Former Chipola Indian Leads Mlb in Home Runs
By Joc Calloway
www.chipolaathletics.com

In front of the largest crown in Toronto since opening day of the season, 30,089 fans watched as former Chipola Indian, Jose Bautista hit two towering home runs to help the Toronto Blue Jays defeat the New Yankees 6-1 on Friday night. 

The loss snapped a five-game winning streak by the Yankees and the two homers increased Bautista’s major league-leading total to 18. 

“This is uncharted water for me, but it feels good,” said Bautista, who had a previous career high of 16 home runs in a single season. 

The former Chipola great led off the second inning with a home run ball that went off the facing of the third deck in left field.  Later in the fourth inning, Bautista found almost the same area for a two-run shot.  Bautista would finish the night with a leadoff double in the eighth to go 3 for 3 with 3 RBIs on the night. 

Bautista was a member on Chipola Baseball squad before being drafted by the Pittsburg Pirates in the 20th round of the 2000 amateur draft.  His official signing came in May 2001, the same year the Indians captured the Panhandle Conference Championship and was the NJCAA Region VIII Runner-up.

JACKSON BLUE SPRINGS BASIN POSTERS AVAILABLE

           

            MARIANNA—In June, a poster idea initiated by the Jackson Blue Springs Working group, was unveiled. 

            The informational poster was created with help from the Northwest Florida Water Management district, with photographs by Patrick Casey, text and design by Faith Eidse, and map by Kevin Defosset. 

            Chipola’s Dr. Santine Cuccio, says, “The purpose of the poster is to educate the community; and define and preserve the Blue Spring Basin.  It will appear in offices, libraries, lobbies, schools, and other public places.  The poster will be placed in approximately 100 public places.” 

            Lois Jones, a volunteer with the Florida Caverns State Park, recently used the poster to promote an outdoor worship service at Blue Springs for St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.

            The posters will be displayed at local businesses, local historical society, government offices, in a subdivision with septic tanks, and in school classrooms. 

            Dr. Cuccio said, “The message of each poster will bear fruit as people match their care of the land with love of the waters from Jackson Blue Spring.” Chipola professor Alan Tidwell directs the Blue Springs Working Group.

            Posters can be obtained from:  Northwest Florida Water Management District

81 Water Management Drive, Havana Florida, 32333, or by phoning:  850-539-5999.

CHIPOLA PLAYERS SELECTED IN MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL DRAFT

 

            MARIANNA—With the success that Chipola College baseball program has achieved in the past decade, it is not unusual for several current and former Indians to hear their names called during the yearly MLB Draft. 

            In the second day of the draft on June 8, five current Chipola players and two former players were drafted by major league teams. 

            Current Chipola player LaVon Washington was drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the second round with the 55th overall selection.  The 5’11 centerfielder was drafted in the first-round by the Tampa Bay Rays a year ago, but opted to attend Chipola.  Playing in 41 games, Washington batted .327 with 8 homeruns and 25 RBIs.

            Pitcher C.J. Riefenhauser, a native of Mahopac, NY, was selected in the twentieth round by the Tampa Bay Rays. Riefenhauser took the mound for Chipola in 18 games with an ERA of 4.93.    

            Other Indians, Austin Wright, Rodney Quintero, and Joey Rapp also were selected on the second day of the draft.  The Boston Red Sox picked Wright in the 23rd round. The seven game winner for Chipola had an ERA of 3.90. 

            Quintero, a right-handed pitcher who had an ERA of 4.46 in 17 appearances, was taken in the 25th round by Houston. Rapp, who hit 10 homeruns on the season with 28 RBIs, was selected by the Washington Nationals as the first pick of round 28. 

Former Indians David Buchanan and Adam Duvall also heard their names called on the second day of the draft.  Buchanan, a 6’3 right-handed junior at Georgia State University, was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the seventh round.  Last year, Buchanan was drafted in the sixth round by the New York Mets.  Duvall was selected in the eleventh round by the San Francisco Giants after being named to the 2010 Preseason All-Big East First Team in his senior season at Louisville.
