Strasiser's monster season

Tony Strasiser was also a football standout for North Star.
North Star senior Tony Strasiser is putting together the type of baseball season that doesn't seem possible, even for diehard video gamers.

Heading into Wednesday's District 5 Class A quarterfinal against Conemaugh Township, Strasiser was batting .632 with a .720 on-base percentage. He had 36 hits and the same number of RBI, a ridiculous stat no matter the level of play. Strasiser had scored 40 runs, hit five home runs, four triples and seven doubles.

Walks and singles generally turn into doubles as Strasiser has 25 stolen bases.

The scary thing is Strasiser has been nearly effective on the mound, which has given undefeated North Star a dynamic 1-2-3 pitching punch with Brantley Rice and Shane Supanick, who picked up an impressive 2-0 win over Conemaugh Township as North Star (19-0) advanced to the D5 semifinals where they play McConnellsburg.

Strasiser is 5-0 in five pitching appearances with 40 strikeouts in 20 innings pitched. He's allowed six hits with a 1.05 ERA.
