B-W Baseball Team Returns from Florida with 6–5 Record

The Baldwin-Wallace College baseball team returned from their spring break trip to Ft. Myers, Fla., on Sunday after going 6–5 in the 2008 Gene Cusic Collegiate Classic.

The Yellow Jackets jumped out to a quick 3–0 start in the Classic, but an 11-inning loss to Haverford College and a doubleheader sweep by a tough Benedictine University club put a dent in their final record. Despite those setbacks, the Jackets showed the same ability to manufacture runs as they did last year, outscoring their opponents 103–40 while hitting just two home runs. They also developed a promising knack for scoring runs in the late innings.

Senior left fielder Shaun Slater and junior center fielder Cody Kidd led the Jackets’ offense by hitting over .400 on the trip, and last year’s Outstanding Freshman, Jim Palko, picked up where he left off by winning a pair of games on the mound. Senior outfielder and pitcher Kevin Shenker made the most of his opportunities with eight hits in 16 at bats and three innings of effective relief work.
