In the state tournament in Austin, he came on to pitch 5 innings against the Austin Gold Sox after Tanner Hamilton went down to an injury.

Fall 2007
Kyle Spangler #18 Kyle Spangler again proved to be the City Leagues Best Power hitter, Best Closer and when he wanted to best defensive infielder. Kyle made sacrifices and did not miss a game. He hit two 3 run home runs in the championship game. He struck out 15 of the 17 batters he faced and didn't allow a base hit in 2007 in HMABL. After several failed attempts to convert Spangler to a starter the Apollos scouting bureau is happy with Spangler out of the pen for many seasons to come.

Fall 2006 Mike Wilson
Mike Wilson #57 Mike Wilson again proved to be the City Leagues Best hitter, Best Pitcher and when he wanted to fastest runner. Wilson single handley beat the Metro Astros in the Apollos opener. Then saved his best outing on the mound for the Championship Game where he threw 9 innings and struck out 12 only walking 2. He lead the team in batting average and was a terror at the plate with no strikeouts. Mike is probably in the best shape of his career in his mind 30's and continues to be the best two way player in the history of the Apollos.

Spring 2006 Manny Lujan
Manny Lujan #34 Manny was recruited by the Apollos and the scouting department of the Apollos decided to convert him into a shortshop...He made the adjustment and was solid after three games in. The scouting bureau also worked with Manny to adjust his cowardly baserunning (delay steals, taking extra bases wildly and aggressively).. Manny attended all the Apollos games.. he had 29 hits and 30 rbi's to lead the team...he played errorless shortstop in 5 games in 2 days in Birmingham... and hit the key grand slam in the Metro Astros playoff game and closed the game on the mound for the Apollos... voting was not close, others receiving 2nd place votes: Tim Brown, Andrew Dunn, Mike Wilson and Alex Dutka...Manny attended Laredo CC and Westside High School and will be playing college ball in the Fall.

Spring 2003
Marcos Quinones #25 from Ponce,Puerto Rico--Cleveland,Ohio 
Marcos returned to Houston from California in January where he had retired from baseball. After a fierce recruiting war the Apollos convinced Quinones to wear the Royal and Gold. After the scrimmages and his wildness on the mound he decided that he would be play but didn't want to pitch in the regular season saving his arm for the playoffs. Marcos was also the Apollos best hitter with 22 rbis and a .569 batting average with 3 home runs. The Apollos sorely lacked RBI production as Bob Phaff, Chris Gibson and Clifton Siems all went down with injuries during the season. Marcos beat the Mudcats, Deer Park Cardinals and the Metro Astros in succession as a pitcher to give the Apollos their third championship in four seasons. Marcos had 14 RBI's in 22 at bats in the New Orleans Tournament. He also closed out the final game on the mound and played a great defensive shortstop. Quinones's secret to success is surfing in Freeport before the games. He would surf for several hours claiming it gives him arm strength.

Alex pitched 8 innings in the championship game to give the Apollos their second championship in three seasons. Before playing for the Apollos Dutka played at Spring Woods and for the Amarillo Dillas. He will return to the minors in 2003 and could play for the Apollos in future for conditioning.

Spring 2002/Spring 2004/Spring 2005
Sonny Terrazas #12 2002 Sonny DDDDDDDelight is from Texas City where he played for the Sting in high school as an outfielder. He pitched and played outfield for the Apollos. He was by far the ace of the Apollos in the Spring of 2002. He made all the long drives from Texas City to make the games. Sonny also was very patient at the plate drawing walks and hitting when people would pitch to him. He is a switch hitter but he no longer hits left handed because it gives teams the chance to hit his pitching arm. He hit a grand slam in a critcal situation against the Tigers in the Championship round. Sonny was very durable for the Apollos. He He loved to throw the entire 9 inning game. Below were Sonny's stats.
