Iowa State Reinstates Jordan Railey


July 15th, 2011 by Jim Field

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State has reinstated suspended center Jordan Railey, though he will not be allowed to play in the first three games next season.  Railey was suspended following his arrest in April for fighting in public. Cyclones spokesman Mike Green says Railey’s disorderly conduct charge has been dropped.  Green said Railey, who averaged 2.0 points and 1.5 rebounds as a freshman last year, will be allowed to practice with the team and go on its trip to Italy next month. He will not play during the exhibition season and the first three regular season games.  Railey and forward Melvin Ejim, also a sophomore, are the only returning frontcourt players who played for Iowa State last season.

The Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund Committee has announced plans for the 3rd Annual T-Fred Memorial Golf Tournament to be held Saturday, August 13th, at the Nishna Hills Golf Course. Frederickson, the son of Darrin and Melanie Petty of Atlantic and Gary and Kari Frederickson of Council Bluffs, lost his life in a 2009 residential fire in Council Bluffs. 

In his honor, a four person best ball tournament will begin at 9 a.m. Prizes will be awarded in three flights and on every hole, including the opportunity to win a brand new car on Deter Motor Company’s hole in one! A silent auction, t-shirt sales, and free will donation meal will be held all day in the club house with the public invited to attend. The meal will consist of a hot dog or hamburger, chips, and homemade cookie or bar. 

Proceeds from the event have funded three annual scholarships and donations to a variety of recipients including the Atlantic Food Pantry, AHS Athletics Department, school and public libraries, Friends of Lake Anita’s fishing clinic, Kiwanis Club’s bicycle helmet program, Cass County Fair, Atlantic Parks and Recreation, Nishna Valley Family YMCA’s Partnership With Youth program, Atlantic Nursing and Rehab’s Easter egg hunt, Atlantic Little League’s Trevor Frederickson Baseball/Softball Clinics, and The Compassionate Friends.

To date, over $15,500 has been disbursed to various groups and organizations. For information about sponsoring a hole or donating to the silent auction, contact Melanie Petty at 712-249-3696 or mail to

Cardinals and Garcia Strike a Four Year Deal


July 13th, 2011 by Jim Field

ST. LOUIS, MO July 13, 2011 – St. Louis Cardinals Sr. Vice President &
General Manager John Mozeliak announced today that the Cardinals have
agreed to terms with pitcher Jaime Garcia on a four year contract with
two club options.  The Cardinals made the announcement this afternoon at
a press conference at Busch Stadium.

“Jaime is one the best young arms in baseball today,” said Mozeliak.
“We are excited to have him as part of the core of our pitching staff
for years to come.”

Garcia, 25, is 9-3 with a 3.23 ERA during the first half of this season,
which comes on the heels of one of the best rookie campaigns in 2010
where he was 13 – 8 with a 2.70 ERA (4th N.L.), ranking not only among
top rookie pitchers, but also the top Major League pitchers in several

Garcia’s career mark is 23 – 12, with a 3.06 ERA in 57 games, with 240
career strike outs.  In 2010, Garcia’s 2.70 ERA was the lowest by a
Cardinals’ left handed starter since John Tudor recorded a 2.40 ERA in
22 starts (25 games) during 1990.

Garcia was named both Rookie of the Year and Comeback Player of the Year
for 2010 by the St. Louis Chapter of the Baseball Writers of America

Garcia was selected by Baltimore in the 20th round (899th overall) of
the 2004 draft, but did not sign.  The 6-2, 215-pounder was born in
Reynosa, Mexico and currently makes his home in Mission, Texas, where he
attended Sharyland High School.
