                                                                           Civic Pride Lifts Hopewell All-Stars
By NEIL FULLER, Sports Editor
... Jul 15, 2012, 19:22



(Hopewell News/Neil Fuller) Right-hander Trey Burton threw a complete-game three-hitter, striking out nine, in a 12-2 victory to open the 2012 Hopewell Optimist Baseball Classic.


HOPEWELL — When Trey Burton threw the opening pitch of the 2012 Hopewell Optimist Baseball Classic on Friday night, he was doing it with civic pride in his heart.

And the young right-hander’s heart — and arm — proved to be too much for the Colonial Heights Quarterback lineup.

Burton tossed a complete-game three-hitter, striking out nine, as the Hopewell All-Stars claimed a 12-2 win in Youth Division play at Mathis Park.

"I had some jitters at the beginning," Burton said. "But there’s a sense of pride that goes with wearing a Hopewell uniform. That pride is there always."

Ronnie Caricofe went 3 for 3, including a two-run triple that sparked a 10-run third inning by Hopewell, and Jordan Lowe drove in three runs.

No Hopewell batter was retired via strikeout.

"I'm very excited about this team," Hopewell coach David Hock said. "I loved the way we made contact throughout the lineup. ... We have guys that hit the ball hard. We have some guys that can do it all.

"Hopewell boys are about community pride. That's the way all of us are — even me, when I was little. Representing Hopewell is just something we do."

Burton went 2 for 3 with an RBI triple at the plate and Owen Aprahamian delivered a two-run single in a game halted after Colonial Heights batted in the top of the fourth.

Dawsyn Hock added an RBI double in the victory.

Here I go again thanking everyone for a job well done.  Special thanks to Joe Moore and Team Captains for the long hours they spent at the tree lot, resulting in a great year.  Excellent sales in trees and wreaths and we all enjoyed good food while working there too.

A big thank you to Paul and Judy Hamby for buying and distributing gifts to our Christmas family.  We collected so much food, after giving to the family, we were able to donate a truck load to the Hopewell Food Bank in honor of John Cutrona.

As we ended 2008, we started 2009 with a BANG! (or was that Bill Rawls trying to get the karaoke machine to work).  We at least got one song from "Old Blue Eyes".
John L did a great job setting up the building and furnishing us with good music to bring in the New Year.  Because of the small group remaining, we decided to have a breakfast on Wednesday, January 7th.  Hope to see everyone there.

Plans are in the works for a Super Bowl get together.  Spread the word and let's get as many to attend as we can.  I hope at this time to show my appreciation for all your hard work so far this year.   More information to follow!!

In closing I hope you and your families had a Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year.

Monthly words of wisdom:  "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about 
                                         learning to dance in the rain.

And as always, "Happy trails to you, till we meet again".

President
