Baseball: Ohio's Ryan Berry wins HR Derby...
By Robert Przybylo
Fun atmosphere out there at OU’s Mitchell Park for the Opening Ceremonies of the inaugural Heartland Classic. Free food didn’t hurt, either. Kids were definitely appreciative of all the goodies.
Was on hand for the Home Run Derby. There were 16 competitors, two from each team. One round, 10 outs, winner take all. And your winner was…Ohio’s Ryan Berry. Berry, who has signed with Dayton (20 minutes from where I’m from in Ohio), hit five to easily win the title.
Berry was the third batter up and got into a real comfortable rhythm and was hitting lazer shots out to left field. Ohio also took the team title with a combined six home runs.
Tulsa Union stud Wade Ambrose hit one out for Oklahoma while Deer Creek’s Cale Coshow, who will be playing at Mitchell Park next year, wasn’t able to get any out.
1. Ohio 6 (5, 1)
2. (tie) Texas 5 (2, 3); Georgia (2, 3)
4. Arizona 4 (1, 3)
5. Arkansas 3 (1,2)
6. (tie) Oklahoma 1 (1,0); Maryland 1 (1,0)
8. Canada 0
Look for a video with Berry on NewsOK on Tuesday. He was pretty open about how the heat is something dem Ohio kids are not used to. It gets to be 95 in Ohio often but not like the 95 degrees in Oklahoma.
Back out at the Heartland Classic on Tuesday.
