Stone close to hitting for cycle for Crusaders

Baseball player Gerry Stone is The Telegram sports department’s choice as athlete of the week.

The veteran Holy Cross Trinity Pub baseball player was a triple away from hitting for the cycle in a St. John’s Molson Senior Baseball League game last Saturday at St. Pat’s Ball Park.

The veteran all-star hit a pair of singles, a double and home run, knocking in four runs in a four-for-four day at the plate as Holy Cross beat the Feildians 11-5.

For good measure, Stone scored a pair of runs and stole a base.

In addition to his duties with the Crusaders, Stone is also a veteran with the St. John’s Capitals.
