The college baseball season has begun, and two Highlands residents have already notched dramatic hits.
At DeLand, Florida, on Feb. 16, Matt Forlow, a 2013 Haldane grad, hit a grand slam in the fifth inning of Manhattan College’s opener at Stetson, giving the Jaspers a 5-2 lead. (Stetson came back for a 6-5 win.) Forlow, a second baseman, hit .305 last season; he is playing this year as a graduate student.
On Feb. 17, Patrick Schetter, who graduated from Beacon High School in 2014, singled home the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth for SUNY Cortland in its Feb. 17 opener at Salisbury College in Maryland. The senior infielder, who finished 3-for 5 at the plate, hit .377 for the Red Dragons last season.
