We probably know each other...or know of each other.

I threw against you guys in '85 at your the snow...and you beat the snot out of me. I think we came back to win (12-11?), but something like 9(?) of those runs were mine.

I miss Alec. If he could have ever figured out how to use his lower body, he would have done some damage. As it was, I've never seen anybody throw harder with just his arm. I played up for a lot of years, so I knew Alec as a teammate, coach, and substitute teacher (who utterly crushed one of my shots in a student-faculty hoops game). I didn't play for his dad, but I find myself utterly overwhelmed whenever I am at Herndon HS and see the ballfield named for him.

Pete and I have similarly pronounced last names; people would get disappointed when they figured out I wasn't the guy they came to see. He was a teammate of mine one summer, briefly. He plunked a guy - HAD TO - and before the guy could get to the mound, we had all charged him from our dug out. We knew Pete was going places and couldn't get caught up in some summer league nonsense. Haven't seen him in a while.

Sisk was also a summer league teammate - he had one absurd summer when he hit well into the .400s. The Eppersons were your teammates at my shellacking at FCHS.

The name you're looking for is probably Bret Boehly. Moose of a kid. Ended up at Maryland for football, where he apparently dated Bonnie Bernstein for a bit. He basically ended my HS career with a moonshot at Robinson in the Regionals. Ruined a perfectly good game. I'm still very good friends with Shabosky off that team - he played at Wake.

I've never been very good at keeping up with people. There are rosters full of people that I wonder about...sounds like you know a lot of the same names.
