Supervisors adjust, approve final budget By Jim Ridolphi For The Mechanicsville Local The Hanover County Board of Supervisors apparently heard its constituents at the April 4 public hearing on the 2013 budget proposal. After hearing a chorus of objections to cuts in the Fire/EMS budget and reductions in school administration, the supervisors adjusted the numbers to meet some of those concerns. County administration and staff worked with school officials to restore two assistant principal positions previously slated for elimination. Thanks to a grant for breathing apparatus

In January, 400 people gathered at the New Song Church to remember a slain Mechanicsville teen. At that gathering, Pastor Chad Herndon asked, “What are you willing to do to have no more events like this? What are you willing to stop doing?” On Saturday, April 21, the Hanover Cares coalition will once again ask those questions from 4 to 6 p.m. at a Town Hall meeting at Atlee High School. The meeting will include a panel of Hanover County high school students who will discuss the challenges facing today’s students, as well as what the community needs to know about teens growing up in Hanover County. see CHALLENGES, pg. 13 `

Thirty-nine students gave up their spring break to help Hanover Habitat for Humanity. They participated in Habitat’s national alternative break program, Collegiate Challenge.

Students forego spring break to help Habitat for Humanity Hanover Habitat for Humanity hosted 39 student volunteers the first three weeks of March during their spring break. The students participated in Habitat’s national alternative break program, Collegiate Challenge. “We look forward to having the student volunteers every year. This is our ninth time hosting students during their spring break and we are appreciative of their efforts,” said Garrett Augustine, Hanover Habitat’s construction supervisor. “Collegiate Challenge provides the students with an opportunity to help build affordable housing in our area and really make an impact. Because they’re here for a week working every day, the students really get a sense of the job site and a lot gets accomplished. The work they’ll do during their spring break will have a lasting impact in

our community.” The students visited from Boston College, Roger Williams University, and William Paterson University in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Jersey, and volunteered March 5-22. The students worked on Hanover Habitat’s 39th and 40th homes, directly impacting the lives of eight children. They helped finish most of the interior work for the 39th home, which will be ready for the Htoo family to move in within a few months and dried in the 40th home, completely framing and shingling the roof for the Morgan family, as well as installing all of the doors and windows. Each group stayed with the Mechanicsville United Methodist Church, and reflected on see HABITAT, pg. 4 `

Inching along through well-known speed traps Recent news coverage of the fines levied for speeding around Hopewell on Interstate 295 sparked memories of some speed traps in small municipalities in West Virginia. And, before going any further, keep in mind that if you can drive the two-lane, curvy, mountainous roads of “The Mountain State,” you can probably drive anywhere in the world. A good friend moved to southern California in the 1980s. The multilane freeways were of no consequence to her — she was used to hillsides, two-lane roads, railroad tracks, river — you get the idea. Anyway, speed traps throughout the coalfields of West Virginia were common — and if you traveled with any frequency (or infrequency, for that matter) you learned quickly when to hit the brake. If the sign posted 25 mph, then you better not be doing 26. If you were, you could expect a ticket. Most of these towns were old coal communities — and they had seen better days by the time this writer started driving those routes. No doubt, Hopewell has found itself in a similar predicament in doing what it considers necessary to continue to operate. We’re most likely all guilty of exceeding the speed limit now and again. But, there are those who zip by at a rate far beyond the usual five-mile forgiveness range. And, many times, they’re darting in and out of traffic. So, do you think Hopewell is wrong in pursuing speeders? Is it a disservice to boost the city’s coffers by that type of enforcement? From a personal perspective, the speedometer does tip a little past the set limit on occasion — but not at the risk of harming another. It could be chalked up to all those years of two-lane West Virginia roads — and the knowledge that the next town could be one of those where a police officer is waiting just within the municipality’s limits with a radar at the ready. But, for what it’s worth, the only speeding ticket I ever received was in Appomattox, where a nation reunited and my lead foot got caught. Melody Kinser

National Volunteer Week: celebrating achievements

Volunteerism is growing despite the financial challenges many are facing. Just as evident within our community is the continued realization that there is a need to do more and to take the first step to get involved. For more than two decades, the Hanover County Board of Supervisors has acknowledged the importance and the value of Hanover’s Spirit of Volunteerism by hosting Hanover’s Spirit of Volunteerism Celebration. This year’s celebration will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 1, at Hanover High School. We hope you will take this opportunity to celebrate the volunteer contributions that you have made or to express your appreciation for the contributions made by others. The evening will be filled with music, stories of inspiration and presentations of the 2012 Spirit of Volunteerism Awards. We also are honored to have Patience Salgado as our guest host this year. Salgado is known as the “Kindness Girl” and has been featured in The Live Your Best Life section in O, The Oprah Magazine (October 2011) and named Best “Local DoGooder” in Richmond in Style Weekly’s Best of Richmond issue (March 2011). Plans are also underway to include a special musical treat from the 2012 Hanover Idols, Lindsey Coggins and Faith Gitchell . To RSVP your plans to attend, contact 365-4300. Lisa Adkins Program coordinator Hanover Department of Community Resources

As the nation celebrates the 39th annual National Volunteer Week, April 15-21, we would like to acknowledge and highlight the outstanding achievements that thousands of volunteers have made in our daily life here in Hanover County. For example, as Andy Wichorek of Medi Hospice observed, “In spite of the downturn in the economy, we have more volunteers than ever contributing to our community in meaningful ways; giving their time and their compassion to our patients and families. Reflecting on the generosity and caring of our volunteers, I truly feel that as a community we are in good hands both now and into the future.” Hanover’s citizens often respond to the needs of our community by creating their own solutions. Such was the case for the Hanover Interfaith Free Clinics. As volunteer Sue Chambers said, “In just five years, Hanover Interfaith Free Clinics, an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, grew from one small clinic in the basement of a church to five clinics in various local churches. What began, initially, providing free medical and dental care to 250 low-income uninsured Hanover County adult residents grew, in the fifth year, to giving free medical, dental, eye and podiatry care to 1,223 qualified patients. Some even received eyeglasses, dentures, free prescription medications, and/or referrals to specialists willing to give pro-bono care. All this was done, and continues to be done, by volunteers. These volunteers (medical professionals and those from various backgrounds) are motivated by their desire to help others. They work with enthusiasm, dedication, faith, love, respect and compassion. It is an honor to be in their presence. Most of them have “day jobs” and volunteer in evenings and free time.” Even commonplace activities that we all take for granted In response to Bob Shannon’s (King William County) in our society, such as the act of voting for local and letter in the April 4, 2012, Local. (Full disclosure: My wife national elections, is made possible by volunteers.

Konner Mackie, 10, entered a contest sponsored by the “Orioles Kids Magazine� after the holidays to win a trip to Sarasota, Fla., for Spring Training with the Baltimore Orioles. “To our surprise,� his mom Stephanie said, “we received a phone call in February informing us that Konner was the winner.� The trip included a four-day, three-night stay in Sarasota, all expenses paid and VIP tickets to any spring training game in the month of March and a pre-game, on-field visit. They visited March 23-24. Konner and his family attended the Saturday, March 24, game at the Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota. The Orioles were playing the Nationals. Konner was given special VIP status and was escorted into a secured area where he met many of the Baltimore Orioles. He got many autographs and photos and, according to his mother, “was treated like a king.� The Baltimore Orioles are Konner’s favorite team. He is shown – wearing his Mechanicsville Little League uniform — with his favorite player, shortstop J.J. Hardy. Konner has been an Oriole junior dugout member since the age of 2.

Greatest Generation shares stories of WWII with cadets

C

ovenant Woods residents recently shared stories of life during World War II with seniors from Lee-Davis High School’s ROTC program and professors from VCU’s Department of Gerontology. The program’s concept was the suggestion of two Covenant Woods residents, Bev Lordi and Audrey DuVal, who wanted to be sure that stories they heard through casual storytelling over dinners and gatherings at Covenant Woods would be shared to inspire younger generations. Dr. James Kenley and Gabie Crutchfield set the scene for the presentation by sharing how everyday life in Virginia was affected by the war. Kenley spoke about his life as a teen, including how he and his friends would go to beach shores of Virginia to see U.S. ships being bombed. He also talked about his

‘Making Crosses’ Submitted photos

The Episcopal Church of the Creator concluded its weekly Lenten dinner program with a show and tell. The program, entitled “Making Crosses,” was inspired by Ellen Morris Prewitt’s book of the same name. As these photos illustrate, materials of paper, fabric, wood, stone, wire, shell and even cork were used to construct crosses. One might ask, “What are they going to do with all of those crosses?” The answer may be revealed somewhere nearby sometime soon, as the book encourages the cross maker to “pass it on.”

whom? Shannon makes the same mistake others do. There is a stark difference between local and federal salaries, benefits and job security.

There is no Hanover County Employees Union, Bob. Just family, neighbors and friends who chose to work for Hanover County. Shannon is partially correct: “20 to 30 years ago, you chose to work in government, you accepted a lower wage, and, in return, you had much more job security and better retirement benefits.” Most folks who took a municipal job “years ago” did

so knowing salaries were better in the private sector, but job security was more important for them. (Retirement benefits better back then, really? Better than Philip Morris, Reynolds Metals, DuPont, et al?) I don’t think so, Bob. Shannon states: “The public sector caught up but how often has compensation (wages and benefits) exceeding those in the private sector.” The operative words here are “caught up.”

The are, Bob, and have always been, jobs that the public sector is better than private (see, bartending, laborer, mechanic, etc.). Nothing new here, folks. The elimination of jobs, “mostly by attrition:” If Shannon thinks not replacing a job is synonymous with the workload leaving as well, he is wrong. Just ask any Hanover deputy or firefighter. However, Bob nailed Rhu Harris! Shame on Harris for not consulting his crystal

pizza and drinks available for all who attend. It has been a difficult few months in Hanover County. Many families have been shocked by the recent youth violence. Larry Forcum, Hanover Cares president, said, “The truth is, we can’t protect them all (teens) from risk. But we can

build a stronger safety net for our kids – one that is designed for 21st century challenges. This community has the resources and the commitment.” Hanover Cares invites the community to attend the Town Hall meeting to share ideas as to how to strengthen that safety net and build a community fully committed to raising sub-

stance-free youth. If you are interested in staying up-to-date on the Town Hall meeting and other Hanover Cares initiatives, follow Hanover Cares on Facebook at www.facebook. com/hanovercares. Information submitted by Tom Harris, Hanover County public information officer.

Terminating loyal employball (or 8 ball) years ago to foresee the need to fire employees ees just before retirement – in just prior to their retirement, case the county gets bad in the because of the economic mess future – was the thing Rhu that was yet to come. Yes, I’m see LETTERS, pg. 15 ` certain Bob is correct here.

Thursday, April 19, is the day for on-time registration for children starting kindergarten in the fall. There are advantages for parents, children and schools when kindergarteners are registered on time on April 19: / Schools can give parents important information that they might otherwise miss. / Teachers can prepare for the child in the classroom. / Schools can adequately prepare for space, staff and

materials. / Parents can receive help in collecting any missing paperwork that is needed before the first day of school. There is quite a bit of paperwork needed to register a child for kindergarten, and pulling everything together takes time.

BUDGET Continued from pg. 1 b

struggling to complete its budget process, Hanover County’s 2013 budget is set at $367.9 million with no increase in the county’s 81 cents per $100 of assessed value. The supervisors unanimously approved this year’s proposal, ending one of the most challenging financial environments in recent memory. In other matters, economic director Edwin A. Gaskin outlined an extensive plan that could make Hanover County a destination for large businesses looking for new locations. With an ample number of small development sites and business parks,

he said the county lacks a key aspect in attracting large businesses. Amazon’s recent announcement to locate distribution centers in Dinwiddie and Chesterfield counties was prompted by their ability to provide large shovel-ready sites for development. Land issues and zoning requirements were ready and waiting for the big box online retailer to begin construction within five months. Gaskin said those sites currently are not available in Hanover, and that places the county are at a disadvantage when large potential companies consider this area for relocation. Gaskin recommended the creation of a public/private business park. “The

county would control the site, not own it,” he said. The creation of a new business park would require 100 to 200 acres of privately owned GASKIN open space. he county would contract the property, market the site and facilitate the closing deal while never actually owning the property. “It’s a hybrid model that plays to our strengths,” Gaskin said. The director said he sees the vision

as an update to the county’s current strategy, and noted that the majority of Virginia counties have these types of developments. After studying the positive and negatives of those projects, Gaskin formed his plan with the best features from all. Ultimately, according to Gaskin, the five- to 10-year plan could increase tax revenue, direct job growth and create a better balance between residential and commercial property in the county. Currently, the county has 78 percent residential and 22 percent commercial sites. Gaskin said he’d like to see those numbers closer to 70/30. “We can be more successful here.

Henrico and Chesterfield [counties] are bringing their A game. If we want to change results, we have to change what we do,” Gaskin said. He recommended the creation of a site advisory committee that would identify three sites for consideration. The supervisors said they would like to see more before moving forward, and asked Gaskin to return with some possible sites for the new project. Attracting large companies to Hanover could assist in solving budget issues in the future, said Gaskin. He also said private landowners may initiate similar plans on their own once they viewed the success of the county’s effort.

systems, the problem becomes more acute. Military personnel and their families are often stationed in remote locations far from any dealerships, relying on independent repair shops to service their vehicles. Most do not have the time to find the nearest dealership, drive all the way there and wait for their sole source of transportation to be repaired. If critical repairs go unperformed, then safety may be compromised. The American Military Society encourages all service members, their families and all Americans to visit www.righttorepair.org to send a letter to each of their senators and their representatives, urging them to support this legislation.

When local repair shops are denied access to non-proprietary repair information from the car companies, competition is limited.

Bennett Funeral Home was established in 1897 to serve the needs of Richmond families. Since then, this locally owned and operated business has continued to serve the community with its unique combination of caring and convenience. This tradition of excellence can be seen in four beautiful chapels located throughout the Richmond area: centrally located on Cutshaw Avenue in the city, on Broad Street Road past Innsbrook, on Ashbrook Pkwy. in Chesterfield and serving the Hanover-Mechanicsville area on Lee-Davis Road. All four facilities are under the personal direction of Charles D. Morehead, President. In a time of need, you can turn to Bennett Funeral Home with trust and confidence. It serves families of all faiths with personal service – before, during and after. There is a long tradition of professionalism and caring. One way in which Bennett cares for families is by offering a convenient and personalized pre-need program.

Call Bennett Funeral Home at 746-8665 to schedule a preplanning consultation.

Hanover homer-fest

Photos by Charlie Leffler/The Local

Three players out of Hanover County high schools put on a slugging exhibition on Saturday at Randolph-Macon. Above far left: Hanover product Beau Flinchum (1) came up with two home runs for Hampden-Sydney in the double-header including a 3-RBI blast to win game one. Above center: Hanover product Jeb Weymouth, right, matched Flinchum’s performance with two homers on the day. Above right: Lee-Davis product Jordan Walton drilled a 2-RBI shot in nightcap that also turned out to be the game winner.

Local players notch 5 home runs in R-MC vs H-SC rivalry split By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com A trio of Hanover County baseball players put on a slugging exhibition during Saturday’s double header between Randolph-Macon and Hampden Sydney. Hanover High School alum Beau Flinchum blasted the first of two home runs on the day with a top of the ninth 3-RBI shot over the tall left field wall of High Stephen’s Field which gave the Tigers an 11-8 win in game one. Lee-Davis alum Jordan Walton matched that perfor-

mance in game two with a 2RBI shot to right in the bottom of the seventh that also proved to be the game-winner, 8-7. Walton, (5-for-9, six RBI, three runs, one home run on the day) admits he may inadvertently given Flinchum a little motivation coming into the contest. “I joked with Beau in the cage before the game. You won’t hit a bomb today and he proved me wrong,” he said. “That was pretty cool.” Also in on the fun, former Hawk Jeb Weymouth put up a two-homer performance on the day. His fifth inning home run in game one put the Yellow Jackets ahead 6-3. In the second inning of game two, he belted his second homer of the day to give R-MC a 2-1 lead. Flinchum, who went 4-for10 with three RBI, three runs,

and two homeruns on the day, picked up his second homer in the top of the seventh which put the Tigers up 7-5. “I really like Beau Flinchum and really missed the boat on him,” said R-MC head coach Ray Hedrick. “He was a really good player in high school and obviously comes from one the greatest programs in the central region.” Weymouth found it funny. “I was telling the boys in the dugout, Beau was saying, I see the two and raise you one,” he said. On the day, Weymouth was 3-for-7 with three RBI, four runs and two home runs. H-SC freshman Jeff Gray and senior Zeb Cope also homered in game one. But despite all the slugging, the day will be remembered by the actions of the officials for

producing a call unlike anyone at the park had ever seen before. Game one was tied 6-6 with two out in the top of the ninth and the Tigers’ Jordan Wind at second. H-SC’s Patrick Kuhns drove a shot to short which was

corralled by Jake Flecther. On a high throw to first, Walton had to stretch to pull in the ball but made the play to get the out and send the Jackets to the dugoutor so they thought. After an energetic outburst by H-SC’s first base coach, the

field umpire called time and consulted with home plate umpire Bobby Walker. After several minutes, the field umpire changed his call to rule Kuhns safe at first. Hedrick stormed from the see HOMERS, pg. 36 `

Right or wrong, just make the call By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Alexander Pope once wrote, “To err is human, to forgive divine,” and nowhere could the saying be more necessary than in the world of athletic officiating. Umpires, referees and sideline judges are no different than anyone else and therefore prone to make mistakes. Nothing raises the ire of fansmore than when those errors in

judgment change the outcome of a sporting event. Curse words fly, feet are stomped, the pressure is relieved and life goes on. Good or bad, a call was made. Right or wrong, it’s in the past. Live with it. What is more difficult to live with and harder to forgive are times when officials step outside the box and do something unprecedented in sports. Such was the case at see CALL, pg. 36 `

Though out of focus, it is clear that R-MC’s Jordan Walton and H-SC’s Patrick Kuhns appeared to reach first base in a play too close to call...or overturn.

dugout and confronted the official. “They just say J-Walt came off the bag,” Hedrick said. “I beg to differ. I was a little loud with it. I just don’t think that call can happen in that situation. He made the call. He had to stick by the call. He can’t lean on the home plate umpire because there’s a runner on second, rounding third that (the plate umpire) has to bear down on. Just kind of stick with his call, if it’s right it’s right, if it’s wrong it’s wrong. I think it was a tough break.” Walton was equally upset. “I’ve never seen anything like that,” he said. “I’ve seen calls be overturned but I’ve never seen calls be overturned that dramatic. We were in the dugout, ready to hit and everything. I caught the ball, looked the umpire in the eye and he signaled out. I flipped the ball, said, ‘okay, we’ll take it.’ But I would have never in a million years expected him to overturn it like that.” The play also changed the mindset for the Yellow Jacket players who had to return to the field. “Baseball’s a funny game,” Walton said. “It’s about momentum and we didn’t have it after that. We lost it. It was all about that next pitch and that next pitch is a ball and you kind of say like ‘oh, here we go.’ It deflated us.” H-SC head coach Jeff Kinne was equally upset, feeling Wind should be awarded home instead of returning to third when play resumed. Regardless, momentum was clearly on the side of the Tigers when they returned to the plate. “We’ve never seen a call that’s gotten reversed then switched again, so we really didn’t know what to think of it,” Flinchum said. “Then the whole coaches and players talking smack but we held it together and competed well.” H-SC’s Gray then singled in Wind and Kuhns to put the

In the best defensive play of the day, Randolph-Macon keeps Hampden-Sydney players at bay around the bases on a fielder’s choice. The ball eventually came to Michael Helbig (25) who made a tag on Erick Hermann (35) as he tried to score.

Tigers up 8-6. With Ryan Carter pinch-running for Gray, Erick Herrman singled to put a pair of runners on the bags and bring Flinchum to the plate for his dramatic homer and an 11-6 lead. Weymouth and Michael Helbig scored in the bottom of the ninth but it was too little too late for the Jackets. Afterward, Hedrick told his team that the game really did not come down to changed call. “It was still first and third with two outs and the game was tied,” he said. “The run hadn’t scored. We could have gotten a popup, a ground-out, a strike out and everything would have been fine. But we didn’t.” R-MC stranded 12 runners in the contest and 11 more in game two. “I told our kids, when you let a team hang around and you don’t put a team away, which we didn’t do in either game today, we had multiple opportunities to do it- something like that can happen,” Hedrick said. “That is cliché but that is out of our control. When you don’t put a team away when you have a five run lead, a four run lead and you don’t barrel balls up and put pressure on them when you have runners in scoring position, now you get into a two-run game, a one-run game and it’s Ahhhh. Now you get a

call like that, which; no, it was the wrong call in my opinion, but I can’t blame the officials for us losing that game.” The action was no less dramatic in the nightcap. Randolph-Macon jumped out to a 4-1 lead after four innings but once again Hampden-Sydney answered

Randolph-Macon’s Hugh Steven’s Field on Saturday. With the game tied, two out and a Hampden-Sydney runner on second in the top of the ninth, Randolph-Macon first baseman Jordan Walton made what appeared to be an incredibly athletic play, pulling in a high throw just as Patrick Kuhns crossed the bag. A short distance away, the field umpire made the call. “I caught the ball, looked the umpire in the eye and he signaled out,” Walton said. “I flipped the ball, said, ‘okay, we’ll take it’.” But after the Yellow Jackets reached the dugout, the field umpire appeared to heed the heightened protests from Hampden-Sydney’s first base coach and called time. A discussion then ensued between the umpires. While

to tie the game. Wind and Christian Hamlett scored then Kuhns came in on a two-RBI shot from Gray. A Fletcher RBI single in the bottom of the fifth drove in Macon Heikes and put the Jackets back on top 5-4, but only briefly. In the top of the sixth, a double from H-SC’s Hunter Lewis drove in Allan Brownell to tie the game 5-5. A RBI single from Kuhns sent Lewis home for a 6-5 Tiger lead. Flinchum’s homer in the top of the seventh made the margin 7-5, but it was R-MC’s turn to answer in the bottom of the inning. With Heikes at third and Fletcher at first, Walton homered to right to put the Jackets on top 8-7. The score was the same with one out in the top of the ninth when once again the big play came at first. With HSC’s Hermann at first, Andrew Tucker grounded a shot to short.

R-MC’s Austin Carpenter got the force on Hermann at second then threw to Walton at first. Thoughts of a repeat call were going through Walton’s head. “I knew once the ball up, I was, ‘here we go, here we go’, I’ve got to keep my foot on the bag,” he said. “What I was told was not to jump always keep my foot on the bag as long as I can because if the ball goes over my head it bounces right back to me.” In a sweeping catch, Walton pulled in the throw and the umpire ruled Tucker out to complete the double play. After Tucker crossed the bag Walton released the ball and it went rolling across the ground, once again bringing protest from HSC’s first base coach. “I know I caught it and I knew I was on the bag,” Walton said. “I didn’t realize the ball was out of my glove until the last second.” The field umpire quickly indicated to the coach that the play was complete before Walton

released the ball. Hedrick felt fortunate to come away with the split and the day was a perfect example of how his team has played this season. “We’re inconsistent,” he said. “We play really good some days, play great defense, pitch, and we don’t get the offense. Some days we get the offense and don’t play good defense. We’re 500. We’re average.” The Yellow Jackets travel to Roanoke this weekend for their final ODAC set of the regular season then host York, Pa. in their final regular season games May 5-6.

only the two know what was said, one can easily speculate what transpired. The field umpire was clearly uncertain of his decision after calling Kuhns out at first. With a H-SC runner at second, home plate umpire Bobby Walker was not watching the play at first and instead concentrating on the runner rounding third. The incident was no different than hundreds of others that happen across the country during every baseball season since the sport was invented. A disputed call, evidence is evaluated, a decision is made. However, in this case it was an unprecedented bad decision. Without indisputable evidence to the contrary, the field umpire decided to overturn his own call and rule Kuhns safe. “I’ve never seen anything like that,” Walton said, still perplexed long after the game. “I’ve seen calls be overturned

but I’ve never seen calls be overturned that dramatic. We were in the dugout, ready to hit and everything.” Hampden-Sydney’s Beau Flinchum agreed. “We’ve never seen a call that’s gotten reversed then switched again, so we really didn’t know what to think,” he said. When R-MC head coach Ray Hedrick stormed onto the field he was told that Walton’s foot came off the bag. “I beg to differ. I was a little loud with it,” Hedrick said. “I just don’t think that call can happen in that situation. He made the call. He had to stick by the call. He can’t lean on the home plate umpire because there’s a runner on second, rounding third that (the plate umpire) has to bear down on. “Just stick with the call,” Hedrick said. “If it’s right, it’s right. If it’s wrong it’s wrong.” Was the call worse than umpire Jim Joyce blowing the perfect game of Detriot’s

Armando Galarraga’s in 2010 or Jerry Meals’ gaff when Pittsburgh’s Michael McKenry didn’t tag Atlanta’s Julio Lugo in 2011? In many ways it was. In the case of Joyce and Meals video evidence showed that the calls were unquestionably bad. But in both cases, the umpires stuck to their guns and stood behind their decision in the game. The field umpire on Hugh Stephens Field did neither. He bowed to doubt, questioned his own call and compounded the error by changing his mind. Though only an out of focus photograph provides evidence from the play at RandolphMacon, it is clear that the play was incredibly close and thereby too close to overturn without proof to the contrary. With his action to overturn the play, the umpire showed complete disregard for the ageless credo of athletic officiating. “Make the call and stick with it.”

Lee-Davis Spring Break Tournament

Confederates sweep tourney slate By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com The Lee-Davis baseball squad has regularly used their Spring Break Tournament as an opportunity to discover what type of team they can be as they head into the meat of the Capital District schedule. This year the Confederates learned a lot, coming into the three game slate with a 4-3 record and emerging as the only team that did not suffer a loss. Lee-Davis took a 6-0 opening day win over Steward and defeated #10 St. Christopher’s 7-6. They then pulled out a 9-3 win over a Benedictine team ranked #2 in the VIS. The Confederates not only produced their trademark solid defense but repeatedly came up big at the plate with an across the board performance that produced 18 hits against top

competition. “I think some kids are really starting to accept their role,” said Lee-Davis head coach Kenny Lewis. “You know everybody wants to hit the home run. I think we’re starting to accept the role and they’re starting to see it works. If you can get on, steal a bag, advance on a dirt ball… If everybody does their job and you accept your role it makes for a really good situation and I think that’s kind of what we’re settling in to.” Thomas was on the mound in their opener and the C-fed ace gave up two hits while notching 14 strikeouts against Steward in the shutout. But Lewis wanted to see what his team could do without his ace pitching. What he got was some impressive performances on a young team that gained confidence as the tour-

ney went on. Facing St. Christopher’s in their early Thursday game, www.mechlocal.com pitcher Jacob Perks was clearly See slideshow online! not on his game, walking the first two Saint batters. Perks followed with a strikeout but then gave up a single and a double as the Saints quickly jumped out to a 2-0 lead. Perks had still not found his mojo in the second as he walked three of the first four batters he faced. “It just wasn’t his day,” Lewis said. “It happens. He’d be the first to tell you.” Rail thin righty Chad Baron came to the mound in relief with the bases loaded and gave up a two-RBI single to the Saints’ Porter Reinhart. But Baron responded strong and Charlie Leffler/the Local held St. Christopher’s to two Lee-Davis’ Brandon Johnson (4) races towards second as St. Christopher’s Giles Thompson, hits and one run over the next right, tries to corral the ball. Lee-Davis defeated the #10 Saints 8-7 and was the only team to not see LEE-DAVIS, pg. 39 `

The Mechanicsville Local April 18, 2012

It was an up and down two days for the Atlee baseball team in this year’s Spring Break Tournament. Playing in frigid, windy conditions on Wednesday, the Raiders split opening day games, dropping an 8-3 decision to Benedictine but bouncing back to pick up a 17-7 win over #10 St. Christopher’s in the nightcap. On Thursday, Atlee knocked off Steward 8-1 but fell to L.C. Bird 7-4. Atlee was clearly out of sync in their opener against the Cadets as multiple errors and misplays contributed to the loss. “A lot of little things add up when you’re not focused,” said Atlee head coach Barry Burton. “We’ve got five guys show up

here late today. “That’s tough and you know it’s going to be tough and you go out there and battle and do the best that you can but that’s being addressed and that’s going to continue being addressed. We’re not going to cry and pout and whine about it, just keep going,” Burton said. “I know that when circumstances happen it just creates an atmosphere that’s not conducive to anyone performing up to their abilities. Take nothing away from (Benedictine). They deserved it. They didn’t have all this rigmarole going on like we did. We got what we deserved.” It did little to help Atlee’s cause that they were facing a Benedictine team that is ranked #2 in the VIS. “They’re as good as any team

I’ve seen this year,” Burton said. “That’s taking nothing away from Hanover or anything, but they’re as good of a team as anybody.” Likewise it did not help the Raiders cause to face the Cadets’ top pitcher, senior righty Ryan Millican, who came into the contest with a season ERA of 0.67. Atlee did little to change that number, only scoring in the bottom of the seventh off Benedictine errors. “He was fantastic,” said Benedictine head coach Sean Ryan. “He’s been our arm this year. He’s been our ace, that’s exactly what we wanted him to be coming in as a senior… He threw with velocity and best of all he was able to mix in his off speed pitches and had a nice see ATLEE, pg. 39 `

three innings of work. “Chad’s one of those kids that doesn’t strike an imposing figure but all he does is, (he) does things right,” Lewis said. “In certain situations he’s been able to make the right pitches, he’s been able to get out of innings. He gives our pitching coach tremendous confidence in the bullpen. So you put him out in situations like that and obviously he doesn’t overpower you but he’s a very smart kid, he locates pitches, he’s got an out pitch that’s not necessarily a fast ball. He just does things right and he can always contribute.” With Baron holding the Saints scoreless, the C-fed offense went to work to tie the game. Trailing 2-0 in the bottom of the first, Lee-Davis began to chip away at the lead. With two out, Thomas was hit by a pitch

breaking ball today.” Millican picked up the win throwing a complete game, notching six strikeouts while giving up four hits to the normally potent Atlee bats. Even he was surprised at how well he performed. “I thought it was going to be a scrap all the way through; a five run game for both of us,” he said. “I thought it was going to be down to the last throw, the last inning tied up. I didn’t think we’d come out and hit like that. I didn’t think I’d come out and pitch like that. It worked out well as a team and got things done.” Cam Maxey started on the mound for the Raiders and through the first two innings it appeared as if the game was going to be a pitcher’s duel. But in the top of the third the Cadets begin to connect. Jordan Schmeer (2 for 3, 2B, run) led off with a bloop single

then stole second. Jessie Smith was walked by Worth Osgood setting up Perks with an opportunity to redeem himself at the plate. Perks connected on a RBI single to right, driving in Thomas and getting the speedy Smith to third. The C-feds continued to produce in the bottom of the second trailing 4-1. Sean King reached on a shot to left center then advanced to third when Osgood’s pickoff throw went to the fence. Haiden Lamb then drove King home on a shot to short. The Lee-Davis offense didn’t slow in the bottom of the third. Thomas led things off by reaching second when his shot to right was dropped. Smith was once again walked and a groundout to short from Perks put both runners in scoring position. Baron then helped his own cause with a shot to deep left center that was dropped allowing Thomas and Smith to knot the game 4-4.

The Confederates took the lead in the bottom of the fourth. Lamb led off with a single to right then advanced to second when Chad Woodell’s shot to left was dropped. A sacrifice to right from Thomas moved Lamb to third and Smith finally got a chance to swing the bat, sending a single through the gap to drive Lamb home for a 5-4 lead. Perks was walked to load the bags and a single to right from Baron drove in Woodell. Adam Smith then drove in Jessie Smith for a 7-4 lead. The Saints got one back with two out in the top of the fifth to pull within two, 7-5. With Baron having thrown his most pitches so far this season, Lee-Davis decided to make a pitching change and went with Jacob Johnson in the sixth. “You’ve got to give kids an opportunity,” Lewis said. “They’re chomping at the bit. It’s a non-district game. We want to win and we want to win desper-

ately but you’ve got to find out who can get it done as we get into our district schedule.” Unfortunately, like Perks, Johnson was off his game and the Saints took advantage. Johnson walked three of the first four batters he faced then Charlie Yorgen scored on a wild pitch to pull St. Christopher’s within one, 7-6. Johnson bounced back with a strikeout and a fly ball to right to escape the inning without further damage. Even though Patrick Holler was slated to start in the nightcap, Lee-Davis made the decision to bring him in as the closer in the top of the seventh. Holler was nothing short of brilliant, striking out the side to seal the win. “I was kind of torn between making some switches defensively, bring somebody else in there,” Lewis said. “But it’s a good situation for him. He may be able to help us in that situation and sure enough he did a

really good job for us.” Lewis felt that the victory was one that will definitely help them as the season goes on. “I think that’s a tremendous confidence builder for the rest of the kids because that was a team effort,” he said. “We had to staff it. We had a lot of kids out there in a close situation so I think that’s a good confidence builder for them. I’m thrilled that we won a close game with someone not named Michael Thomas on the mound.” Lee-Davis got strong pitching in their nightcap against a potent Benedictine squad and held them to four hits. At the plate, the C-feds continued to roll as Jesse Smith (1 for 4, 3 RBIs), Woodell (2 for 2, 2 2B, 3 RBIs, 2 runs) and Sean King (2 for 3, 2 runs) led the offense. The Confederates face their biggest challenge of the season this Tuesday when they host #3 Hanover at 7 p.m.

over first, Colton Konvicka singled to left and a double to right center by Michael Childress (2run, 2B) sent the pair home for a 2-0 lead. The Cadets lead grew to 30 when Childress attempted to steal third and the pickoff throw went wide. Atlee looked as if they would answer in the bottom of the inning but the Cadets came up with spectacular defensive plays. Millican corralled a Mike Harmon shot to the mound but stutter-stepped the bag at first as both players reached at the same time and Harmon was ruled safe. With two outs, Chop Pulisic singled up the middle and Harmon advanced to third. Next up, Ruch sent what appeared to be an easy RBI shot up the middle but Cadet short stop David Geary made a spectacular play. Geary dove behind second to stop the ball and while still sliding on his side pitched to Schmeer at sec-

ond to force out Pulisic. “I told them that was a Major League play,” Ryan told his team. “He made the dive, got up and Jordan was there to call for the ball. I thought that was fantastic.” As difficult as the play was, it was topped in the bottom of the sixth. Once again it was Ruch at the plate who this time lofted a ball foul on the right side. Subbing in at first for the Cadets, Shane Williams raced after the ball and made a diving catch over the fence as he crashed into it. “I told the team that’s the best catch we’ve ever had from any first baseman in my nine years,” Ryan said. “That was a heck of a catch and he just did a great job of realizing where he was, holding onto the ball and selling out.” Millican agreed. “I’d never seen something like that before,” he said. “That was a hell of a play by him.” The Cadets added one more

in the top of the fifth and broke the game open in the top of the seventh. Facing Atlee reliever Josh Dunn, Konvicka was walked then stole second. With one out, Geary reached on a balk bringing Caleb Myers to the mound. A single to the left by Sam Slough drove in Konvicka then Adam Donohoe (2 for 4, HR, 4 RBIs) cleared the bags with a shot over the right field fence for an 8-0 Cadet lead. The Raiders got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the seventh but it was too little, too late. Atlee’s Mitch Keeler led off with a single to left and David Graubies reached when his shot to short was bobbled. With one out, Roy Coates loaded the bases for the Raiders when Millican was called for a balk, the umpires fourth such call of the day; two against each team. With two out, Millican walked Spencer Jefferson to push home Keeler for Atlee’s

first run of the day. Next up, Atlee’s Pulisic lived up to his nickname and sent a chopper to the mound. Millican made a leaping stop on the ball but his throw to first went over the fence and Atlee scored its final two runs of the game. Despite the lopsided score, Ryan felt his team had to play its best to beat the Raiders. “I think they’re talented top to bottom and I thought their pitcher did a nice job of keeping us off balance,” Ryan said of Atlee. “We had three runs and I thought for a while that’s all we’re going to get. When we got the three runs, we got a shot, I thought it would be nice to add on, but they’re a tough lineup to pitch to because they’re well coached and they do a good job with two strikes putting a bat on the ball and making the play.” On the other hand, Burton felt his squad’s mentality coming into the contest held the Raiders back. “If you’re really ready to rock and roll, ready to play I feel
