Summer 2021 Sports Specific Skill Days

Times: Monday 10:00 am-11:00 am & Wednesday 11:00am-12:00pm

The College Park Baseball Coaches will be hosting baseball specific skill days this summer.  The UIL has given us the opportunity to work with students grades 7-12 during the summer months. We will be running various drills for offense, defense and pitching in an effort to improve individual skills. The UIL has changed the time allotment for each athlete. Each athlete shall attend no more than 90 minutes per day of sport specific skill instruction with no more than 60 minutes per day in a given sport, Monday-Friday. We will be constantly monitoring to ensure that your child is safe while working on baseball skills. Below are the dates and times of the summer schedule. We encourage all students planning to play baseball for College Park to attend. However, these workouts are not mandatory to be a part of the College Park Baseball Program. If you have questions, please email Coach Faherty at mfaherty@conroeisd.net.  Place: The Diamonds at College Park

Dates: Mondays: 6/7, 6/21, 6/28, 7/5, 7/12, 7/19, 7/26  (Offense) / Wednesdays:  6/9, 6/23, 6/30, 7/7, 7/14, 7/21, 7/28  (Defense)

2021 Season Comes To An End

 

"You spend a good piece of your life gripping a baseball and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time"

 

College Park ended the season with a 6-1 loss to Bridgeland on Friday night.  The Cavs ended their 2021 campaign 19-14-1, 2nd place in district, and a Regional Playoff appearance.  As with any sport, it comes down to match ups and Bridgeland was a tough second round match up.  Tip your cap to The Bears who pitched well, hit well, moved runners, and executed.  You can also tip your cap to CP and Coach Faherty.  The 2021 Cavs have set a standard for future teams to follow.  Every player on this team improved their game in some fashion.  

 

Bridgeland started a junior Justin Kim who lasted 1.2 innings and struggled with control. He allowed 0 runs and 2 hits, walking 3 batters and striking out 2.  Will Croft came in for relief and trew 5.1 innings for the Bears.  The junior right hander gave up 1 run on 5 hits.  He struck out 6 CP batters and walked 1. The Cavs had their chances in the game loading the bases in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd innings but were unable to get the timely hit.

 

In an elimination game CP had all arms on deck and would use three pitchers in the game.  Carter Gorling got the start and went 2.2 innings.  He gave up 4 runs on 6 hits, walking 2 and striking out 2.  Andrew Vorst (3.1 inn, 2 runs, 3 hits, 3 walks, and 3 K’s) and Logan Murray (1 inn, 0 runs, 0 hits, 1 walk, 1 K) both saw action in the game.

 

Offensively the Cavs were better in game 2 but still only managed 1 run vs The Bears.  Hassan Malik (3 for 3, with a walk) and Alex Diaz (2 for 3, 1 RBI) were the offensive standouts for the Cavs.  As a team the Cavs were 7 for 27 (.259 ave) in the game.

It’s been a pleasure being a part of College Park Baseball and running the website.  The website is a window to our program, and I was hoping to show that we have good players, good coaches, great facilities and supportive families.  We have a lot to be proud of at College Park, and our sports programs have continued to improve over the years.  It’s been a joy watching the kids develop and be part of that journey.  Good luck to future Cavaliers and try to live like you have a 3-1 count.

Cavs Drop Game One 5-1

College Park dropped the first game of the series to Bridgeland 5-1 at Cy Woods last night.  Bridgeland started TCU commit Murphy Brooks who threw 5.1 innings for the Bears in the win.  The junior right hander gave up 0 runs on 2 hits and struck out 8 CP batters.  College Park utilized 3 pitchers on the evening in the loss.  Hank Hudson got the start and lasted 3.1 innings.  He gave up 3 runs on 4 hits, walking 3 and striking out none.  Logan Murry (1.2 inn, 0 runs, 1 hit, 2 walks, 1 HBP, 2 K’s) and Dylan Brunner (1.0 inn, 2 runs, 1 hit, 1 walk, 1 HBP, 0 K) both saw action in relief.  

The Bridgeland pitchers made it tough on College Park at the plate.  As a team CP was 3 for 21 at bats with a .143 average.  The lone run came in the top of the 7th when Holden Rook hit a sac fly to score Carson Nolen.  The Cavs loaded the bases in the 6th and 7th but were not able to get the timely hit.

Season In Review

Looking back on this season, this senior class, and the varsity team, one thing for sure is they are resilient.  Coming into this season there was not one highly touted preseason D1 player filling this roster.  There was no preseason hype from Vype Magazine or Student Center.  This team was coming off a season that was taken away from them by a pandemic.  They continued to work hard day in and day out becoming what they are, baseball players.  The 2021 Cavalier Team looked inward, bought into their coach, and worked to get better.  

“One of the beautiful things about baseball is that every once in a while you come into a situation where you want to, and where you have to, reach down and prove something.”  -Nolan Ryan

Coming out of the tournament season and into district play, the team was 7-6-1 and looked like an average baseball team.  Although the Cavs had played good competition, their play seemed to be inconsistent at best.  The district campaign started with a rain delay and a loss to Grand Oaks at home.  After playing 7 district games the Cavs found themselves at 3-4 in district play and on the road at Conroe in a must win game.  Heading into the 6th inning of that affair, the Cavs were down 7-0 and staring at another loss, and a 3-5 district record.  Over the next 2 innings the Cavs would score 10 runs and walk off the field with a 10-7 victory.  This was the spark that this team needed and was the turning point of the season.  

After the Conroe victory, the Cavs would go 7-2 overall and win 6 of their next 7 district games.  Those victories would include 2 wins over Oak Ridge and The Woodlands.  This team would solidify a playoff spot for the first time since 2018.  Heading into the last game of the season they were in a 3-way tie for 2nd place.  This team would finish in 2nd place in district play, which is its highest district finish since 2015.  Looking back, this team was nothing but resilient and dug down deep when it mattered.  Maybe it was 6 am weight room, maybe it was chemistry, maybe it was leadership, maybe just maybe, ……it was the mullets?

“I became a good pitcher when I stopped trying to make them miss the ball and started trying to make them hit it” – Sandy Kofax

On the mound the Cavaliers had 3 senior work horses that were consistent throughout the season.  Hank Hudson, Logan Murray, and Carter Gorling made up the starting rotation for the Cavs.  Andrew Vorst settled in the role as closer and showed signs of dominance towards the end of the season.  The future is bright for the Cavs as Dylan Brunner and Conner Judge seem to be the go-to guys in upcoming seasons.

“No baseball pitcher would be worth a darn without a catcher who could handle the hot fastball.”  -Casey Stengel

Like an offensive lineman, nobody notices you until you mess up.  Catchers get the same rap by most fans, but there might not be a more important position on the field.  Too bad there is not a stat for blocked balls, receiving, framing, and calling a good game.  The Cavs started two catchers this season Cal Garcia and Ben Blanchard and both were solid behind the plate.  

  • C. Garcia: 84.2 INN, 10 PB, 23-28 SB-ATT, 5 CS
  • B. Blanchard: 15 INN, 1 PB, 0-0 SB-ATT, 0 CS

Part 2

“During my 18 years I came to bat almost 10,000 times.  I struck out about 1,700 times and walked maybe 1,800 times.  You figure a ballplayer will average about 500 at-bats a season.  That means I played 7 years without ever hitting the ball.”  -Mickey Mantle

Cavs Take 2nd in DISTRICT 13-6A

"The way a team plays as a whole determines its success.  You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don't play together, the club wont be worth a dime".  -Babe Ruth

2015 was the last College Park Team to win a series vs the Woodlands.  That streak just ended today with a 2-1 extra inning victory over the Woodlands.  Heading into the top of the 8th inning the Cavs were down 2 outs when Holden Rook hit a double in the gap.  Haasan Malik was the next batter, and Rook stole 3rd base on a 1-1 count.  He would then score on a pass ball on the same at bat.  The Cavs would fail to get another run in the inning.  Holding onto a 1 run lead the Cavs entered the bottom of the 8th.  The Woodlands would strand runners at 1st and 2nd as Carter Gorling struck out Escovedo to end the game.

The Highlanders started Baylor Commit Brayden Sharp who was victorious in game one vs the Cavs earlier this season.  Sharp did not disappoint as he threw 111 pitches over 7.2 innings.  His running fast ball and curve kept the Cavs off balance as he gave up 1 run on 4 hits while striking out 11.  The Cavs started Hank Hudson who again answered the call.  Hank pitched 5.1 innings giving up only 1 run on 4 hits.  He walked 3 batters and struck out none.  Carter Gorling would come in the 6th inning with 1 out, and finished out the 8 inning affair (2.2 inn, 0 runs, 2 hits, 1 walk, 2 K’s).

Offensive production was tough going in this game, and the Cavs relied on their pitching and defense to win this one.  The Cavs were clean in the field and turned the double play of the season in the bottom of the 7th inning.  With one out and a runner on first, Zac Pine would ground to Hank Hudson at first who would turn a 3-6-3 DP to end the threat.  

As a team the Cavs were 4 for 26 at the plate.  But as the old saying goes, “it ain’t how many, it’s when you get em”.  The hottest Cav as of late is Holden Rook, and he led the team going 2 for 3 and scoring the winning run on a passed ball.  

  • 1B: Rook, Helton, Hudson
  • 2B: Rook
  • RBI: Helton
  • Stolen Bases 2/2: Rook, Diaz

The Cavs complete the regular season 18-12-1 and 10-5 in District 13-6A.  Those numbers are good enough for second place in one of the toughest districts in the state.  Congratulations to these kids and the toughness they have shown throughout the season.  There is no doubt they are battle tested and ready for playoffs.  As of today, it looks like the Cavs will play the 3rd place team in Spring ISD (Westfield?) with time and place TBA.  

On another note, this senior class beat the Woodlands in football, swept them in basketball, and won the series in baseball.  I let someone else see when the last time that happened -Just Sayin.

Cavs Get Sweep, Move Into 2nd Place

"Baseball gives every American boy a chance to excel, not just to be as good as someone else but to be better than someone else.  This is the nature of man and the name of the game. -Ted Williams

The College Park Cavaliers 17-12-1 (9-5) had a season high 15 hits and scored 13 runs in their season sweep of Oak Ridge on Tuesday night.  With the victory the Cavs enter the final district game in a 3-way tie for second place in district 13-6A.  The Cavs bats have gotten hot as of late outscoring their opponents 37-12 in the last 3 games.  At the plate the Cavs were 15 for 37 (.405 ave) and had four players with multiple hits.  Holden Rook led the way, going 4 for 4 on the evening at the plate.  Hank Hudson, Haasan Malik and Carson Nolen also had multiple hits in the 13-7 victory.

RBI: Hudson (3), Helton (2), Rook (2), Garcia, Bermudez, Gorling

Stolen Bases 6/6:  Rook (3), Malik, Hudson, Gorling

The Cavs would use 3 different pitchers in the game.  Hank Hudson would get the start and he lasted 2.1 innings, giving up 2 runs on 3 hits.  He walked 3 batters, 2 HBP, and struck out 0.  Logan Murray pitched 3.1 innings in middle relief.  He gave up 5 runs on 2 hits, walking 6, and striking out 3.  Dylan Brunner closed out the game pitching 1.1 innings, giving up no runs on 1 hit, and struck out 3 batters.  

The regular season comes to an end Friday afternoon at Scotland Yard when the Cavs face the Highlanders in the final game of The Battle of the Woods.  The Highlanders won game one (7-1) and The Cavs won game two (5-4).  With a victory, the Cavs could finish second place in district which would be its best finish in district since the 2015 season.  One other Cavalier team has finished second in district, it was the 2007 Team.  In other important district match ups, Grand Oaks will face Oak Ridge in their last game of the season.

College Park clinched a playoff spot with a 11-4 road victory at Willis.  With the victory, The Cavs swept the season series vs Willis.  The Cavaliers improved their overall record to 15-12-1 and are 7-5 in district play.  Hank Hudson gave the Cavs 6 solid innings on the mound.  He earned the victory throwing 77 pitches and giving up 4 runs on 6 hits.  He walked 1 batter while striking out 6.  Logan Murray earned the save by facing 5 batters in the 7th inning and striking out the side.   

The Cavaliers got things going in the top of the 3rd inning by scoring 4 runs, and never gave up the lead.  As a team the Cavs were 11 for 32 (.344 ave) and 5 of the hits were for extra bases.  Willis would use 2 different pitchers in the game giving up 10 earned runs. The Wildcats walked 5 batters and struck out 11.

There are three things you can do in a baseball game.  You can win, or you can lose, or it can rain.   -Casey Stengel

Last night Cavalier Fans got the win after a 45-minute rain delay.  The delay came with bases loaded and two outs in the top of the 7th inning, with the Cavs hanging on to a one run lead.  After the delay, Carter Gorling took the mound and struck out South Alabama commit Justin Barry-Smith looking on a 3-2 count for the win.  The Cavs walked off the field 1-1 in The Battle of the Woods Series in a game that did not disappoint.  The Cavaliers 14-10-1 (6-4) have won 5 games in a row and find themselves a game out of 1st place in the district race with just 5 games to go. 

The Highlanders started Tx State Commit Dylan Kerbow, and the Cavs would get to him early.  Kerbow would last only 2 innings giving up 4 runs on 4 hits while walking 1 batter and striking out 2.  James Marin (1 run, 2 hits, 0 walks, 4 K’s) came in in relief, and gave the Highlanders 4 solid innings on the mound.  The Cavaliers would take advantage of 4 Highlander errors on the evening.  As a team the Cavs were 6 for 25 AB with a .240 ave.

Coming off a disappointing loss to Conroe, The Cavaliers rebounded beating Oak Ridge 3-2 last evening. Hank Hudson lead the way on the mound and at the plate in the game.  Hudson kept the War Eagles off balance pitching a complete game (7 inn, 4 hits, 2 runs, 1 walk, 1 hbp, and 6 K’s).  Oak Ridge’s only threat came in the bottom of the 6th down 3-0.  The War Eagles were on their way to a comeback after scoring 2 runs.  With the bases loaded and only one out, Wells hit a sac fly to Hassan Malik who hosed the tag up runner (Howard) at the plate for an inning ending double play.  The Cavs played error free in the field and hung on for the victory, improving their district record to 2-2.

It was March 26, 2019 and 718 days ago when CP Varsity won its last district game defeating Klein 10-3.  Last night the Cavs broke a 10 game district losing streak, and earned the win defeating Willis 8-3.  With the wind blowing out, the stadium played like a softball field and the Cavs found themselves in a 3-0 deficit heading into the top of the 4th.  The Cavs came from behind scoring 2 in the 4th, 3 in the 6th, and 3 in the 7th for the victory. 

Carter Gorling got the start pitching 5.2 inn, giving up 3 runs, 4 hits, walking 2, and striking out 5 batters.  Dylan Brunner (1 inn, 1 run, 1 hit, 3 BB) attempted to close the door, but ran into some trouble in the bottom of the 7th.  With the bases loaded and two outs, Coach Faherty gave the ball to Conner Judge who got a 2 pitch ground out to Hank Hudson seal the game.

The Cavs outhit the Grizzlies 10-6 in the loss.  The team hit .300 on the evening, earning 2 walks, striking out 6 times, and all 4 runs were earned.  The Cavs stranded 8 runners on base.  The offensive production should have been enough to solidify a win, but 3 untimely errors and walks cost the Cavs a victory.

The 2021 Sr. Class has high expectations and looks to make a return trip to the playoffs since 2018.  A lot has happened at College Park since the 2018 Varsity Team went four rounds deep in the playoffs.  That team was 21-19-1 overall, 7-7 in district, and lost to Round Rock in round 4 of the state playoffs.  The following year was tough when varsity went 5-22 and 2-14 in district play.  It was only the 2nd time in CP history they did not make playoffs.  That season ended with Head Coach Jason Washburn leaving for Sam Houston State, and Mike Faherty came over from Memorial HS as the new head coach.  

In his first year at the helm, Coach Faherty inherited a young varsity team that only had two senior starters.  Faherty quickly let his expectations known to his players with his upbeat and fiery attitude.  The 2020 Varsity Team seemed to be buying in to the culture change last season when it was cut short by COVID.  After beating Morton Ranch at the Brenham Tournament, the 2020 season was cancelled.  When the lights were turned out, the Varsity Team found themselves 5-8 overall and 0-2 in district in an important program building season.

With 2020 behind us the future is bright for College Park Baseball.  The senior class is filled with under rated scrapy baseball players who are looking to get CP Baseball back on track.  There are also numerous under classman who will contribute to this Varsity Team.  As we head into this season, let’s keep “Watering The Bamboo” and watch it grow.

Congratulations Ty!

Ty commits to the University of Dallas!  He becomes the 5th player from the 2021 Class who will play in college.  

Congratulations Carter!

Carter Gorling commits to Colorado School Of Mines.  Gorling becomes the 4th CP Cavalier in the 2021 Class who will play in college.
