Fish sign ex-Phillie

THE Winnipeg Goldeyes are bringing in an experienced Canadian pitcher to help their quest for a second American Association championship.

On Monday, the team announced they have signed right-handed Chris Kissock, a 2007 Philadelphia Phillies ninth-round draft pick, to a deal for the 2013 season.

Kissock, who hails from Trail, B.C., played his first six professional seasons in the Phillies organization. Goldeyes manager Rick Forney said the team plans to use Kissock out of the bullpen and may give him the opportunity to act as closer.

Last season, Kissock's pitching was partly derailed by a rib injury, which Forney described as a result of the organization pushing the pitcher to change his arm slot and become "a situational" type of pitcher. "That didn't work with Chris," Forney said.

 

Roasting Reinebold

A familiar football face is coming back to Winnipeg -- and ready to get a little red in the face -- to help raise some funds for the Winnipeg Rifles football club.

Former Blue Bombers head coach and general manager Jeff Reinebold will be roasted at the Rifles' annual fundraising dinner on April 24 at Canad Inns Polo Park. Among those ready to take comedic shots at Reinebold's expense are CJOB sportscaster Bob Irving and former Bombers Troy Westwood and Bob Cameron.

Tickets are $175 each, or $1,250 for a corporate table of eight, and available through the Rifles website: riflesfootball.com.

 

Pistons forward tops

STEINBACH Pistons forward Justin Dalebozik was named the MJHL's Recycle Everywhere player of the week on Monday. The honour comes after the 20-year-old Treherne product scored a hat trick en route to six points in two playoff games for the Pistons. Dauphin Kings forward Mitch Van Teeling and Pistons goalie Corey Koop were runners-up.

 

Track star honoured

RISING track star Alhaji Mansaray was named the Smitty's Bison Sports male athlete of the week on Monday after the rookie won a bronze medal in high jump at the CIS Track and Field Championships in Edmonton over the weekend. The 6-1 Mansaray, born in Sierra Leone, also finished his season being named a Canada West second team all-star.

 

Going out in style

SPRINTER Leah Harpelle was named the Bisons' female athlete of the week, after completing her five-season university career by running the third leg of the Bisons' 4x200-metre relay at the CIS Track and Field Championships.
