Will Callaway, Tyler Tewell and Ryan Arrowood had big nights with their new teams Saturday night. Callaway, who is playing for the Hyannis Habor Hawks in the collegiate Cape Cod League, belted a walk off three-run homer Saturday night, leading the Hawks to a 9-6 win against the Harwich Mariners. That blow was Callaway's first home run of the year and it
handed the Harbor Hawks only their second win of the season. Callaway, a rising senior at Appalachian State University this coming season, is hitting .324 with seven runs scored, 12 hits, a home run and six runs-batted-in. He was 3-5 with two runs scored and four RBI in Saturday night's win.
Tyler Tewell, who was taken by the Altanta Braves in the 14th round of the Major League Baseball Draft, finally picked up his first professional hit Saturday night. It was a two-out, run-scoring single in a 9-8 loss against Gulf Coast League Yankees. Tewell, who started with the Danville (Va.) Braves of the Rookie-Appalachian League, has been sent to the Gulf Coast League Braves. He was 0-2 at Danville; he is 1-7 in three games with the GCL Braves for a .143 batting average.
And Ryan Arrowood just keeps rolling along. The right hander, who posted an undefeated season for the Mountaineers in 2012, which includes a win at the Charlottesville Regional against Oklahoma, remains unblemished so far this season. Arrowood went four innings for the Tric-City Dust Devils of the Class A Northwest League (affiliate of the Colorado Rockies) Saturday night. He gave up his first earned run on four hits with a strikeout. Arrowood has a 0.77 earned-run-average in three starts this season.
And apparantly Auburn assistant coach Link Jarrett is becoming a well sought after head-coaching prospect. Skipper's Dugout, which reported Saturday that ASU is eyeing Jarrett as possibly its new baseball coach, seems to have some competiton on its hands. The University of Maryland is also interested in speaking with Jarrett about possibly becoming the Terrapins new head coach....and Brevard College coach Matt McCay is scheduled for an interview this coming week concerning the head coaching job at UNC-Greensboro.
