First Colonial high school junior baseball player Ross Tiaba is the HR Sports Star of the Week for his heroics on the diamond.
Tiaba’s first home run of the season was a big one. Trailing Forest Park 3-0 in the fourth inning of its 6A South Region Semifinal, Tiaba hit a three run shot over the left field wall to tie the game at 3-3.
Chin Moss scored the game-winning run on a wild pitch giving First Colonial a 4-3 win and a berth in the state playoffs.
“I just went up to the plate thinking I was going to get a base hit and it worked,” Tiaba said.”It’s crazy, it’s insane, big plays, big hits, we did it.”
Congratulations to Ross Tiaba, the HR Sports Star of the Week.
