2015 District 22 Junior Division Champions
On behalf of our entire League community, we want to congratulate our Juniors baseball team and coaching staff James Smith (Manager), Art Gordon and Don Kaplan (Coaches) for earning the 2015 District 22 Junior League Championship and representing our District in the PA Section 8 tournament this week, with a chance to advance to the State Junior League Tournament. This is a history making moment for our league and we couldn't be more proud!
Here is a great write-up from Manager James Smith to his players, sharing here with you:
"Men: Great job yesterday.
We got down but never gave up the fight and won what will become known as "The War at Masons Mill."
Kudos to Dan "Flash" Gordon who was behind the plate for 15 full innings. He also laid down a perfect bunt for a hit that scored Ben from second in the first.
To our pitchers: Ben "BK" Kaplan who started the first game and had 5K's; Dale "The Hammer" Jacobs, his 9K pitching in both games of the double headers; and Brennon Paik who got the win in the second game striking out four.
Leads in hitting by steady first baseman, Garrett "Southpaw" Schmidt drove in 4 runs. He and Adam "The Turk" Turk-Karan each had three hits with Adam scoring two runs.
Our leadoff hitter Devon "DJ" Smith, struggled early but in the top of the 8th, hit a line drive double with bases loaded that scored two and fueled a five run, eighth and drove in the eventual game winning run.
The utility player, Chad "Ocho" Johnson. He played short, 3rd and LF. He went 2-8, batting and scored a run.
Francisco "I'm taking one for the team" Lopez was hit twice and scored both times.
And to the man at second ~ Matt "steady hands" Ryan, recorded the biggest out of the game. A line drive for the final out to seal the win in the bottom of the eighth."
