Love of the game drives San Bruno’s Burns

It was an evening like no other for San Bruno Joe DiMaggio pitcher Kyle Burns. The right-hander’s two-hit shutout — leading San Bruno to an 8-0 win over the San Francisco Barbarians Wednesday at Lara Field — was almost an aside from his career night at the plate. In four plate appearances, Burns reached base four times, going 2 for 2 with a pair of walks and two runs scored. … As a senior, Burns did not try out for the Padres, but instead took a baseball operations role as the team’s statistician. Currently, the right-hander is gearing up for a tryout at the collegiate level. He will be attending Westmont College in the fall and is hoping to crack the roster with the NAIA powerhouse Warriors. more
