Boys’ Latin’s Sam Grace is named Most Outstanding Player


Fifteen MIAA senior baseball players, all from the B and C Conferences got a dream opportunity on Tuesday at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, as they played in the President’s Cup.

Just two days after several other MIAA stars played in the Brooks Robinson All-Star Game at Oriole Park, this group of MIAA stars mixed with senior stars from Baltimore City schools to form two teams – the American and Nationals.

The Nationals, featuring Andrew and Matthew Sowinski of Annapolis Area Christian, Colton Smith, Evan Shertzer and Josh Young from Concordia Prep, Mark Fusco and Colin Ostenso of Key School, and Sam Grace of Boys’ Latin, won the game, 11-1.

Playing for the Americans Daryl Jackson and Austin Heid of Mount Carmel, Sam Haas and Jeremy Weinberg of Friends School, and Cole Sterry, Marcus Khademi and Tyler Russo of Glenelg Country.

In addition coaches Bill Greenwell (Boys Latin) and Gary Gallant (Key) represented the MIAA with the Nationals, while Chris Garber (Glenelg Country) and Mike Naunton (Mount Carmel) helped coach with the Americans.
