Two Colorado HS pitchers in the All-Star game, Melancon and Gausman:


I got to coach against both of them.

Mark Melancon, Golden HS----closer for the Giants
Melancon was born in Colorado and attended Golden High School, where he lettered all four years in baseball, basketball and three times in football. He was also named to several All-State teams in these three sports and helped win a Baseball State Championship in 2003. They got to the finals in football and semis in basketball. Luke Roberts, WR at CSU was on those teams with Melancon. They were really nice kids.

We had a pre-season football camp up in the mountains and shared the facility with Golden in 2002. We scrimmaged some 7 on 7 with them. We did fun games at night and played dodgeball. Melancon was definitely a stud at dodgeball. We played them in hoops that year as well.

Kevin Gausman, Grandview HS. He also played basketball along with Chris Martin (the controversial DL that transferred in from out of state). We beat Grandview every time in hoops. Gausman and Martin racked up lots of T's in their basketball time. He's become quite a pitcher since joining the Giants.

  Imagine all the jobs for ex-pitchers if there was pro dodgeball. ** -- The Midnight Toker 07/07/2021 12:25PM
