The recent decision to discontinue the baseball program at Towson University will affect one athlete from Washington County. Former Smithsburg High School star Ryne Willard, a sophomore at Towson, was among the 36 players who received the news Friday that the 2013 season would be the last for baseball at the school. “I was in class at 9 a.m., got an email at 9:15 that there was a meeting at 10 about the baseball program,” Willard said. “We had a short time to get to the meeting and some players didn't get there.

Hagerstown Community College baseball coach Scott Jennings knows two out of three ain't bad. But he would feel a whole lot better if he was a guaranteed 3-for-3. “We look good offensively and defensively. We should be able to catch the baseball,” said Jennings. “It is going to be up to the pitchers. If they do their  job, then I think we should be fine. I feel good about our pitching, but that's the key for us.” Pitching is a must for the Hawks when they open their 2012 season with a 1 p.m. game Sunday at Shenandoah (Va.)

It wasn't a case of what the Hagerstown Community College baseball team did. It was more a matter of what the Hawks didn't do. Missed opportunities came back to bite HCC as Harford scored five runs in the top of the eighth inning on Sunday to notch a come-from-behind 7-4 victory and eliminate the Hawks from the Region XX tournament. “We just couldn't come up with the big play or the big hit,” HCC coach Scott Jennings said. “We left the bases loaded in the seventh inning.

The opening game of the Region XX baseball tournament had a little of everything. It was topped with the drama and suspense that come with extra innings and tight play. It took more than five hours and 17 innings to play and featured everything but a home run. In the end, that is probably what Hagerstown Community College wished it would have had in its final at-bat. Second-seeded Chesapeake College outlasted the Hawks to win the 9-8 marathon at HCC. The Skipjacks, batting as the home team, didn't take the lead until the very last play of the game but never wavered throughout, answering each HCC run no matter the situation.

The Hagerstown Community College baseball team had just as many hit batters - six - as hits on Wednesday. The bumps and bruises led to a 4-3 Maryland JuCo victory over Montgomery-Germantown. Fittingly, the winning run scored on - what else? - a walkoff hit batter. “We can't control that,” HCC coach Scott Jennings said. “It worked for us today. It gave us ways to get on base.” The Hawks (29-25, 13-12) were locked in a 3-3 tie with Germantown (32-16, 11-11) entering the bottom of the ninth.

The hitters for the Hagerstown Community College baseball team went through ups and downs on Saturday afternoon during the Hawks' Maryland JuCo Conference doubleheader against Harford.

In the second game, the Hawks got their bats going, scoring seven runs on seven hits in the first two innings on the way to an 8-6 win and a split.

It wasn't often that opposing batters were able to knock around North Hagerstown's J.T. Root. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound senior became the ace of pitchers in Washington County, helping his team to the Maryland Class 3A state semifinals with an 8-1 record and a 1.91 earned run average. Root, whose only loss of the season came at states, had a successful 12-5 record over two years with North after he transferred from Greencastle-Antrim. After the prep season was over, Root was selected to play in the Brooks Robinson Classic at Camden Yards and he'll join teammate Andrew Yacyk this week to play for Team Maryland in the Heartland Classic in Norman, Okla.

Now pitching for the Chicago Cubs - Josh Conway. Now batting for the Boston Red Sox - Nathan Minnich. Those public address introductions sound pretty sweet for Conway and Minnich, two local baseball stars selected on Tuesday in the Major League Baseball Draft. Conway - a 2009 Smithsburg High School graduate who was eligible for the draft a second time - was picked by the Chicago Cubs in the fourth round with the 134th selection overall. “It's been a long wait but I'm happy and ready to go into a great situation,” said Conway, who just completed his junior year at Coastal Carolina University.

Hagerstown Community College split its final two regular-season games of the season with CCBC-Catonsville on Saturday, winning the first game 9-8 and dropping the second 14-0. HCC (27-25) won the first game in walkoff fashion, as Eric Schanzenbacher stroked a game-winning two-run double in the bottom of the seventh inning, scoring T.J. Costigan and Andrew Zeger. Costigan pinch-ran for Lazaro Torres, who singled, and was followed by a four-pitch walk to Zeger. Josh Knupp singled to load the bases for Schanzenbacher, who laced a fastball to left-center field.
