A whiff to be proud of

Assistant Macomb County prosecutor Gordon Hosbein can identify with the great Detroit Tigers starting pitchers this week as the hurl against the vaunted New York Yankees in this American League Championship Series.
While pitching for the Oakland University Golden Grizzlies from 1999 to 2003, Hosbein struck out Yankees slugging first baseman Mark Teixeira in 2001 when he played for the Georgia Tech Bulldogs.
That’s quite an accomplishment to whiff the national college player of the year and future all-star major leaguer.
But Hosbein also humbly pointed out. “He went three for four.”
Oh well. Striking him out once is still something to boast about. After all, Phil Coke couldn’t do it Tuesday night.
