If you’re going to photobomb Skyline hitting coach John Quintell, it’s best to go with the rock-fist. Matt Fosse not only punctuated his Skyline career with a classic photobomb, the sophomore is closing his season on quite a hot streak.
As a part-time catcher, the Burlingame alumnus went a season and a half without a batting average. Since tabbing his first collegiate hit March 22 against Hartnell, Fosse is hitting .364 (8 for 22), including a 2-for-2 showing in a 7-4 rematch win over Hartnell Tuesday in Skyline’s final home game of the year. Platooning with fellow Burlingame grad Keaton Eichman, the catching tandem represents two of six Burlingame grads on the Skyline roster this season; along with center fielder Michael Franco, first baseman Dean Aliamus, infielder Phil Caulfield and pitcher Tommy Caulfield. Skyline pitching coach Tony Brunicardi is also a Panthers alum.
The Coast Conference regular season concludes Thursday. The Trojans enter into play 10-13 in Coast Pacific Conference play, 14-21 overall, and have clinched fourth place in the Coast Pacific Conference.
