2018 Varsity Baseball Team Awards and Honor Ceremony: November 2018
September 7, 2018

The following announcement is to honor the 2018 Varsity Baseball team. The team was not able to get together in the summer to gather and honor their fellow teammates due to a variety of reasons including Legion Baseball, Travel baseball, vacations, etc… So to honor the team and all of our seniors we would like to gather on Saturday – November 24 at noon at a place to be determined for a brief luncheon and recognition ceremony. Being the Thanksgiving holiday – it will give us the best chance of most all the players being home. Senior gifts will be given out with photos from senior day and team awards recognized. Parents are welcome to attend. A communication will be sent out about the details sometime in the fall. Please follow us here at www.roverbaseball.com and at Twitter @roverbaseball.

The 2018 Varsity baseball season was one to remember! The season showed us what the word "team" means as all of the members of the team contributed in so many ways to make the 19-4 season a success. They were able to respond to adversity, keep their heads up in tough times, and represented EAHS very well making all of us very proud.

The team worked very hard in the off-season and it paid great dividends as our success showed on the field! The team was the Steel Division Champion and had a 17-2 overall record in the regular season along with a 15-1 conference record for the number one seed in the EPC tournament. We would go onto defeat Emmaus in the EPC Semi Finals and eventually lost to Parkland in the EPC Championship to garner the silver medal.

While this team always had "Team" goals in mind – there were some individual achievements that should be recognized. As I stated earlier – all members of our team were instrumental in our success but here are the award winners and moments to highlight from 2018.

Zach Spray, Scott Poulson, Chris Hess and Eddie Olsen – Captains Leadership Awards - These four young men were tremendous leaders by their performance on the practice and game field throughout the season but also were influential in keeping our team focused and directed towards our goals and will receive recognition for their leadership role.

Zach Spray – Selected 2nd Team OF in the EPC – Honorable Mention Morning Call and Lehigh Valley Live
Chris Hess – Honorable Mention – Infield – EPC, Morning Call, and Lehigh Valley Live
Scott Poulson – Honorable Mention – Pitcher – EPC, Morning Call, and Lehigh Valley Live
Eddie Olsen – All - EPC Conference Pitcher – First Team, 1st Team Morning Call, and 1st Team Lehigh Valley Live
Luke Storm – 2nd Team - EPC – Infield, 2nd Team Morning Call and 2nd Team Lehigh Valley Live
Cam Hubbard – All- EPC Conference MVP – Outfielder, 1st Team Morning Call, and 1st Team Lehigh Valley Live

EAHS Scholar Athlete Nominee – Baseball - Chris Pambianchi – excellence in academics. Chris Hess was runner- up in Athletic and Academic combination award – Collin Campbell also had a great academic year.

Terry Bartolet – MVP AwardCameron Hubbard
This award given to the player who has the most complete numbers and considered to have the best year on the field. This is an award that is strictly based on field performance. Cam was selected as the EPC Most Valuable Player by the coaches and First team All Area by both papers. Cam was injured in early May but prior to that posted a .587 batting average getting 27 hits with 5 doubles, 7 triples, and 2 home runs. He scored a remarkable 28 runs from the leadoff spot and did all of this in 15 games.

Eddie Snyder Award - Christopher Hess
Eddie Snyder was an outstanding athlete, respected teacher, and a successful coach. He taught his players to be aggressive, to be devoted to the game, to respect teammates and coaches, and to have high ideals in sportsmanship. Coach Snyder also stressed high standards in academics and leadership both on and off the field. Chris was our Scholar Athlete Runner - up academically, served on the EPC 18 Character Council of High Schools in his junior and senior years representing EAHS, and also was a captain in his senior season. He performed very well on the field receiving Honorable Mention from the Morning Call, The Express Times, and The EPC Coaches hitting a solid overall .350 and .395 in the EPC and manning a solid second base. All of the above factors – academically, character council, team captaincy, and his on field performance make Chris Hess an excellent selection for the meaning of the Eddie Snyder Award.

Pete Violante Pitching AwardEddie Olsen
This award embodies the best pitcher in the program each year by record, ERA, wins, etc. The award is named after Pete Violante’s 9 win season in 2016 for the District 11 Champions and top 8 in the state Red Rovers in Classification 4A.

This year’s winner is Eddie Olsen who crafted a 6-0 league regular season record with a 0.72 ERA. Overall he was 7-2 with a 1.77 ERA and had 61 strikeouts to 11 walks on the season in 43.1 Innings pitched.

Mark Cooley Teammate AwardBailey Bevins
This award is for a player who is the essential teammate – one whom works selflessly to support the others around him and has one thing in mind – team success. He is coachable, polite, and has all the attributes of supporting his teammates at all times. Bailey Bevins has been a great teammate throughout his career in the baseball program and is being honored for this award.

Please look for a future announcement regarding our team meeting in November to celebrate and honor our seniors and award winners and the special 19-4 team!

Fall Baseball - 2018
July 31, 2018

Easton will be participating in our annual 2018 Fall baseball league in conjunction with other high schools in the area starting in early September. Freedom, Phillipsburg, Salisbury, Whitehall, PV, and Stroudsburg are a part to just name a few. Generally, it includes about 10 teams and the season runs through approximately mid October. Generally, the schedule will have us playing two games a week on average during school days from Monday through Thursday. We do not have any scheduled weekend games which allows players to play tournament ball on weekends if they so desire.

The league is not affiliated with Easton High School Athletics due to PIAA rules out of season. Therefore the league will charge a fee for each team and player to pay for Insurance through USSSA, Balls, Umpires, Shirts and other league costs. The cost is determined by the need for all of the listed expenses. Again - The school does not pay for anything related to this program in the fall. The league feels the costs to be very reasonable as the goal of the league is to provide players with an outlet to improve their game in an inexpensive way.

In the past a fee of $125 was charged - we would expect that figure to remain constant. This fee can be made out to Easton Baseball. A future email will give a definite fee once confirmed and this fee will need to be received prior to the fall season at some point in August.

Players entering grades 8-12 are welcome to participate. We will field two teams based on age and grade level and ability level as well.

Players interested in participating in the fall - there are no tryouts or cuts. All players will be included in the league. Players should send Coach LaDuca their the following bits of information at laducac@eastonsd.org by August 20.
