Former Cape athlete on U.S. Navy All-Star team By Dave Wells Navy Seaman Jevon Wright bears a striking resemblance to the famous two-sport athlete Bo Jack- son. But unlike Bo, Wright knows baseball and the Navy. The son of Barbara Wright of Milton, Bo Wright is one of 25 sailors selected from Navy ships and installa- tions in the Norfolk, Va. area to play for an all-star Navy base- ball team. WRIGHT The team is comprised of players from the air- craft carrier USS Enterprise base- ball team and oflmrs who were se- lected through an open tryout. The Navy team finished second in the 1993 Men's Adult Baseball League Fall Classic in Clearwater, Fla. Wright, 20, was selected af- ter two sets of tryouts and will play right field and augment the pitching staff on occasion as a hard-throwing sidearm relief pitcher when needed. "Pitching sidearm is something most guys don't see very often," said the 1992 graduate of Cape Henlopen High School. "It helps me catch a lot of hitters by sur- prise." The Navy team will play the Colorado Silver Bullets, the only all-female professional baseball team in the country. Managed by Hall of Famer Phil Niekro, the Sil- ver Bullets consist of the top 22 female baseball players in the country. The teams will meet Tuesday, June 6, at Norfolk's Harbor Park, and again on Sun- day, June 11, at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. "I think playing the Silver Bul- lets will be a great experience," said Wright. "I've seen the movie 'A League of Their Own' and I've wondered if females could com- pete at hardball. I've heard they're good, and we'll be practic- ing every day until the game, so it should be interesting. We deft- nitely can't go to sleep on them." (Dm, e Wells is a journalist as- signed to the Navy Public Affairs Center in Norfolk.) People Continued from page 52 opportunities. TRAINING TIME - Save the $39.95 per month for the solo flex machine. You'll never look like the models in the commercial. Boy, talk about Baby's got Back. That woman looks like she's been doing hamstring curls with lead watermelons. Three solid months of training with weights and run- ning, biking and swimming will prepare the competitive athlete for competition in the fall. Adults can smoke cigarettes and drink coffee and your friends will think you look wonderful. Most athletes party more than they train. It's a fact. The work ethic will put you in the prime time. SNIPPETS - Cape's baseball pitcher and football center Ben Evick must decide between the Blue Gold All-Star football game and the Carpenter Cup baseball tournament. A player cannot par- ticipate in both programs ... My 1966 New Jersey 16-foot, two- tone blue speedboat with 85 horse Evinrude is back in the water and running with the horsepower of a 1966 Shelby. My idea of boating is food forays to Norma's in Mil- ton or to the Rusty Rudder in Dewey Beach. Who wants to catch some slimy fish that need to he cleaned? We once trolled spin- ning pepperonis off the beach at Wildwood and scared up two Ital- ian girls with beehive hairdos. Better than false albacore or sea rockin' robins ... The Flyers begin a war this week with the New Jer- sey Devils. Chicago takes on De- troit in the other Conference final. The last team that deserves to win the Stanley Cup is New Jersey. Where will they have the victory parade, Great Adventure or Poughkeepsie?
