MaxPreps names Head-Royce’s Nico Hoerner small schools player of the year

Stanford-bound Nico Hoerner from Head-Royce has been named Small Schools Baseball Player of the Year by MaxPreps. Hoerner had a .494 career batting average in four years, according to MaxPreps. Earlier this month, MaxPreps named him to the Small Schools All-American Baseball first team.

Hoerner was a first-team selection to the Bay Area News Group’s All-East Bay baseball team as an infielder. This past season, Hoerner batted .517 with six home runs, 30 RBIs and 40 runs scored. He was the BCL-East MVP and helped the Jayhawks reach the NCS Division V championship game.

Two local players made MaxPreps’ medium schools second team: pitcher Zach Stromberg of Acalanes and outfielder Steven Kwan of Washington.

MaxPreps also named three East Bay players to its all-state softball large schools team: pitcher Danielle Williams of Amador Valley, and infielders Briana Perez of Alhambra and Lindsay Rood of Monte Vista.

De La Salle’s Hooper announces he’ll attend UCLA rather than sign pro contract

Highly touted De La Salle High pitcher Justin Hooper announced on just before the Major League Baseball draft that he plans on attending UCLA rather than signing a professional contract.

Hooper, a 6-foot-7 left-hander whose fastball has been clocked at 97 mph, is considered one of the top 25 or so prospects available in the MLB draft that begins Monday morning.

De La Salle reached the North Coast Section Division I championship game Saturday, where the Spartans were beaten 5-2 by College Park.

College Park’s Joe DeMers tosses third no-hitter

College Park High’s baseball team has played three home games this season. Senior Joe DeMers has pitched in all of them. He has yet to allow a single hit in any of them.

College Park's Joe DeMers hasn't allowed a hit in three home games.

College Park’s Joe DeMers hasn’t allowed a hit in three home games.

DeMers’ latest no-hitter, his third of the season, came at the expense of Northgate on Tuesday in Diablo Valley Athletic League action. He struck out five and walked one in the 11-0 win. DeMers was also 4 for 4 with three runs and two RBI. In his past two games, DeMers has gone 7 for 7 at the plate.

DeMers’ hitless streak at home began with a perfect game against Monte Vista in early March. Last Thursday, he didn’t allow a hit against Concord in a 3-0 win.

Against Northgate, DeMers got some help from his defense. In the sixth inning, Northgate’s Ryan Graham hit a liner to the outfield, but College Park right fielder Josh Nelson was able to throw him out at first. Nelson also had a big day at the plate, going 3 for 4 with three runs an RBI and a stolen base.

DeMers is committed to Washington and will likely be an early round pick in the upcoming MLB draft.

Baseball: College Park advances to semifinals of national tournament

The College Park High baseball team has advanced to the semifinals of arguably the most prestigious and competitive tournament in the country, the National High School Baseball Invitational in Cary, N.C.

The Falcons opened the tournament by beating defending state champions on back-to-back days behind strong pitching performances from Joe DeMers and Chris Brown.

A day after DeMers carried the Falcons to a 3-1 win over Farragut-Tennessee, Brown pitched a complete game in a 5-1 victory over Loyalsock Township of Pennsylvania. College Park plays the winner of Whitewater-Georgia and Mosley-Florida in Friday’s semifinals.

Against Farragut on Wednesday, DeMers was sharp on the mound and a big part of the Falcons’ offense, going 1 for 1 with a run, RBI and stolen base. The Washington commit was even better on the mound, allowing an unearned run while striking out six. He gave up three hits and a walk, throwing 104 pitches.

College Park coach Andy Tarpley told Baseball America that DeMers, who threw a perfect game against Monte Vista two weeks ago, can be even better.

“His stuff was, I’ve seen it better, but it was still good enough to win,” Tarpley told Baseball America. “He knows how to compete.”

MLB.com called DeMers one of the day’s top standouts.

Against Loyalsock earlier today, Brown struck out six in his strong outing. After allowing a run in the top of the first, he settled down and his teammates provided the run support. Willie MacIver’s sacrifice fly tied the game in the bottom of the first, and Nick Oar hit a two-run homer in the third. Brown also helped himself with an RBI triple in the second.
