APR 27 2016 – Tyler Prewitt Night
Saguaro 7 – Greenway 11
WP: Kenyon (6-1)
S: Stockdale (4)
It was a special night at Greenway High School, as hundreds of members of the Demon Baseball Family from over the years gathered for a special ceremony to honor fallen former Demon Baseball Player Tyler Prewitt.
The Demons wore their “TP” Cammo Jerseys for the pregame ceremony as a symbol of appreciation for Tyler.
The Greenway baseball program invited the Prewitt Family onto the field for the ceremony, where the team presented Mrs. Prewitt with a framed #11 Jersey in honor of Tyler. Greenway Baseball Announcer Erik Johnson shared the story of Sgt. Prewitt’s decision to join the army, and how he lost his life in Iraq in 2004. Former Greenway Head Coach Ryan Holtorf addressed the crowd on behalf of the program, and shared the joys of what it was like to Coach the former Greenway infielder.
Dozens of members of the Greenway ROTC lined the field in Uniform, and helped with the presentation of colors and the National Anthem.
Many other Greenway Baseball Alumni and ALL Former Greenway Coaches gathered around home plate for the National Anthem and a moment of silence.
The first pitch was thrown out by a young Tyler Prewitt – the nephew of the former ball player, who is named after his late Uncle.
After the ceremony was over, and without a dry eye in the house, a game was played.
Senior Matt McDonald stepped up to the plate as the leadoff man for Greenway. McDonald wore a special Camouflage painted helmet, with the initials “TP” painted on the back, which had never been worn before. In true storybook fashion, McDonald hit the first pitch of the game out of the ballpark – it was his first career Home Run in 4 years at Greenway. The “TP” helmet was hung back in the Greenway clubhouse, never to be worn again.
On the night when Prewitt’s #11 jersey was remembered, the Demons would put up exactly 11 runs in route to victory.
As we wind down the season, our time with Greenway Baseball… this was the single most moving experience of my coaching career. Thank you to everyone at Greenway High School who made this night possible.
Greenway finishes the Season with a record of 18-9, and awaits their seeding for the playoffs.

Mountain Ridge 3 – Greenway 5
WP: Kenyon (5-1)
S: Mackey (1)
The Greenway Demons Baseball Club ended their three-game skid with a big win over Mountain Ridge High School on Monday night at home.
Senior Right Fielder Jacob Stockdale delivered a 2nd Inning RBI Triple, scoring Justin Freeman to give his club the early lead. Stock would score on a one-out RBI infield Single by Cowboy Jesus Macias to stake his club an early 2-0 lead.
Senior Right Hander Jared Kenyon was nails on the mound for the Demons in this contest. Kenyon retired the first 6 hitters he faced, before a triple and a throwing error in the 3rd allowed Mountain Ridge to cut the two-run margin in half. Kenyon labored a little through the 4th, allowing a game tying Home Run and 2 more baserunner before getting a big Inning Ending Strikeout to keep the game tied at that point. Kenyon would then bear down to retire 7 of the next 9 hitters he faced, before exiting in the 7th Inning with a lead, and turning the ball over to Bryce Mackey to shut the door. As the book closed on Kenyon, he finished the game with 6+ IP, 2 ER on 5 Hits and 5 K’s, and his team leading 5th Victory of the season.
After not figuring into the pre-season starting pitching rotation… Kenyon has pitched himself to the top of the Greenway team leaderboard in many major pitching categories, including Inning Pitched, Wins, ERA & Whip, as he continues to compete at a high level every time that he is given the ball.
The 2-2 tie was broken in Bottom of the 5th, when Left Fielder James Gamble beat out an infield single to start the frame. After a Sac Bunt was thrown away putting runners in scoring position, Senior Matt McDonald drove in the go ahead run from 3rd Base with a Sac Fly to Right Field. Two more defensive miscues in the infield by the Mountain Lions would result in 2 crucial Insurance Runs for the Demons, as they would ultimately go on to win the game 5-3.
Greenway hopes to stay on the winning track as they travel to Cactus Shadows on Wednesday evening at 7pm.
