     Kyle Crockett makes Cleveland Indians' opening day roster
Considering how well Kyle Crockett pitched for the Cleveland Indians in 43 appearances in 2014, you had to guess if he was healthy he'd be in the bullpen on Monday when the Cleveland Indians open the Major League Baseball regular season at the Houston Astros.

Still, because this is the first time the former Poquoson High and University of Virginia star will be on the roster for Opening Day, it's a milestone worth mentioning. And, a well-deserved one.

       Poquoson man convicted after harvesting oysters in polluted water; commission suspends licenses
The Virginia Marine Resources Commission has suspended a Poquoson commercial fisherman's licenses after he was convicted of taking oysters from a condemned area, an official said.

Robert K. Topping Jr. was convicted Jan. 27 on one count of taking oysters from a condemned area and one count of removing oysters from a condemned area during a closed season, Virginia Marine Resources Commission spokeswoman Laurie Naismith said in a news release.

Waterways are divided into sections that dictate when, where and by whom oysters can be harvested. Condemned areas designate waters that are so heavily polluted that oysters may not be harvested at all, according to the commission.

“Taking oysters illegally from polluted water bodies is a serious offense that potentially endangers consumer health," Commissioner John M.R. Bull said in the release. "The Commission has no tolerance for this behavior."

The commission voted Tuesday to suspend all of Topping’s licenses to take or catch fish, shellfish, or marine organisms for one year, according to Naismith. His fishing privileges, within the Commonwealth’s tidal waters, are also suspended for one year, she said.

     York's Harp shows toughness with his arm and bat in a 5-3 baseball win over Poquoson
The difference York High coaches cited between Eric Harp's previous so-so basketball career and his all-state recognition of this season is an increase in toughness. That trait has carried over to the baseball field, where Harp's pitching and clutch hitting were the keys to the Falcons' 5-3 win Tuesday at Poquoson.

Harp's grit was most evident after an infield error extended the bottom of the third inning, and Poquoson took advantage via Drew Watkins' two-run single to take a 3-1 lead. Harp's first response was to strike out the next batter to end the inning.

Then, in the top of the fourth with two outs and runners on second and third, Harp tied the game with a two-run double to deep center. Gabe Simmons followed with a go-ahead double for the Falcons, paving the way to victory as Harp blanked the Islanders over the final four innings.

"I'm not disappointed because we played better today," Islanders coach Ken Bennett said. "We got a little bit better at the top of the (batting) lineup today and hopefully we'll get better at the bottom as we go along.

"Defensively, a little bit better. It's a work in progress, and is going to be for a while, but I feel we made a step in the right direction which is what I wanted to see."
