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.

Funkstown Legion baseball coach Darryl Powell is optimistic that this year's team will be one of the best in recent memory. A big reason for that is a rule change that extends the age of eligibilty from 18 years old to 19, allowing Powell to utilize the abundance of Washington County players that will return to the team after a year of playing college baseball. "I feel a lot more comfortable than in years past as far as the number of quality players," Powell said. "The big thing is the returning college players.

koelble@herald-mail.com In keeping with the annual editorial practice of offering gift ideas for sports figures and teams, here are a few that might be considered: Washington Wizards - The return of Jerry Stackhouse and Gilbert Arenas ASAP. Eddie Jordan isn't all that bad a coach and deserves a better fate with a full squad. And while we're at it, an arena that isn't so hard to get to and maybe more fans would attend. Cleveland Cavaliers - No gift needed here except some patience for victories.

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 has been living on a diet of cookies and orange juice lately. For the last week, the Hawks have been giving blood - and lots of it. The latest donation came on Thursday, as Frederick Community College came up with one big inning in each game of a doubleheader in a 7-1, 14-10 Maryland JuCo Conference sweep of the Hawks, pushing HCC's losing streak to six games. “For the last six games, one inning comes up and kills us,” said HCC coach Scott Jennings.
