Devereaux paying way for state all-star team HIGH SCHOOLS

June 08, 1993|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,Staff Writer

Orioles center fielder Mike Devereaux did more than help introduce Team Maryland and the Crown All-Stars yesterday at a Camden Yards news conference. He also is putting Team

Maryland on the road.

Devereaux presented a check for $12,000 for a group of Maryland all-stars to travel to a tournament in Stillwater, Okla.

"I know what something like this means to the kids, because I never got to play high school baseball and got my exposure in [American] Legion ball and the NCAA World Series," said Devereaux, who is from Wyoming.

Mount St. Joseph coach Dave Norton introduced the North and South squads for the Crown All-Star Game, to be played July 18 at Camden Yards after the Orioles-Minnesota Twins game. Seven players from high school championship teams, five from the North squad, were among 30 named to the teams.

Maryland Scholastic Association A Conference champion Calvert Hall placed three players on the North squad, pitcher Brian Matz and infielders Larry Marino and Josh Itzoe, and MSA runner-up McDonogh placed pitcher Kenny Cloude.

Cloude was chosen in the sixth round by the Seattle Mariners in last week's amateur draft, and Itzoe was taken on the 40th round by the Orioles.

The North squad also has two members of state Class 3A champion Lansdowne, pitcher Brian Sullivan and outfielder/pitcher Randy Musgrove.

First baseman Buddy Edmond of state private school champion Mount St. Joseph also made the North team, along with Patterson outfielder John Sauer. Sauer was drafted on the 28th round by the Chicago Cubs.

State 4A champion Arundel placed two players among five from Anne Arundel County on the 15-man South squad. First baseman-pitcher Tim Giles, who was selected on the 43rd round by the Orioles, and catcher Mike Cozzone made the club. Giles was named as an outfielder to make room for North Caroline first baseman Jeff Dean.

Eleven of the Crown All-Stars also will play on the 20-member Team Maryland squad, which will play June 23-28 at Oklahoma (( State in the Sun Belt Classic against teams from the host state, California, Texas, Ohio, Georgia and defending champion Florida.
