He didn't play a full season of winter baseball, pitching in only two games for a Toronto Blue Jays scout team after experiencing pain in his right elbow.

Jared Janke was hoping for a bloop single, or anything that would keep Diamond Bar High School's fading playoff hopes alive. He exceeded those expectations by about 100 yards.
