Madison Heights the baseball epicenter

As loaded as the county usually is with traditional baseball powerhouses, such as Lake Orion, Birmingham Brother Rice, or Orchard Lake St. Mary's, this year the center of the county's baseball scene isn't in any of those communities.
It's in Madison Heights.
Huh? I know, it's hard for Kosmo to believe also, but it's true.
First of all, Madison Heights Lamphere is ranked No. 1 in the state in Division 2. The Rams are legit, too. With a core of six players who have played together since they were 9 and 10 years old, they can definitely win it all.
Another team high in the rankings is Madison Heights Bishop Foley, which is ranked No. 4 in the state in Division 3.
The scary part is that both programs could be good in the future as well. Not only are both loaded with non-seniors on their rosters, but usually have a bunch of players from the South Oakland A's, a prominent summer team in the area.
Rumor has it that there are a horde of talented middle school players within the A's program ready to go to Lamphere or Bishop Foley, so Madison Heights could prove to be the center of baseball within Oakland County for years to come.
- The final day of the Michigan Stars Tournament was rained out on Sunday. It was the first time since 2004 that the final day of what arguably is the best regular season tournament in the state couldn't take place.
