No one is going to accuse the Temple Owls (19-34, 7-17 in conference) of being a baseball powerhouse, but you have to ‘start’ somewhere, so why not the pitching. Junior Matt Hockenberry (2012 – 5-4, 6.07, 75.2-IP, 51-K, 30-BB), were sent out to play summer ball with three other Owls, all sophomores, brothers Eric and Patrick Peterson and Adam Dian. ‘Hock’ pitched for the Geneva Red Wings of the New York Collegiate Baseball League (NYCBL) and was named the 11th overall best prospect in the league. Big time summer stat line: 4-0, 2.84, 30-K, 38-IP. Any Temple success this fall starts with Hockenberry every Friday night.
The battle between the CIF Southern Section and sports kingpin Mater Dei H.S. (CA.) has now entered its third year of litigation. Attorney fees are now estimated at exceeding $109,000. This all started with a lawsuit filed by the Roman Catholic Bishop of Orange County against former CIF Commissioner Jim Staunton for alleged bias towards its student athletes. Current and former Mater Dei stars include Ty Moore, Cory Hahn, Mike Hessman, Tony Pena, and Bob Meachem.
