The Wildcats storm back from early deficit to knock off St. Dominic, a team that had won 10 straight games before Friday's tournament matchup in O'Fallon.
O'FALLON -- The early part of Friday's Ft. Zumwalt North Invitational Tournament (FZN Tourney) opening game at Westhoff Park, began as many others had for tourney favorite and No. 3 ranked area small school baseball team, St. Dominic High. The Crusaders turned a walk, a stolen base, and two basehits into a 2-0 lead in the second inning, and were getting dominant pitching from ace starter Jacob Wehde. But then a funny thing happened on the way to another St. Dom easy win. The opponent on the field, the Hazelwood West Wildcats, remembered they are Hazelwood West and they don't give up so easily. And boy did the Wildcats remember in a big way, scoring five runs in the fifth inning, and six more in the seventh, to completely blow away the …

The Pirates survive marathon ballgame against the Wildcats in an early-season Suburban North Conference showdown, thanks to senior Matt Wilkes' ninth-inning, game-winning double.
Just about every time one of the teams from Pattonville High School squares off against one of the teams from Hazelwood West High School, no matter what the sport, there's a pretty good chance the result is going to be some kind of dynamite athletic competition, that won't be decided until the game's final moments. Automatic Rivalry That's what happened when the Pirates and Wildcats met in boys and girls basketball, football, soccer, and swimming this year. So it should be no surprise that on Thursday afternoon, at West's Beckemeier Baseball Field, the teams waged another fantastic battle in their longtime athletic rivalry. And this time, it was the Pirates who came out on top, claiming a nine-inning, 5-4 victory over the Wildcats, in a …

Hazelwood West senior-to-be Oday Al-Yatim has seven hits in his past three games for American National.
ST. LOUIS—After a brutal beginning to their summer baseball schedule that included 13 games in eight days, the American National Eagles of the St. Louis Amateur Baseball Association (SLABA) were hoping that coach Bill Becher would give them the day off on Sunday and Monday. And Becher planned to do just that, but he told the team of 18-and under all-stars from high schools all over North St. Louis County, that if they wanted those two days off, they had to earn them. “I told the guys if they played hard these last two games, then I’d give them both those days off,” Becher said. “We’re all tired from all these games. I need the days off, too. But we still need to play hard. And they definitely did. I’m not unhappy at all.” Nor should he be…
