Missouri Notes 1998



Junior pitcher Justin Stine took full advantage of his opportunity to pitch in one of the most prestigious summer leagues in the country, the Cape Cod League. Stine, pitching for the Wareham Gatemen, went 3-2 with a 1.69 ERA in 16 games. In 50.1 innings of work, he allowed just 10 earned runs on 35 hits. He walked 14 while striking out 27. Opponents hit just .203 against Stine.

Even more impressive were Stine's numbers in the postseason. During Wareham Cape Cod League title run, Stine went 2-0 in three appearances. He did not allow a run and gave up four hits in seven innings of work. He walked three while striking out 10. His performance earned Stine the runner up for playoff Most Valuable Player.


Several Missouri newcomers stood out in their respective summer leagues. Jon Williams had an unbelievable summer in the SLABA League in St. Louis where he won the Triple Crown by leading the league in hitting, home runs and RBI.

Mitch Kiler participated in the Ban Johnson wood bat league over the summer. While facing collegiate pitching for the first time in his career., Kiler proceeded to finish the summer in the top 10 in the league in hitting.

Future Missouri pitcher/outfielder J.R. Warner put together the best pitching performance of his career over the summer by tossing a no-hitter in the SLABA League.

Both Ralph McCasland and Matt Bremehr were parts of legion teams that advanced to the Missouri state championships.

Jason Williams led his American Legion team to a fifth place finish at the 1997 American Legion World Series in Rapid City, South Dakota.
