OUR U.S COLLEGE BOYS ARE DOING WELL

The three Kent County boys we have been following in American college baseball have been putting up a pretty good accounting of themselves.
Larry Balkwill, 18, of Chatham put together four multi-hit games as the Siena College Saints went undefeated last week with wins over Holy Cross and New York Tech.  A freshman, Larry caught all four games (one a 13-inning affair) and emerged as a candidate for MAAC Rookie of the Week honors.  He currently leads Siena with a .390 batting average and is tied for the team lead with eight doubles.  He also has 23 hits, 14 runs scored and 10 RBIs.

The sophomore Cook twins of Dresden have also been prominent in spring season opening games with Indian Hills Community College Falcons.  The Falcons won six of seven games on a trip to Arizona last week.  In his second start of the young season, Matt Cook (blow, left) allowed only four hits in six innings of work, handing Gateway CC a 5-1 drubbing.  He has also been swinging a hot bat for Indian Hills from the first base position that he plays when not pitching.

Brother Justin (right)started the Falcons' season opener and allowed only three hits and two runs in a one-sided 13-5 win over Williston State (N.D.).  Justin is also a versatile third baseman.

Good going guys, but all uncle Jarvis (Cook) and I can say is: "We were born 60 years too soon!"
