Bryce Harper learned the hard way that you can’t hit what you can’t see. Harper had been experiencing problems hitting consistently for the Hagerstown Suns. Now he sees why ... with 20-20 vision. Harper, the top prospect in the Washington Nationals organization, admitted he had a little problem seeing the ball. On April 20 against Hickory, he began making contact because he started wearing contacts. “I was told my vision was really bad,” said Harper, who hit his first Municipal Stadium home run in his first at-bat April 21 against Hickory.

"I only wish we had called hospice sooner. I didn't realize they could support us much earlier than I called them. " This familiar regret is often voiced by families who have experienced the support of the hospice team. One prevalent misconception of hospice is that care is only available to support those who have just a few days or even a few hours of life. Hospice aids and comforts patients and their families during the end of life. In truth, hospice care is best used earlier — when the physician first tells a patient that time is limited.

Cameron Selik has been labeled a contact pitcher. By the very name, the Hagerstown Suns’ right-handed starter is the guy who comes in and allows opposing teams to hit the ball in exchange for outs. Selik did an awful job of living up to his title on Monday. He was so bad, he was spectacular. Selik struck out 11 in five innings on Monday during the Suns’ 1-0 win over Lakewood. He couldn’t get contact if he tried. That’s because the BlueClaws couldn’t hit him. “My slider was sliding and my fastball was true,” said Selik, who was masterful despite getting a no-decision.
