High school baseball: No-hit king Nolan Ryan among pitchers with at least 500 career strikeouts - HIGHSCORE
High school baseball: No-hit king Nolan Ryan among pitchers with at least 500 career strikeouts
David Clyde of Westchester (Houston) was a high school legend in the early 1970s and his resume includes a multitude of records in the National Federation of High Schools record book, including the mark for career strikeouts with 842. Except that depending on how you determine career strikeouts, Clyde is not Nos. 1 or 2 or even third or fourth.

In fact Clyde comes in behind Mississippi hurler Ronnie Richardson, a pair of Iowa pitchers in Bill Varner and Mike Boddicker, and Oklahoma leader Mark Turner. They are among the pitchers featured in the MaxPreps list of pitchers with over 500 career strikeouts.

To be fair, Clyde does hold the record for a four-year career, which is what the National Federation of High Schools recognizes. However, if a fifth year is included, Richardson moves into the top spot with 856 strikeouts.

Then, if you include pitchers from the schools in Iowa and Oklahoma that play both a summer and fall season (and in some cases a spring and summer season), then you have to include Varner, Turner and Boddicker.

Under these circumstances, Varner set the national record with 1,042 strikeouts in his four years at Decorah, graduating in 1970. He played three spring seasons to go with four summer seasons. Turner had 917 strikeouts in three fall and four spring seasons for Vanoss in Oklahoma from 1989-92.

Boddicker topped Varner for the all-time lead in Iowa, and the nation, with 1,122 strikeouts from 1972-75 while at Norway. Boddicker played three fall seasons to go with four spring seasons. The MLB All-Star also holds the record for most all-time wins with 79 (with all seasons considered). Boddicker went on to earn American League Conference Series MVP honors in 1983 en route to helping the Baltimore Orioles win the World Series.

Clyde also played professionally after being selected by the Texas Rangers with the first overall pick in 1973. Twenty days after pitching his final high school game, Clyde started for the Rangers and won his first MLB outing. Injuries marred his career, however, and he finished with 18 wins and 33 losses.

The first player to record 500 career strikeouts during a spring-only career is believed to be Francis Vidrine, who had exactly 500 while at Seligman (Ariz.) from 1955 to 1958. None other than MLB all-time strikeout leader Nolan Ryan of Alvin (Texas) became the all-time leader in 1965 with 510 strikeouts. Future California Angels teammate Lloyd Allen of Selma (Calif.) topped Ryan with 588 strikeouts upon graduation in 1968. Gene Carfrey of Westfall (Williamsport, Ohio) raised the record to 649 strikeouts in 1969 and then Clyde raised it to 842 in 1973. Richardson has held the spring record ever since 1987.

Another Mississippi pitcher, Randolph Salters of Mooreville, might have broken Clyde's records in the mid-1980s, but his career numbers are unavailable. According to former coach Rex Berryman, in an e-mail to MaxPreps, all of his records and scorebooks were inadvertently destroyed by contractors when Mooreville moved from the old gym to the new gym in 1988.

Salters holds the national record for single season strikeouts, although that total is up for dispute. Three different stories by the Clarion Ledger list Salters with 344 strikeouts, 366 strikeouts and 381 strikeouts during a 25-4 season. The 381 total is the most likely total since the Clarion Ledger ran a story about Salters on May 23, 1985, listing him with 366 and he then pitched in the championship game on May 25, striking out 15.

Salters struck out somewhere in the neighborhood of 140 batters as a junior, but exact totals are unavailable. His sophomore and freshman season are also unknown and he finished his career with a record of 53-9.

With new rules restricting the amount of batters a pitcher can face in a week (Salters once pitched 27 innings in four days in the state tournament), it's unlikely anyone will top the totals amassed by Clyde, Richardson, Varner, Turner and Boddicker. The most recent addition to the list is Bubba Gomez of Fremont Christian (Fremont, Calif.), who had 569 strikeouts between 2016 and 2019. That's still nearly 300 strikeouts away from the spring record.

Sources for the list include the NFHS record book, state association record books, coaches association record books, Iwasatthegame.com, Mississippi Baseball Record Book by John Smillie, and the Cal-Hi Sports Record by Mark and Nelson Tennis.

High school basketball: HIGHSCORE National Player of the Year Chet Holmgren commits to Gonzaga - HIGHSCORE
High school basketball: MaxPreps National Player of the Year Chet Holmgren commits to Gonzaga
MaxPreps National Player of the Year Chet Holmgren of Minnehaha Academy (Minneapolis) announced Monday he will attend Gonzaga University next season, as the versatile 7-foot center looks to help get the Bulldogs over the hump to capture the program's first state championship.

"The process was hard," Holmgren said on ESPN. "I had a lot to learn on the go. I had to lean on others and get their advice. My dad went through it, and coach Larry Suggs with Jalen. I kept getting consistent advice that I will get a feeling when I know. Not to over-analyze everything because everything sounds good. Nobody sells their weakness."
It's been a busy past two weeks for Holmgren, who led the Redhawks to their fourth consecutive state championship on April 10, tallying 18 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists and two blocks as Minnehaha crushed Alexandria 80-29.

Holmgren earned MaxPreps Minnesota Player of the Year honors last week, while adding MaxPreps National Player of the Year honors later in the week along with Minnesota Mr. Basketball honors.

The future Bulldog averaged 20.8 points, 12.6 rebounds, 4.7 blocks and 4.5 assists, connecting on 80 percent of his attempts from the field this season. Last season, Holmgren helped guide the Redhawks to their first MaxPreps Top 25 finish, while also being named a first team MaxPreps Junior All-American after averaging 14.6 points, 10 rebounds, 4.9 blocks and 2.4 assists.

The versatile 7-footer finished his prep career with 1,567 points, 964 rebounds and 456 blocked shots as Minnehaha Academy compiled a 128-15 record with four state titles.

Regarded as the top prospect in the Class of 2021 according to 247Sports, Holmgren chose Gonzaga over Georgetown, Memphis, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina and Ohio State.

High school baseball rankings: Buford enters Georgia postseason undefeated and No. 1 in MaxPrep Top 25 - HIGHSCORE
High school baseball rankings: Buford enters Georgia postseason undefeated and No. 1 in MaxPrep Top 25
With an 18-strikeout performance by Dylan Lesko, Buford ended the regular season with a 4-0 win over Grayson on Monday. The Wolves continue to sit atop the MaxPreps Top 25 high school baseball rankings heading into Georgia's postseason.

The Peach State's playoff system calls for a best-of-three series in each round of the playoffs, meaning the Wolves could lose a game in a series, yet move on to the next round. Thus Buford could win a state championship, yet drop in the rankings should it split any series games along the way.

Sitting in the wings waiting to pounce are Jesuit (Tampa, Fla.), Madison Central (Madison, Miss.) and Stoneman Douglas (Parkland, Fla.). Jesuit takes on IMG Academy on Tuesday, and a win over the Ascenders would be a signature victory for the Tigers in the 2021 season heading into the postseason. The Florida playoff system is a single-elimination format, meaning Jesuit would need to go undefeated the rest of the way in order to have a chance to surpass Buford.

Madison Central also plays a best-of-three postseason format, but the Jaguars have been simply dominant this year against Mississippi 6A competition. There's a chance Madison Central could jump over Buford and Jesuit (assuming losses by both teams) since it is currently undefeated.

Stoneman Douglas is also in the mix since it could potentially win a Florida state championship and it takes on No. 10 Calvary Christian Academy (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) in a non-district contest Wednesday.

The wildcard here is St. Mary Prep (Orchard Lake, Mich.), which has dominated after getting its seasons started earlier this month. The Eaglets have a ways to go and will still be playing while everyone else ahead of them has finished the season. That could allow St. Mary Prep to climb all the way to No. 1 should it have an impressive finish to its season.

Dropped out: Auburn (Ala.), Carrollton (Ga.), Orange Lutheran (Orange, Calif.); Winder-Barrow (Winder, Ga.)

Game of the Week: Friendswood 2, Manvel 1. Friendswood remained undefeated on the season with a walk-off double in the bottom of the eighth with two outs that scored Izaak Pacheco, who had reached on a walk.

Player of the Week: Henry Godbout, Baylor. Godbout finished the week hitting in eight straight at-bats over two games, including two doubles and a triple.

Recruit Watch: Jack Walker, Barbe. The Buccaneers senior missed all of last year due to injury, but he's making up for lost time. He had a no-hitter against Lafayette with eight strikeouts.

Game to Watch: IMG Academy vs. Jesuit. Both the Ascenders and the Tigers have a shot at finishing the season as the No. 1 team in the country. Since IMG does not play in the postseason in Florida, it can really use a win over Jesuit to give it an edge over the Tigers should Jesuit go on to win a state championship.

Streaks: Webster (Wis.), a team that has not played a game since June 13, 2019, still holds the longest active winning streak with 37 games in a row. Andrean (Merrillville, Ind.), raised its win streak to 37 in a row, before dropping its first game since the 2019 season. St. Mary's Prep (Orchard Lake, Mich.) is closing in on Webster with 14 straight wins this year to go with 20 straight wins to end the 2019 season. St. Mary's Prep did not play in 2020. The Eaglets are undefeated in 43 straight games (41-0-2).

Iowa is the only state currently playing high school sports as its summer baseball and softball seasons are in progress and two weeks away from the postseason.

An ESPN report from Elizabeth Merrill over the weekend indicated that ongoing action in the Hawkeye State hasn't been untouched by coronavirus, however.

Merrill reports that 25 of 338 baseball teams and 20 softball teams have encountered some type of exposure to COVID-19.

The Des Moines Register reported Wednesday that the state's top-ranked Class 4A baseball team, Dowling Catholic (West Des Moines), has ended its season after a member of the team tested positive for COVID-19.

The school's softball team is also ending its season.

MaxPreps was on hand June 15 as the season got underway a month later than originally scheduled. Those initial baseball and softball contests in Iowa were the first high school sports events since the pandemic shut things down in March.
