  • MLive.com’s Bay City Sports section posted another update about Detroit Tigers rookie and former Kellogg Community College baseball player Ryan Longstreth (pictured above). According to the article, “In 10 appearances since being drafted in the 40th round out of Central Michigan University, Longstreth has fine-tuned his game and adapted quickly to his spot as a lefthanded reliever for the Gulf Coast League Tigers in racking up 17 strikeouts compared to only five walks while building up a 3-0 record and a 2.92 ERA. … With a current streak of 10 2/3 innings without allowing an earned run, Longstreth’s role in the minors could feature a rapid ascent if he keeps rolling the way he has been.”
  • The Battle Creek Enquirer posted an article highlighting business covered in last night’s Kellogg Community College Board of Trustees meeting, which includes information about the Board approving ballot language to ask for a renewal of the millage to fund upkeep and renovation of the college’s facilities. “On Nov. 6, voters across KCC’s district will give the yea or nay to a 15-year, 0.75-mill tax that would raise $2.6 million in its first year, according to the ballot language,” the Enquirer reports. “The college is asking less of voters than it did when the tax was last approved in 1998.”
  • The Soo Evening News out of Sault Ste. Marie posted an article about Rudyard senior Mackenzie Gibson being named to the All-State Division 4 baseball team as a utility player while the team’s Cora VanSloten received an honorable mention as a third baseman. “Gibson and VanSloten, who have both signed with Kellogg Community College, have been invited to play in the Michigan High School Coaches Association All-Star game at Michigan State on July 18,” the Soo Evening News reports.
