High-SchoolCalifornia: Cyrus Parsons

Cal-Hi Sports Boys State Stat Stars

April, 6, 2012
Among the best on this week’s baseball honor roll is one of the state’s top Class of 2013 football recruits plus Erik Barron of San Jose Mt. Pleasant (threw second straight no-hitter) and Luke Eubank of Newbury Park (threw second no-hitter).

We’re proud once again to collect weekly writeups of the most significant individual high school baseball totals in California. We use these as the basis for updating the state record book, which has been published seven times, most recently in the spring of 2009. To report a state stat star of your own, please email highlights to Mark.Tennis@espn.com.

The Cardinals also beat Oak Grove 24-0 in a recent game. Barron didn’t pitch in that game, but he hit and went 3-for-4 with six RBIs.
