Cadet Pitcher Dan Herrmann held Parkway North hitless until the third inning.
Parkway North may have been the number one seed in the district four baseball playoff tournament which concluded Wednesday on the Vikings' campus, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a much better team coming down the stretch than the CBC Cadets, who won 8 eight of their last nine heading into the title game against Parkway North. Wednesday, the Cadets got to North pitcher Joe Hope early and chased the Sophomore after taking a 5-0 second inning lead behind two early RBI by CBC's Bobby Lang en route to an 11-6 win. The Cadets got five innings from starter Dan Herrmann, who didn't give up a hit until an Ellis Brodsky single in the third inning. The Parkway North (20-6) bench complained about getting squeezed in the strike zone early, but shaky…

The Vikings had a nip and tuck game vs. the rival Colts Monday afternoon, with a birth in the district final on the line.
One hit. That's all it took for Parkway North to get what the Vikings needed to advance past Parkway Central in a district semifinal played at North Monday afternoon. With a man on in the first inning, Colt starter Brian Hillhouse struck out Parkway North's Jon Shanker, but Central could not complete the putout at first base when the ball escaped the cather. North's Garrett Taylor followed that up with a RBI double, the only Viking hit of the game, scoring two runs. An errant throw on a double play conversion plated a third run to back Sophomore starter Joey Reeves. He'd need every one of those runs as Hillhouse shut down the Vikings for the remainder of the game. Reeves worked out of jams throughout the game, except for a Zack Lazenby …

The first pitch of the game gave at least one player goosebumps.
The record books will show that Parkway North defeated Kirkwood Tuesday afternoon in a win that clinched a conference championship for the Vikings. While Connor Ladig got credit for the win, the victor for the day may be sportsmanship. Parkway North had Brian Thal, a student manager enrolled in the school's Special Education program, take the mound. As Head Baseball Coach Fred Friedman told Patch Blogger Helga Taylor: A couple of weeks ago, our seniors mentioned they wanted Brian to throw out a first pitch for Senior Day, but we wanted him to have a bigger and better experience. With the gracious support of Coach Shaw and Kirkwood, we were able to arrange for him to actually be the starting pitcher of record, and for Brian's safety, …

Vikings are 16-3 this season. Joey Reeves pitches a 4-hit gem over the Rams.
The Parkway North-Ladue baseball game was kind of like a 4th of July performance. While the North Vikings exploded like a bottle rocket, Ladue mostly fizzled like a cherry bomb with a bad fuse. “We really didn’t get anything going, this just wasn’t our day,” said Ladue’s coach Rob Garrett, trudging off the field after a 6-0 whitewash at the hands of the 16-3 Vikings. Ladue fell to 15-3. Sophomore lefty Joey Reeves went six innings and limited Ladue to just 4 scattered hits. The Vikings have been battled tested this year with two wins over Summit (last year’s state champs, winners over North in the title game); Parkway South, Parkway Central Troy (2 wins), Kirkwood, Hazelwood Central and Burroughs. The Vikings are really busy Coach Fred …
