Herald-Mail Article
Dozens of county legends to take the diamond again

They say baseball players bleed chalk dust.

After years of playing the game, it has a habit of staying in one’s system.

 

On Monday, after years away, a group of Washington County players will get a transfusion.

Former players from four schools — Williamsport, Clear Spring, North Hagerstown and South Hagerstown — will take the field once again for the first Legends Baseball Classic, a pair of alumni baseball games at Municipal Stadium.

The two games are the sister event to the Legends Classic Basketball game, which pitted former North and South Hagerstown players in the final game of the annual Roundball Classic in March at Hagerstown Community College. The alumni baseball games will be the bookends for the 10th annual Mid-Atlantic Baseball Classic.

“This is going to have a decent turnout,” said Dave Foltz, who coaches at North Hagerstown and is the organizer of the Classic and Legends series. “A lot of these guys haven’t been on a diamond for years. Some of them have continued to play slo-pitch, but more haven’t played.”

Yet, there is the draw to grab a glove and try it all again.

On Monday, 78 former players are scheduled to play in the two games. In between will be the Diamond Stars and the Maryland Association of Baseball Coaches Elite High School All-Star games. The Mid-Atlantic Classic, like the Roundball event, are showcases for high school seniors who have accepted or are looking for offers to play from colleges.

Those days have passed for the alumni, but it doesn’t mean they won’t play. Williamsport will face Clear Spring at 9 a.m. to kick off the four-game set of games at the home of the Hagerstown Suns.

The Diamond Stars will play at noon, followed by the Elite game at 3 p.m., before the former Hubs and Rebels take the field for the 6 p.m. finale.

Gates will open at 8 a.m. and admission will be $10 for all four games, which will be used to pay for the use of the stadium. Concessions also will be available.

The idea for the two alumni games evolved out of the Legends game played at the Roundball Classic.

“This is the piggyback off that game,” Foltz said. “When we had the Legends game for basketball, the baseball guys say we need to have one for them.”

Initially, the plan was to have a Williamsport-Clear Spring game, but the city players wanted a chance to take the field, too.

“The North and South guys said they got to do it, too,” Foltz said.

From there, the games took on a life of their own. Foltz created a website announcing the Legends Classics, but the rest was by word of mouth.

Players who graduated between 1973 and 2014 are scheduled to play, including Doug Higgins, who played for Williamsport 42 years ago.

Former Wildcats coach Larry Wadel and former North Hagerstown coach Dave Warrenfeltz will work the dugouts for their former teams.

“The teams are trying to get together this week to get some batting practice and work on some infield,” Foltz said.

The games will last seven innings or 2½ hours, whichever comes first, and there will be no extra innings.

But even if the games end up in a tie, it won’t matter.

 

“I’m very surprised at the number of players who are coming out,” Foltz said. “Baseball is so much different than basketball. I don’t know why they are all coming out again. It might be to get that one more time out on a diamond or a chance to play with other players from other time periods.”


Official game times announced
The Williamsport-Clear Spring Legends game will start at 9:00 AM, while first pitch of the North-South Legends game will be at approximately 6:00 PM following the Diamond Stars and MABC Elite High School All-Star Games. Both games will be played on Memorial Day Monday, May 25.


 

 

 

Date, Teams taking shape 
April 7, 2015---The inaugural 2015 Legends Baseball Classic will be held on Monday, May 25 at Hagerstown's historic Municipal Stadium. Williamsport will take on Clear Spring, then North Hagerstown & South Hagerstown will battle once again.

Official start times has not been officially announced at this time, however it looks like the Williamsport/Clear Spring game will start at 9:00 AM and North/South will begin at approximately 6:00 PM.

One former coach has agreed to coach in the event. Dave Warrenfeltz, who coached the Hubs in the 1990's, will coach the North Legends team.

 


 

 

 



 

North, South Legends play one for old time sake

 

HAGERSTOWN — By the time the first-ever alumni game between South Hagerstown and North Hagerstown began, the concession stand was near closing time because of heavy sales.

It made no difference. Folks were glued to their seats to watch not just any alumni game. It was North-South and it mattered. And they were rewarded with a heart-pounding 87-84 North victory.

 “It is great to be back,” said Scottie Rice, North’s all-time leading scorer who flew into town from Chicago. “I never thought I would put a North uniform on again.”

After pregame ceremonies, it was down to business. Not one player was out there without the idea of taming their rival.

Just 55 seconds into the game, North’s Dee Mency (2006) rattled the rims with a slam dunk. South Hagerstown’s all-time scoring leader, David Miner (2004), followed with a steal and two points. He then missed a short layup but Mike Lee (2001) was there for a big putback.

North’s Avery Carey (1994) hit the first 3-pointer and he was quickly followed by Miner crafting a long-range bomb.

Even Kenzel Jessie (1987), who referees prep basketball in the county, gave a double-take.

 
 

As halftime neared, Miner got lost in a defensive switch and hit one of his three first-half 3-pointers for a 38-35 South Hagerstown lead. Miner, hitting on 8 of 15 overall from the floor, had 20 points at the break as everyone safely made it back to their respective benches without holding up one another.

 The second half was even more intense.

 Mency hit a missile for 3, which made Miner so unhappy, he hit a shot so deep, it should have been worth four points.  The jawing between the two began, exciting the crowd.

Whether the first exchanged was planned, smiles followed, so who knew. Another exchange followed and the two jawed face-to-face.

All the while there was still a game going on. North led 56-53 with 13:15 to play. South mounted a 10-0 run to push out to a 79-72 lead with 2:32 to play.

North came back for an 84-83 lead on two free throws by Tater Russ.

Mency broke an 84-all tie by driving past Miner for a layup and foul conversion with 32 seconds to play. South’s final effort was futile and the Hubs had the first alumni win.

Miner finished with a game-high 33 points, hitting 12 of 23 from the floor. Lee added 12 points and Muz Bhutto had 10.

Mency scored 23 for the Hubs, hitting 8 of 16 shots, and Avery Carey scored 12.

“It was a great experience,” said Mency. “This is what is was all about. You come to play, we played hard and you play to win.”

Said Miner: “We’re among buddies and competitors, I love all the guys. It was a great night.”
