2010 Season


Notes On The 2010 Season

  • Brandon Quay recorded the defensive play of the year in the very first inning at Central this year when he sprinted from his right field position to catch a foul ball as he caromed into a chain link fence.  Brandon Grau’s diving catch at Huntingdon ranked second.
  • This year’s squad collected nine total triples as compared to last year’s eleven.  However, last year’s total was amassed over 26 games as compared to this season’s eighteen.  This was more triples per game than any other group in the last two decades.
  • Jordan Schainholz finished this year with a .436 average–his two year cumulative average was a robust .394.  This outstanding senior slugger also belted seven homers and collected a total of 43 RBI during his career.
  • Brandon Grau recorded the only bunt for a base hit in 2010.
  • One oddity this year was that the Raiders began three different games that had to be postponed and resumed on another day because of inclement weather–all three of these games were losses.
  • Nine different Red Raiders took the mound this season.
  • Senior Jordan Schainholz along with juniors Eric Regel, Robert Gummo and Matt Watson were selected as MAC All-Stars for their outstanding play this year.
  • Zach Moerschbacher had the only outfield assist in 2010 when he gunned down a Central Mountain runner at the plate on April 30th.
  • Robert Gummo recorded his fourteenth career pitching victory over Huntingdon on April 27th.
  • The Raiders lost three different games this year by scores of 17-9–two of them were to B.E.A.
  • The red and white had two wins against the eventual AAA District 6 runner-up Huntingdon Bearcats.
  • This year’s squad lost three games via the 10-run rule, but also won two versus Tyrone and Penns Valley (the P.V. victory was a three inning 15-run rule).
  • Raiders Matt Watson (.468) and Jordan Schainholz (.436) joined the coveted .400 Batting Average Club in 2010.  Eric Regel also hit .408 to garner his second appearance on the list.
  • The 2010 Red Raider pitching staff recorded a collective ERA of 8.35 which, it is believed, is the highest in Bellefonte High School baseball history.
  • The Raiders have only had one 10-plus strikeout performance in a complete game victory in the last four years. Seth Tressler fanned 11 versus Donegal in a first round State AAA playoff game last year.
  • Seniors T. J. Allen, Levi Knoffsinger and Jordan Schainholz will certainly be missed next season.  The trio marks the smallest number of seniors to be lost through graduation in recent memory.  The Raiders will return ten letter winners in 2011 off of this year’s squad, including three time lettermen Robert Gummo and Brandon Quay and two time letter winners Matt Watson and Eric Regel.  Although this year’s team took their lumps, a lot of experience was earned by the ten returnees that should bode well for the Red Raiders in their optimistic quest for success in 2011.
