Humphrey signs with Kankakee CC

Lewis Cass senior Jaret Humphrey has signed to play baseball at Kankakee Community College in Illinois.

“I’m just thinking I can go there, get better and hopefully move up to a higher level,” Humphrey said. “Last year they won the JUCO World Series, so they’re pretty good.”

Humphrey, a first baseman, is hitting .362 with four home runs and 21 RBIs this season for a Kings squad that is 15-3. His OPS is 1.100 and fielding percentage is .978.

He said he is getting full tuition paid to go to KCC.

“Jaret is all about baseball,” Cass coach Greg Marschand said. “He’s a great fit to go there for two years and then will have an opportunity for bigger and better things. He won’t have to sit like he’d have to do at a bigger school as a freshman. It’ll be a great fit for him and I’m glad it’ll be close enough for me to watch him play from time to time.”

Bixler continues to rake for Franklin

FRANKLIN – The top-seeded Franklin College baseball team had the opportunity to clinch a spot in the finals of the 2018 Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) on Friday afternoon with a win over third-seeded Rose-Hulman in the tournament’s winner’s bracket.

The Grizzlies (37-3) and Engineers (20-22) traded leads, ties and momentum shifts all afternoon. Down by a pair of runs in the seventh inning, the host institution rallied for 11 runs over the final three innings to earn a 13-9 win and advance to the championship-clinching game this afternoon at John P. McDowell Field.

Ryan Bixler finished with three hits and launched a solo shot to start a six-run, seventh-inning rally. The Lewis Cass product has now clubbed 14 home runs for the season.

Franklin will play with the conference championship on the line on Saturday afternoon at McDowell Field. The Grizzlies will face the winner of Saturday morning’s elimination game between Rose-Hulman and Anderson. The championship game is set to begin at approximately 12:30 p.m.
