Craig hits 2 homers, Cardinals rip Rockies 9-3

July 3rd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Allen Craig hit a pair home runs, Carlos Beltran extended his RBI streak to a major league high nine games and Kyle Lohse worked into the eighth inning of the St. Louis Cardinals’ 9-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Monday night. Matt Holliday had a homer and sacrifice fly and Jon Jay doubled and walked twice with a steal for the Cardinals, who punished a pitching staff that entered the game with a major league-worst 5.37 ERA. Tyler Colvin and Wilin Rosario homered for the Rockies, who have dropped five of seven. Rosario homered for the third straight game, but Colorado pitchers totaled four wild pitches, eight walks and an error that allowed a run. Beltran, an NL All-Star game starter picked to participate in the home run derby, leads the league with 63 RBIs. He has 15 RBIs during the streak.

Berkman expects to be back soon after break

Sports

July 2nd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Lance Berkman expects to be back in the St. Louis Cardinals’ lineup soon after the All-Star break. Maybe even the first day back. The first baseman has been sidelined since undergoing left knee surgery in late May that turned out to be relatively minor. Berkman said Monday that swelling was minimal after the procedure and he began running a week ago, and said his rehab was right on schedule. The switch-hitting Berkman took 25 swings of soft toss from each side several hours before Monday’s game against the Colorado Rockies. He’ll have to get into baseball shape before taking a rehab assignment and manager Mike Matheny said Berkman hasn’t done much side to side movement yet. The Cardinals’ first game after the break is July 13 at Cincinnati. Berkman joked that Allen Craig has done so well starting at first base that he may come back as a pinch hitter.

NFL & IA NAT’L. GUARD TO HOST HIGH SCHOOL PLAYER DEVELOPMENT FOOTBALL CAMP

Sports

July 2nd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa National Guard, in conjunction with the National Football League, is hosting a High School Player Development (HSPD) Football camp at Camp Dodge, Johnston, Iowa July 20 – 21. The camp is completely free to all Iowa high school football players (grades 9-12). Lodging and food will be provided. Enrollment is limited to the first 150 applicants, first-come, first-served.  The two-day seminar, staffed by high school coaches and members of the Iowa Barnstormers, will be conducted on Friday, July 20 from 1:30 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, July 21 from 8:45 a.m. to 3 p.m.

According to the NFL, the High School Player Development program addresses challenges facing high school football programs across the country focusing primarily on underserved communities. HSPD serves as a free resource for both high school players and coaches. The program emphasizes safety and concussion awareness, character development and life skills, and football fundamentals.

The HSPD is also dedicated to character development. It is the NFL’s mission to provide HSPD participants a program that focuses on inspiring excellence in the classroom, community, and on the playing field. The HSPD Site Manager, with the help of his coaches and the National Guard, will discuss at least five character development topics in addition to the topics covered at every camp (Center for Disease Control Player Safety and Concussion Awareness, NCAA Initial Eligibility Requirements, Time Management, Social Media and Bullying).

To register for the camp, or for more information on this program, contact Greg Schoon at 515-240-7847 or by email at greg.schoon@dmschools.org . You can also find more information at http://www.nationalguard.com/events/high-school-player-development .
