Hoskinson to play in All-Star Series

McMinnville’s Ky Hoskinson has been invited to compete in the 2022 Richardson Oregon All-Star Series June 18-19 at Oregon State University’s Goss Stadium. The Richardson Oregon All-Star Series showcases the top 6A and 5A senior high school baseball players in the state.

The first game of the series is slated for Saturday, June 18 at Goss Stadium. First pitch is 3 pm. The series concludes on Sunday, June 19 with a single game with a start time of 11 am. Both contests will be nine innings.

Hoskinson, the Pacific Conference’s Pitcher of the Year, will play for the South roster. The hard-throwing righthander will only bat in the series, as he recovers from an ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) strain in his elbow.

The senior led Mac in several major offensive categories including batting average (.432), on-base plus slugging (1.179), hits (41), doubles (10), runs (37) and stolen bases (18).

As a pitcher, Hoskinson tossed a perfect game, threw a no-hitter and went 10-0 while striking out 105 over 59-and-one-third innings during his final season with the Grizzlies.
