Pitcher Cole Gacke and outfielder Rorey Combs headline Kansas City Kansas Community College’s post-season baseball honors.

Both Gacke and Combs were named to the East All-Jayhawk Conference second team. In addition, outfielder Josh Shumacher, first baseman Brandon Still and shortstop Kevin Santiago earned honorable mention. All are sophomores with the exception of Santiago.

The selections were made by a vote of conference coaches, who could not vote on their own players. KCKCC (17-19) finished in a tie for sixth and seventh in the Jayhawk East although the Blue Devils were only two games back of third place Neosho County and Johnson County, both 19-17. No Blue Devil was selected to the All-Region VI team.

A righthander from Liberty North, Gacke compiled a 10-2 record which tied him for second in pitching victories in the Jayhawk. Gacke made 14 starts and completed eight including a pair of shutouts, all team highs. He also led the Blue Devils in innings pitched with 83 2/3 and had an outstanding strike out to walk ratio, fanning 70 while walking 24. He had a 5.06 earned run average.

A lefthanded hitter from Truman High School in Independence, Combs finished second in runs-batted-in with 51 and third in home runs with seven while hitting .340 in 59 games. The team leader in slugging percentage at .613, Combs was also second in extra base hits (28) and stolen bases (16).

Schumacher, an outfielder from Aurora, Coloradp, led the Blue Devils in batting average (.387), hits (82), runs (74) and stolen bases (18) while driving in 34 runs and slugging .575 from the leadoff spot in the batting order. A two-year starter, Schumacher was flawless defensively, handling 68 chances without an error.

Still, who saw limited action as a freshman, was the Blue Devils most improved player. A first baseman from Springdale, Arkansas, he was third in hitting (.342) and RBI (46). He was also fourth in extra base hits (25) and fifth in slugging percentage (.532).

Santiago led the Blue Devils in RBI (63), slugging (.713), home runs (11) and extras base hits (35) while hitting .386. A freshman from Jayua, Puerto Rico, he was also second in hits (78) and runs scored (54).

Cowley College, which won the Jayhawk East with a 32-4 but was beaten in the finals of the Region VI championship by West Division winner Barton County, dominated the All-Jayhawk team with seven players on the 14-member first team including five freshmen.

Outfielder Alex Peterson was named Co-MVP and Freshman of the Year while another frosh, Andrew Roach, was named Pitcher of the Year. Peterson led the East in hitting (.447) and the region in RBI (88) while stealing 23 bases. Roach was 6-1 with a 3.88 earned run average.

Fort Scott’s Andrew Morrow shared MVP honors with Peterson after hitting .424 with 17 home runs, both second in the division.

In Independence’s final season of baseball, Beau Schultz was named the East Coach of the Year after guiding the Pirates to a sixth place tie and a return to the playoffs. Independence has announced it no longer will be offering baseball on a competitive basis.

Carl Brewer, a Democratic candidate for governor, today named Chris Morrow as his lieutenant governor running mate.

Brewer, a former mayor of Wichita, made the announcement in an eight-stop tour throughout Kansas, including Breit’s Stein and Deli, 412 N. 5th St., Kansas City, Kansas.

He filed this morning in Topeka and also made the announcement of his running mate, a former mayor of Gardner, Kansas, in front of the Brown vs. Board of Education mural in the Capitol at Topeka. It signifies the progress that has been made, he said.

“It also signifies how much farther we have to go, that we have not been. That’s part of what’s driving me, is the progress that we have not been,” Brewer said this morning during a campaign speech at Breit’s.

There are several candidates running for governor in the primary, which will be Aug. 7.

Brewer said he never thought in his lifetime that one day Kansas would be discussing whether it should be funding taking care of children or those who can’t take care of themselves.

Brewer said he wants to make sure everyone has a place at the table.

“The state of Kansas is broken now and all of us are seeing it now,” Brewer said.

“You need to get involved or bring about change,” he said. “I chose to bring about change.” That requires everyone to join in a partnership, he added.

Brewer said the state needs to address its financial position, education and health care issues.

“A lot of times in Topeka, they don’t understand how their decisions are affecting our families, our lives, every day,” Brewer said. “We understand.”

Brewer has been working since age 16. He served in the Kansas Army National Guard, and was a captain and company commander. He was a sheet metal worker in the aircraft industry, where he worked for 32 years, later becoming a union steward, then moved into management at Spirit Aviation.

“We have to make sure our next governor knows how to work both aisles and how to work with all people,” said LaVonta Williams, a former Wichita city council member who introduced Brewer. Brewer led Wichita through the recent recession, she said.

Starting the day out in front of the Brown vs. Board mural today was a reminder that they still have to be moving the state forward in an equitable manner for everybody, Morrow said.

Morrow, who grew up in Roeland Park, about three blocks from Kansas City, Kansas, said there is no one in Kansas more qualified to be governor than Brewer. Morrow mentioned Brewer’s experience in being mayor of Wichita, the largest city in the state, and experience in building consensus and working for the betterment of their communities.

“Carl didn’t pick me to fill some hole on the ticket, but because we are consistently on the same page on the issues,” he said.

“There’s so much that we’re going to need to do to get Kansas back on track,” Morrow said. “I look forward to continuing this ride through to November and beyond.”

“We can change the way the rest of the world sees the state of Kansas,” Brewer said.

Brewer also asked volunteers to work on voter registration and getting voters to the polls.
