Moments that defined the year (JPC boys) #4 Gladwin blanks and eliminates Clare in districts, Coach Yenkel’s final hurrah
By Clint Kern
GLADWIN - Post 171’s gnarly bomb explosive shortstop and lead-off man, Whittemore-Prescott’s Tyler Janish ripped a double to ignite the Gladwin crowd and the 171 lineup. Freeland’s speed slasher, the gritty Trey Anderson laid down a precise bunt single. Some poor throws allowed the blazing Janish to roll around and score. Then Clare’s hitting machine beast, James Baer smacked a grounder that permitted Anderson to score. Clare’s Cam Smith smashed a double and Pinconning’s stud, Jordan Holbrook had worked his way on via a base on balls, hustled along the base-paths and busted to home-plate, but a perfect relay was executed by Post 443 and Holbrook was tagged out at home to deflate the rowdy Gladwin crowd and allowed Sanford to escape any further damage in the opening inning at Wilmot Field.
