan Mendoza and Gregg Melott.
Our Pitching was solid also using a
four man rotation of Drew Casey, Gregg Melott, Rick Fisher and Colbey Ryan.
In game one of our playoffs starting
pitcher Gregg Melott suffered a back injury, forcing him out of that game after
just three batters. Rick Fisher pitched four plus inning of great baseball to
get it through five. Drew Casey threw the final two innings to secure a spot in
After a 3-hour break for the other
semi-final game we came out flat in the first inning of the finals, where Drew Casey gave up three first inning runs. Casey settled down after that and got us
through five innings. Melott came back in to finish the last two innings
pitching very well.
The championship was won in the
bottom of the seventh when Chris Hannan led off with a walk, Ron Cogdill followed with a successful sacrifice bunt, moving Hannan to second base. After
another out, Dan Mendoza singled to left field driving in the championship
winning run and the celebration was on!!!
