About this Article

With a linebacker's chest and thighs, 5-foot-9 Adam Gomski is never going to win a foot race on a Grayslake North baseball team full of fast guys. Which doesn't mean the Knights slugger with the truck driver's handshake can't floor it when needed. Take Gomski's leg double in the second inning of Grayslake North's 10-7 win over visiting Hampshire in a Fox Valley Conference Fox Division game Saturday morning. Take the senior's fourth-inning stolen base, which was 1 of 8 in as many attempts by the home team. "I don't steal much," said Gomski, a three-year varsity veteran who will play at Trinity International University in Deerfield next year. "We were talking in the dugout," Grayslake North coach Andy Strahan said. "Adam went to the mound to close out the game, and I was debating whether or not to use a courtesy runner (if he got on base in the sixth). (Someone said), Well, he did steal a base earlier today, Coach.'
