On a cold Monday afternoon, the North Hagerstown baseball team got that warm and fuzzy feeling by clinching the MVAL Antietam Conference championship with a 13-6 victory over Clear Spring. “Winning the conference was one of our three goals at the beginning of the year,” North coach Drew Crawford said. The Hubs (17-2, 11-2) slammed out 14 hits and took advantage of eight walks and five Clear Spring errors, while using a much-welcomed pitching performance from John Britton. Mark Grunberg ripped a grand slam in the fifth inning and Andrew Yacyk and Austin Stone each hit their third homers of the year in back-to-back style in the seventh inning.

If ever there were a time when North Hagerstown's baseball team needs to get healthy, it would be now. North coach Drew Crawford has resorted to start pulling starting pitching names out of helmet because of a number minor injuries to the Hubs' regular staff. Now, with the Hubs facing a must-win situation against Clear Spring on Monday, Crawford is hoping one of his top starters will be ready to face the Blazers with the MVAL Antietam title at stake. North's lead has diminished to one game after Saturday's 10-3 loss to Catoctin in Thurmont.

Marcy Fleeharty had no idea her great aunt had multiple sclerosis until only days before Saturday's Walk MS Hagerstown at Antietam National Battlefield. Fleeharty, of Berkeley Springs, W.Va., said she already had decided to take part in Saturday's walk for her friend's mother, who was diagnosed with the chronic, often disabling disease. “Two days ago, talking to my mother, I found out my grandmother's sister had MS. I had no clue,” Fleeharty said. “The fact that the walks are designed to bring awareness works,” Fleeharty said as she and her friend, Lindsay Unger, finished the last several yards of the walk.
