$60M Texas high school stadium closed by cracks


May 22, 2014

A $60 million high school football stadium that opened to massive fanfare in 2012 will be shut down for the upcoming season after cracks were found in the building's concrete concourse.

Administrators in Allen, Texas, northeast of Dallas, had hoped to have Eagle Stadium ready for this fall's games, but said further inspections found the structural problems will need significant repair. They insist the architectural firm and construction company will fund any repairs.

The district said Tuesday that both companies had offered $1 million each to allow repairs to begin, but that their insurance companies refused to make the payments.

"Our commitment to Allen students and taxpayers remains firm that the stadium be repaired properly at the expense of those responsible for the failure: the architect and the builder," superintendent Lance Hindt said in a statement.

Allen taxpayers approved a $119 million bond issue that included funding for the 18,000-seat stadium, with

A long, long start for a Washington state high school pitcher caught the attention of Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price.

The Centralia Chronicle reports (http://is.gd/zTKhzT ) Rochester's Dylan Fosnacht threw 194 pitches as he took a shutout into the 15th inning of a tournament game on Tuesday. The right-hander wound up with a no-decision when his team beat La Center 1-0 in the 17th inning.

Fosnacht struck out 17 while allowing seven hits and three walks.

Price took notice of the performance on Twitter, telling Fosnacht "you're a beast ... but let's be a little smarter brotha!!" Price suggested his coach should be fired for letting the young pitcher risk injury by staying in the game so long.

Rochester coach Jerry Striegel told The Chronicle he checked in with his pitcher every inning to make sure he was OK.

Video of Sanderson's Ryan Jeffers' walk-off double


May 15, 2014

I posted a blog last night about not being there to see the game, but thanks to YouTube, we can all see the last hit.

With a 3-2 count, and with Sanderson trailing Middle Creek 2-1 with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning, Ryan Jeffers hit the ball to right field, bringing in two RBIs and sealing the win.

Enjoy.
