Five officers from Freddie Gray case face internal discipline

Hereford baseball team getting healthy for postseason

The Baltimore Sun

Hereford's baseball team blasted its way into the regular season with an 8-0 start and climbed as high as No. 11 in our poll before slipping to 11-5 and into the others considered list.

The fall began when their senior leadoff hitter and center fielder Josh Ketera suffered a hamstring injury and junior starting pitcher Eli Ginsburg developed a sore right elbow.

Ketera was batting near .500 at the time and clearing the sky of fly balls, while Ginsburg had a 4-0 record with a 2.65 ERA.

When those two went out, Hereford lost five of its next eight games.

Now, both players are about to re-enter the lineup and coach Todd Hartshorn sounds confident.

"I think we're going to make a run," he said, looking to the playoffs. "I think we could get a little lucky."
