    North’s Jay Milo earns all-star honor

    -

    Eastlake North pitcher Jay Milo followed a simple recipe to strike out an impressive 100 batters in his high school baseball career.

    “Hard work pays off,” Milo said.

    Milo, who was selected to play in the 2014 Ohio Varsity All-Star Classic, will follow the same approach the rest of his life, beginning with his playing career at Thiel College.

    First, he’ll represent the Air Force All-Stars on Sunday along with North teammate Brian Keller.

    “I feel very honored to be selected to play in the game,” Milo said. “Even though it's fairly new, it's still a big accomplishment for me considering it will be my last high school game ever. I'm excited to be playing my last high school game with my long time best friend and teammate, Brian Keller. We've played baseball for a long time together and this will probably be the last time we stop on the field together on the same team.”

    At North, Milo helped lead the Rangers to a Premier Athletic Conference championship during his junior season.

    “It was the first outright title in a few years and it was great celebrating with my teammates,” he said. “I'm most proud of being able to say I helped win a conference title. Not a lot of high school athletes get to say that they do that.”

    The Ohio Varsity All-Star Classic will be played at Kenston High School with the first pitch scheduled for 4:05 p.m.
