Congratulations to nephew Kevin Bosson, who recently wrapped up his freshman season as a pitcher for the Cal Poly Pomona baseball team. Kevin emerged as one of the top starters for the Broncos, and led the team with four victories, 59 1/3 innings pitched and 46 strikeouts. He posted a 4-5 record with a 4.55 earned run average in 11 starts.
Unfortunately, the Cal Poly folks didn’t seem to go to bat for Kevin when it came to post-season honors. He was surprisingly passed over as the California Collegiate Athletic Association’s Freshman of the Year, which went to Cal State San Bernardino’s Aaron Brooks. Kevin put up better numbers in every significant statistical category (Brooks had a 2-3 record, 4.70 ERA, 48 strikeouts in nine starts and 53 innings).
Maybe this one should have gone as a no-decision.
