Hillman and Athens combined to scatter 15 runs on 18 hits during the 1992 Class D Final, one of the highest-scoring baseball championship games in MHSAA history.

And calling them all was a familiar voice that should bring comfort to baseball fans at least 35 and older as we wait for a return to the diamond this spring.

Longtime Detroit Tigers broadcaster Paul Carey, along with his nephew and also longtime broadcaster Mike Carey, called the action for PASS Sports as Hillman went on to an 8-7 victory to clinch its first Finals championship in the sport. The win also started a string of three Hillman Tigers titles over six seasons.

Hillman won on a one-out, bases-loaded bunt single in the bottom of the seventh inning by Mark McMurray, who plated Tim Jones. McMurray, a freshman at the time, also pitched four innings in the contest.
