Athletes of the Week

The Shelbyville Daily Union Athletes of the Week did their thing on the diamond. One accomplished a rare feat in baseball and the other is posting a strong comeback after injury.

Curtis Ramsey of Central A&M has had a super senior year in football and basketball, now in baseball. On Saturday against Mulberry Grove, Ramsey pulled off one of the most difficult singular accomplishments in baseball. He hit for the cycle. Ramsey went a single, a double, a triple, and a home run.

Ramsey not only went 4-for-4 at the plate, he was the winning pitcher. Ramsey (3-1) pitched a 2-hit shutout, allowing four walks and striking out three. He also went 2-for-3 on Thursday with a triple.

Ramsey has three home runs and prior to the weekend was 5th in the area in RBIs with 18. His ERA was also listed at just 1.83.

Christian Vonderheide of Stew-Stras was injured and missed most of the basketball season. But for the Windsor/Stew-Stras co-op baseball team (16-4), he is shining. Vonderheide is 5-1 as a pitcher.

Vonderheide picked up his fourth win on Monday against Neoga, going the distance, allowing three runs, five hits, 3 walks in six innings, while striking out eight. He won a 1-run ball game on Saturday against Athens. Vonderheide went the distance, pitching a shutout. He gave up just four hits in seven innings, walking no one, and striking out 11.

On Friday against Cumberland, Vonderheide hit 2-for-4, scoring three times and driving in two run. Vonderheide went 3-for-4 against Neoga, scoring 2 runs and driving in one.
