    That means he was hit once every 3.8 games, nearly equaling the rate of once every 3.04 games by Montreal Expos second baseman Ron Hunt when he set the modern (since 1900) major league record by getting hit 50 times in 1971.

    Perry Central Coach Rick Graves said he wasn’t sure how much Brewster would be able to pitch because he had strained his neck lifting weights earlier in the day. But he looked strong throughout.
