Poquoson in the news...
 
     Crockett succeeds in his role as a relief specialist for the Cleveland Indians
Kyle Crockett’s first call-up to the Cleveland Indians on May 16 had that once-in-a-lifetime feeling of joy repeated dozens of times a season at minor-league baseball parks, but which never gets old.

As he prepared to step onto the bus for a trip to Erie, Pa., with his teammates on the Class Double-A Akron RubberDucks, his manager, Dave Wallace, called Crockett into his office and told him he was “going up.”

Crockett thought for a moment he was headed to Triple-A Columbus before Wallace said, “You’re going to be a major-league pitcher.”

Crockett immediately started crying — almost all of them do — then called his dad, Gary, and mom, Diane, and they cried too. He walked back onto the bus to pick up a bag and was greeted by screaming, cheering teammates who had already heard the news.

“Everyone was congratulating me,” Crockett said. “It was pretty awesome.”

And it has been virtually the entire time since. Crockett, 22, pitched in three games for the Indians in the six days after he was called up, then landed in Columbus for about three weeks before getting a second call to the majors June 13.

     Poquoson pulls out 12-9 win in overtime against York
It seems there’s no amount of adversity the football team at Poquoson High can’t overcome. The Islanders entered their Bay Rivers District game against York on Friday minus promising quarterback Cole Jackson, lost for the season with a knee injury sustained the week before.

Trevor Dunagan was serving as a perfectly capable replacement before a blow to the head while making a tackle sidelined him late in the third quarter. If all that weren’t enough, the Islanders were challenged to stop York running back Chris Spruill twice at the 1-yard line in overtime or go down to defeat.

The Islanders rose to that challenge, with Ethan Bryce and a host of teammates holding Spruill to consecutive no-gains to clinch a 12-9 victory at Poquoson Middle School. Chris Coccimiglio nailed a 31-yard field goal to start the OT and give the Islanders the lead.

     Indians report: rookie reliever Kyle Crockett doesn’t look like he belongs — until he steps on the mound
After most Indians games, many of Kyle Crockett’s teammates are still getting dressed or talking with reporters when the unassuming rookie slips his backpack straps across his shoulders and, with his hands in his jeans pockets, quietly heads out the door for the evening.

Looking more like a college freshman headed to class than a professional baseball player, the 6-foot-2, 170-pounder tends to go unnoticed most nights. He perfectly plays the role of a rookie who is seen when summoned from the bullpen, but heard very little elsewhere.

“He’s a good rookie,” Indians manager Terry Francona said before the Indians’ scheduled off day Thursday as the team prepares to wrap up the regular season by hosting the Tampa Bay Rays for a three-game series beginning Friday. “He’s polite, respectful and he competes. And he’s good.”

“His feel for the game is very good — he commands the baseball, he throws strikes and he has deception,” Francona said. “He kind of jumps at the hitters, so he has a little extra on his fastball. And when we’ve been in situations where we need strikes, we haven’t been afraid to go to him — and that’s a big compliment to a young kid.”
