The sage advice from the grandfather and former major-leaguer was simple but poignant. "If you can hit, they will find a spot for you," said Don Money, a/k/a the grandfather. Through the years, the grandson has certainly taken his grandfather's advice. And now the grandson is one of the most feared hitters in South Jersey. Millville junior third baseman Buddy Kennedy has been torching some of South Jersey's finest pitchers this season. When the high school season ends, he will be going around the country in high-profile baseball tournaments or tryouts.

Upper Dublin placed fourth in the PIAA District 1 Class 4A baseball tournament and earned a berth in states four years ago. Now, with a big boost from one of the school's most versatile athletes, the Cardinals are in position to equal or surpass the 2012 success. A four-year starter and two-way player on the diamond, Cole Swiger was part of District 1 championship teams in golf and football. He was a high jumper and 4x400 relay participant in indoor track and field. "He's always been a great competitor," Upper Dublin skipper Ed Wall said.

Luke Smith proved his value to Delran on Tuesday by allowing just six hits to Northern Burlington over seven innings and hitting a home run. Aside from allowing a first-inning solo shot to Kevin Welsh, Smith limited the damage and struck out eight batters as the visiting Bears won, 2-1, over the Greyhounds. In other Burlington County League baseball action: Damien Bowman Clark had a double and three RBIs and scored a run in host Maple Shade's 14-2 win over Westampton Tech.

The Phillies have given you cause to pay attention again. It is the middle of May and only a handful of teams in baseball have more wins than the team that had the most losses a year ago. If you went to Citizens Bank Park on Sunday afternoon hoping to find some more reasons to believe this can last deep into the summer, you were left in the cold both literally and figuratively. In fact, the Phillies' wind-chilled, 9-4 loss to the Cincinnati Reds did nothing but confirm the worst fears about a team that is exceeding all expectations.

Nick Milhan went 3 for 4 with two RBIs and two runs scored as the host Eagles defeated Vineland, 8-0, in a Cape-Atlantic League contest. Antonio Caraballo went 1 for 2 and knocked in one run. Drew Hickman struck out five batters in six innings to win his fifth game of the year. In other Cape-Atlantic action: Josh Arnold took a no-hitter into the bottom of the seventh inning before surrendering his only hit of the day on an infield single.

Brian Verratti showed why he's been a four-year fixture in Neumann-Goretti's starting lineup in the fourth inning of Tuesday's Catholic League game against Bonner-Prendergast. Following his two-out RBI single, the centerfielder stole second base and then, when he noticed the defense sleeping on a throw back to the pitcher, raced to third. "Honestly, he's one of the toughest kids I've ever coached," N-G third-year manager Kevin Schneider said. "He's a true, hard-nosed kid from South Philly.

BALTIMORE - For all that Sean Doolittle has accomplished in baseball, his legacy could ultimately be his long list of humanitarian deeds. Doolittle once stuck out 23 batters in a New Jersey state championship win for Shawnee High School. He was the Atlantic Coast Conference baseball player of the year at Virginia. Then, his career seemingly stalled by injury, he made the successful - and unusual - transition from minor-league first baseman to eventual all-star relief pitcher.

Matt Hand's two-way talents have played a huge role in Council Rock North's continued success on the diamond. A righthanded hurler with terrific command, he is 7-0 with a 0.78 ERA and 62 strikeouts in 36 innings. He has yielded only five walks and four earned runs. Doubling as a shortstop for the 14-1 Indians, Hand is batting .347 (17 for 49) with 10 RBIs, eight runs, four doubles, a triple, and a home run. The cleanup man has a .429 on-base percentage. With Hand leading the way, C.R. North, which sits atop the Suburban One League National Conference with an 8-1 mark, is bidding for its second consecutive PIAA District 1 Class 4A title.

Chris Mormile knows that some people still tend to overlook the Wildwood High School baseball team. He's OK with that. In fact, he prefers it. "It's a motivator," Mormile said. "People still think we're not that competitive of a team. That drives us. " Mormile is part of a nucleus of hard-core players who have changed the culture of the Wildwood baseball program, according to coach Rich Hans. Mormile and his younger brother Andrew, along with Brendan Bean and James Grauel, have turned Wildwood into a highly competitive team that looms as a serious contender for both the South Jersey and state Group 1 titles.
