The payoff

Clem perseveres through knee injuries, earns top honor


McCoy was named a Gongaware Scholar by Indiana State and is receiving full in-state tuition to attend school there.

Corey Moss, P/C, Caston

The big right-hander was a workhorse for the Comets, going 5-4 with a 1.86 ERA in 64 innings pitched. He fanned 64 and walked 15.

“He had a 1.86 ERA and threw in a lot of big games,” Mollenkopf said. “He’s one of those players who was the heartbeat of our team. He worked as hard as anybody and was another coach on the field. He threw so many important innings for us.”

When he wasn’t pitching, Moss was the Comets’ starting catcher. He hit .300 with a .491 on-base percentage. He added 16 RBIs and 18 runs scored.

“Behind the plate defensively he’s as sound of a catcher that I’ve coached,” Mollenkopf said. “He’s not the quickest or the fleetest of foot, but his work ethic makes up for it. He’s a hard worker, a great kid. He’s left his mark over the last four years on our program.”

Travis Palmer, CF, Logansport

Palmer bounced back strongly this spring after a life-threatening car accident that occurred on July 19, 2012.

In his first full varsity baseball season, Palmer hit .333 with six doubles, one home run, 13 RBIs and 19 runs scored.

He was the Berries’ primary center fielder, but he also spent some time on the mound and went 3-1 with a 0.55 ERA in 12 2/3 innings pitched.

“He’s a real team leader,” Turner said. “He tied for our hitting title. He’s a real catalyst. When he’s going well our whole team seems to go well, too. He’s a good defensive player, very versatile.”

R.J. Phillips, OF, Cass

Phillips batted .358 with 10 stolen bases, 11 RBIs and 11 runs scored his junior season.

“R.J.’s a guy with a ton of talent,” Marschand said. “Depending on how hard he wants to work at it, he could be one of our better ones. He has tremendous speed. If he buys in, look out, he could be one of the best we’ve had. He’s picking up thing quickly. I look for good things from R.J.”
