During Thursday's practice, Clearview coach Rocco Cornacchia reminded his infielders that the Pioneers still were looking for their first double play of the season. "How about tomorrow?" Cornacchia said, looking ahead to Friday's showdown with Williamstown. The coach might have added, "And how about in crisp fashion to end the game?" Because that's how Clearview finished Friday's 4-1 victory over Williamstown in a Tri-County Royal Division clash of Top 10 teams. "That was great," said junior shortstop Tim Dezzi, who started the double play by fielding the sharp grounder and flipping the ball to junior second baseman Pete Liccio, who turned and fired to senior first baseman Kenny Mendoza.

A slow start at the plate and an already crowded outfield were factors in keeping Julian Turner out of Holy Ghost Prep's starting lineup most of last season. "That made me focused on getting off to a good start this year," the 6-foot, 180-pounder said. Turner continued a solid beginning in Thursday's Bicentennial Athletic League showdown against Devon Prep. He went 3 for 4 with two runs as the host Firebirds cruised past the young Tide, 11-3, at Ted Grabowski Field. The senior centerfielder and tricaptain is batting .480 (12 for 25)

David Mosley is hoping the Bridgeton baseball team can qualify for the state tournament because "miracles can happen in the playoffs. " Bridgeton coach Mike Valella suspects he might already have witnessed one. Valella is South Jersey baseball's answer to Job: Patient, long-suffering, ever-hopeful. He entered this season with a career record of 50-256 in 13 seasons. Bridgeton was 1-25 in 2013 and 1-23 in 2014. The Bulldogs were 4-23 last season. When Saturday's four-team Delaney Classic began at Clayton, Bridgeton was 0-5 in 2016.

ISSUE | BASEBALL Robinson not the only black trailblazer Once again, Major League Baseball celebrated Jackie Robinson Day on Friday ("Howard, Baker pay tribute to No. 42, Jackie Robinson," Saturday). We are aware of Robinson's tribulations as he fought courageously to become the first black player in the major leagues. But how many people remember another black baseball player, Curt Flood? It was Flood who tested baseball's reserve clause in 1970 when he refused to play for the Phillies, who had obtained him in a trade with the Cardinals.

Mark Aquilante appreciates Tony Gallo for his leadership skills just as much as his talent on the diamond. "His work ethic is unbelievable," the Devon Prep skipper said. "He treats every bat like it's his last, hustles all the time. He sets a great example for the rest of the team. " Gallo, a senior second baseman and centerfielder, is batting .407 with 13 RBIs and three home runs for a youth-laden squad. He went 3 for 3 with a first-inning homer in a 19-3 rout of Bicentennial Athletic League rival Morrisville on Tuesday.

Sometimes there are different ways to get things done. But make no mistake, when it comes to the Bishop Eustace baseball team, the results are usually favorable. This has long been one of the best programs in South Jersey, but this year, veteran coach Sam Tropiano lacked an abundance of what has carried the program over the years - seniors. This year, there are only six seniors on the roster, and one of them, infielder-outfielder Kevin Lammers, is out for the year with a back injury.

A pair of bloop doubles produced the first run in the bottom of the sixth. A three-base error on a pickoff throw produced the tying run in the bottom of the seventh. A player called up from the junior-varsity game generated his first career hit at the varsity level and came around to score the winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning. It all went according to plan for Williamstown in a 3-2 victory over Haddon Heights, since the Braves' strategy usually involves scrapping, clawing, and hanging around despite daunting circumstances.

Speaking from across the Delaware River in Camden, Walt Whitman described baseball as "America's game," with "the snap, go, fling, of the American atmosphere. " As the 2016 season starts, consider Shibe Park, onetime home to Philadelphia's Athletics and Phillies, demolished 40 years ago this year. Named after Athletics majority owner Ben Shibe, the stadium was bounded by what are now West Lehigh Avenue and North 20th, West Somerset, and North 21st Streets. Unlike the then-popular wooden and brick "bowls," Shibe Park boasted a skeleton of steel and concrete - baseball's first.

For Adam Sachs, it was persistence. For Michael Wurster and David Judge, it was patience. For Jake Azar, it was the persuasion of a teammate. Azar delivered the big hit, Wurster and Judge turned the game with bases-loaded walks, and Sachs earned the pitching win as Cherry Hill West rallied for a 6-4 victory over Shawnee on Friday. Azar, a junior rightfielder, snapped a 4-4 tie with an RBI triple in the bottom of the fifth inning of the Olympic Conference American Division clash of Top 15 teams.

They are twins marked by differences as well as similarities. Ryan Lauk is tall and rangy. He throws and bats from the right side. He's a pitcher in addition to a first baseman, and he threw a no-hitter in Clearview's season opener last Friday against Delsea. Eric Lauk is more compact than his younger-by-a-minute sibling. He says his brother got the height and arm strength, and he got the foot speed. He bats from the left side and patrols center field "from foul line to foul line," according to Clearview coach Rocco Cornacchia.
