Falcon likely out for season


© St. Petersburg Times, published March 1, 2001

One of the three Dunedin pitchers injured in a one-car crash Feb. 22 in Dunedin possibly is out for the season.

Kyle Schmidt, who was driving, sustained a broken left (non-throwing) arm. The senior, who has signed with Georgia Tech, will begin rehabilitation next week and is expected to begin throwing from a mound in six to eight weeks, Dunedin coach Tom Hilbert said.

Matt Cheek, also a right- handed senior, sustained a bruised shoulder and hip and is expected to return to action in a limited role next week.

Bryan Banks, a senior right-hander who also plays first base and outfield, likely will be back in the lineup in two weeks after sustaining cuts above his left eye and left earlobe that required more than 100 stitches.

Schmidt's Volvo struck a utility pole at the corner of Keene Road and Salem Court when he swerved to avoid an object on the road.

"It was pretty serious," Hilbert said. "They're very fortunate considering how the car was." -- PETE YOUNG
