Vice President Clark Huskey recently had his jersey #41 retired for his outstanding efforts as a coach and Board of Director of the Columbus Cobras for over 25 years.
Clark has lead his teams to three National titles and has been instrumental in helping many young athletes advance to the college and professional levels. His knowledge of the game put him atop of his peers.
We congratulate Clark for his long time efforts with the Columbus Cobras Baseball Association.
Clark has since retired from coaching but has organized the Cobras college age group in it's first season this summer. This team bring back former Cobras that are currently playing in college and want to stay sharp in the summer. Clark also has taken up umpiring and in his first year has reached the college ranks and is becoming one of the best in the State of Ohio.
Below are photos of President/CEO Harry Huskey presenting Clark with his retired jersey and the Executive Board of the Cobras pictured also.
This post is a week late, but it's importance has not diminished at all. The 8u Cobras finished off the 2013 season with another tournament championship. This time, we traveled to Akron to play in the Ohio Bombers' Summer Slugfest.
After splitting the pool play games on Saturday, we entered bracket play as the #3 seed. We faced the host team and knocked them out with a very hard-fought game. The boys had to wait around for a couple of hours before playing the Southern Ohio Sting in the championship game.
The game was a summary of our entire season - incredible defense, timely hits, hard baserunning and a group of boys that played together as a team. It was a 10-5 victory and Summer Slugfest Championship!
After a mid-week victory over the Dublin Bats, the 8u Cobras were set to play in the Worthington Classic tournament. After a total washout on Friday, pool play began on Saturday. The boys came out swinging with two run-rule victories, 11-3 over the Gahanna Lions and 19-7 over the Worthington Nationals.
Bracket play began on Sunday and the boys were ready to roll. The Cobras defeated the Worthington Dynamite by a score of 21-0 to advance to the championship game.
The championship game was a rematch against the Gahanna Lions. The Cobras got an early lead and never looked back, ending up with a 12-4 victory and Worthington Classic championship!
This tournament was total domination from start to finish. The Cobras outscored their opponents by a total of 63-14, resulting in a 4-0 record and every victory being a run-rule.
After six successful seasons as the Westerville Wildcats coach, Eric Robbins is taking his talented core group of players and joining forces with the Columbus Cobras organization to field a 15u team for 2014. Established in 1985, the Columbus Cobras are well recognized as a premier Central Ohio amateur baseball organization. The newly formed Cobras 15u team will be seeking to add 3-5 high level baseball players to join this talented core to compete in the most competitive tournaments in the region.
Our 2014 season will begin after the high school season in mid-May and run through mid-July. We plan to play in 7-8 tournaments with mid-week games and practices also on the schedule. This is an opportunity for the committed baseball player whose goal is to excel in the sport at the high school level and beyond.
If this sounds like what you are looking for, and you have the skills and qualifications to play at the highest level in the 15u age group next season, please forward your information to email@example.com. Please include player name, current team, size, position(s), school district, and family contact information. All inquiries will be held in strict confidence.
