Reading up on the high school all-star baseball game at Comerica Park last week, Kosmo was happy to see that Auburn Hills Avondale senior A.J. Susick was a part of the game. The K-Man wouldn't have been surprised two years ago when he was on varsity as a sophomore, but he would've have been last year given Susick didn't have the best of junior seasons.
But give Susick major props for bouncing back and having an outstanding senior season, one that saw him make the all-state Dream Team.
He dominated on the mound this year with an ERA under 1 and hit nearly .500 at the plate, so hopefully he lands a nice opportunity for a college program given those numbers and given he's a tall, hard-throwing righty on the mound.
- Another player Kosmo was happy to see in the game was Birmingham Groves senior Jake Balicki, who was the MVP of the East team. Balicki missed half of the season with a calf injury but still showed in his limited time that he was one of the top players in the county. He was a definite all-star and he'll have a great career in college at Michigan
