B-W Baseball Team Values Panther Trio

Today’s Euclid Sun Journal sports page features a trio of Euclid High School graduates who are excited about playing baseball at B-W.

Three Euclid High School graduates, sophomores Jim Palko and Jimmy Martin and freshman transfer Mike Palko, are excited about getting back on the baseball diamond this spring. All three are expected to do it at Baldwin-Wallace College.

Jim Palko was B-W’s Outstanding Freshman last year, and he’s off to a good start this season with a 2–0 record and a 2.61 earned run average. His brother Mike is returning to the mound after losing a season to Tommy John surgery and will start his rookie season with the Yellow Jackets on the junior varsity club.

Martin, who saw action in the Jackets’ middle infield as a freshman, started four games at second base on this year’s spring trip to Ft. Myers, Fla., and will provide depth at the keystone corner behind senior second baseman Nate Luken.
