Three from Glenwood, two from Rifle make 4A baseball first team

Patrick Hailey, Garrett Hatch and Mario Gonzalez were big helpers in leading Glenwood Springs’ baseball team to an 11-9 record and the program’s first postseason appearance since 2006.

Their efforts didn’t go unnoticed.

All three landed selections on the All-4A Western Slope League first team.

Hailey, who pitched and played first base, was the team’s leader in RBIs, batting average and ERA.

Hatch, a catcher, and Gonzalez, a third baseman, each hit better than .400. Hatch led the Demons in home runs.

Joining them on the first team were Rifle shortstop/pitcher Dwight Cerise and catcher Tanner Wilcox. Cerise hit .507 and led the Bears in runs (36), while Wilcox hit at a .339 clip and scored 30 runs.

Glenwood outfielder/pitcher Matt Snyder made the all-league team as an honorable mention.

Weather cancelled Tuesday’s 4A Western Slope League All-Star Game, which would have been held in Rifle. Afternoon showers left the field at Deerfield Park in bad shape. The game will most likely not be rescheduled.

The game would have pitted all-league players against one another.
