Malisheski, Wauconda sock it to Carmel
Jun 1, 2015 10:26 PM -
The recently purchased stirrup socks of Wauconda pitcher Kevin Malisheski don't stink. Truth be told, hitters have been whiffing, so to speak. "I started wearing them about three weeks ago," Malisheski said. "It's been like a feel-good thing. Maybe it's a superstition. I'm just playing well when I wear them." Malisheski stood out again Monday, and not just because of the gold-striped, purple stirrups, which none of his teammates wear. Malisheski pitched 6-plus scoreless inning of 2-hit ball, as Wauconda shut out fifth-seeded Carmel Catholic 3-0 in the Class 3A Carmel regional final.
