Brookhaven is poised to join Atlanta's college baseball scene - the summer league scene, that is.

Thursday, May 19, 2011
From Staff Reports Marist starting pitchers Blake Stevens and Brandon Liebrandt posted back-to-back stellar outings on the mound to lead the defending state champion War Eagles (29-3) to a sweep over Greenbrier (21-10) in the quarterfinals of the Class AAAA baseball playoffs Tuesday.

Center fielder Brendan Pilger ends his college career as the program's leader in home run, stolen bases and doubles.
When Oglethorpe’s centerfielder Brendan Pilger hit his first home run as a high school player, the sophomore got a valuable lesson that he would carry with him into his record-setting college baseball career at the Brookhaven university. A check-swing hit barely cleared a short fence and Pilger’s coach stopped him as he rounded third base with a message: “Get your money’s worth.” Later the coach would explain why he shared the advice with the young Pilger even after a homerun result. The coach at Atlanta’s St. Pius X Catholic High School reminded the player that he has one swing to make contact and put the ball in play, so don’t cheat yourself. “You don’t want to give half effort because after that half effort you might not get the outcome…

After first loss in region play, Chamblee High School's baseball team next faces Lakeside
Starting pitching proved to be Chamblee's undoing on the diamond as the Bulldogs gave up four runs in the first inning en route to a 10-3 loss at Region 6-AAAA rival Dunwoody, Wednesday. This lastest defeat drops Chamblee to 6-7 overall and 3-1 in league play. “I give Dunwoody a lot of credit,” said Bulldogs coach Brian Ely. “They hit the ball hard in the first inning and put us in a hole. We tried to climb back in the game but just didn’t have enough tonight.” The Wildcats' four-run first inning came on three hits, including an RBI double by Stelen Stulberger and a well-executed sacrifice bunt by Zach Tonner. Chamblee’s starting pitcher Stephen Gaulden settled down in the second inning, and the Bulldogs cut the deficit to 5-2 after three…
