'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

All signs point to Freeport's Jarrod Mancine having a strong senior baseball season at The College of Wooster.

Mancine capped his junior campaign with All-Mid East Region First-Team honors after earning Most Valuable Player honors at the North Coast Athletic Conference Tournament.

An outfielder and leadoff hitter, Mancine had a .733 on-base percentage and seven RBI in the tournament and reached base safely in the Fighting Scots' final 40 games.

In all, he made 44 starts, hit .392, scored 45 runs and drove in 25 for Wooster (33-12), which reached the Mid-East Regional round of the NCAA Division III Tournament.

Two other local players also contributed at Wooster. Junior outfielder Shane Gallagher (Freeport) made 12 starts and played in 35 games, scoring 11 runs and driving in 11.
