I am quite the proud Auntie to John. What makes this even more "close to home", Tommy Elliott is a past high school classmate of mine and Kman's. Tommy was a terrific baseball player as they say, "in the day". Nowadays, he's a terrific coach, albeit for the once rival Heights' Yellow Jackets.
I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see John's name on a Pro roster in the not so distant future.
Arlington Heights’ John Biggs hit five home runs and collected 13 RBI in the Yellow Jackets’ 33-0 victory against Dunbar.
"When he gets hot, he gets hot," Heights coach Tommy Elliott said. "Once he got home runs his first two at-bats, it was just something fun for him to try and do."
Biggs hit for the home run cycle with a solo-, two-run, three-run and grand slam home runs. Elliott said the grand slam came last and he was just letting his slugger swing away.
"I don’t have a home run signal. If I did I would give it all the time," Elliott said.
