A new coaching rivalry will develop next spring when the high school baseball season begins. When North Hagerstown faces Smithsburg, the exchange of lineup cards at home plate should make for some interesting conversation. That's because Drew Crawford has been named North's new baseball coach, succeeding Steve Myers, after spending three years under Trey Cobb as Smithsburg. “I felt ready to take the next step and take over a program,” said Crawford, who teaches seventh-grade math at Northern Middle School.

Athletic director Mike Tesla announced Swisher has been named South's new head coach, succeeding Ralph Stottlemyer. “I'm looking forward to my first year as a varsity head coach,” said Swisher, who has been a physical education teacher at Springfield Middle School since 2003.

"All it was was that I realized I have two young kids at home ages 6 and 10," he said.

keller@herald-mail.com CLEAR SPRING - A one-of-a-kind honor was given to a one-of-a-kind coach Wednesday. Jim Hutson, the longtime baseball coach at Clear Spring High School who stepped down at the end of the 2003 season, had his number retired at the school's 30th Annual Varsity Sports Banquet at the Clear Spring Fire Company. "This is totally unexpected," Huston said. "This is too big an honor, probably bigger than I deserve. " Apparently, Hutson was the only one in the room who agreed on that count.

North Hagerstown baseball coach Drew Crawford thinks of himself as more of a psychologist than a coach. “Just managing 18 kids and getting them on the same page takes a psychologist at times, Crawford said. For the past two years, when he took over a talent-rich Hubs squad that produced a state championship in 2010, Crawford has kept everyone inside the book covers. After a 20-2-1 season in 2012 that produced an appearance in the Maryland Class 3A state semifinals, the Hubs turned right around in 2013 with a another trip to the state semis - with the same, unfortunate results in a loss.

Thursday wasn't anything like a deja vu moment for Tripp Keister. It was the real thing. Keister knew he had entered Municipal Stadium before. It was because he had. That was in 1993 when he was playing for the Capital City Bombers against the Hagerstown Suns. Now, Keister will not only be revisiting the staid old stadium. This year, he will be taking up residence there. Keister has been promoted up the Washington Nationals system as the new manager of the Suns, coming in to guide the next wave of prospects after a very successful 2012 season.

In another time and another place, Dennis Corapi would have saddle sores. For 27 years, he has participated in what cowboys would call “team roping.” Out west, that's a competition. Here in Hagerstown, it's considered Little League baseball. Corapi is the manager of Federal's 11-12 All-Stars. He's been in the position before, but this time, it's different. “This is my last rodeo,” Corapi said on Thursday. After 27 years of working with young and upcoming baseball talent at Federal, Corapi will be walking into the sunset after this “rodeo.” If this were the movies, it's Corapi's “High Noon.” For now, he stands five minutes before the clock strikes 12. He is there to help a new batch of players learn the game he loves while achieving some success to feel good about.

Some things are deceiving. For example, it seems to be human nature to accept things at face value. What's up front may count, but it is always a product of painstaking background work. Spring is a time that embraces that idea. We marvel at the beauty of the flowers this time of year brings. The truth is, though, for beautiful creation, there is hours of work needed to get it started and a strong root system to keep it grounded. In high school sports, watching our kids compete is the bloom on the rose.
