    Major League Baseball keeps track of records for almost everything. I believe Jim Murray once wrote there’s even an official record for most home runs hit by a third baseman against a left-handed pitcher from Yugoslavia.

    But Washington Nationals rookie Bryce Harper has a chance to break a record that I consider pretty significant, even though a lot of people may not know about it.

  • Huber academic All-American too

    ITHACA, N.Y.—Perry Central graduate Nick Huber was earlier named a second-team NCAA Division I track All-American after finishing 11th in the nation in the decathlon as a senior for Cornell University this spring.

    Now he has been named a third-team academic All-American by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

    He compiled a 3.42 grade-point average as he earned a degree in industrial and labor relations.

    His point total in the decathlon made him an alternate for the U.S. Olympic trials.

    EVANSVILLE — Dylan Farmer no-hit the Hoosier Express for 5 2⁄3 innings as Evansville Pate beat the Express 9-3 in Senior Legion baseball Thursday.

    Farmer was a strong left-hander with good control, but Hoosier Express Coach Jay Burch felt his team helped Farmer by swinging at several pitches that would not have been strikes.

    “We expanded his strike zone,” said Burch. “He’s a good pitcher, but we beat him earlier in the season.”
