July 11th update: A phenomenal day in Nether Swarthmore Legion Baseball:
Seniors kicked off the day (10 am) with winning its 3rd straight complete game shutout in the Main Line Playoffs. Will Carey went the distance and helped extend opponents' scoreless streak to total 6 games (3 in playoffs and 3 final regular season games). With the win today, the Sr. Bulldogs secure a spot in the Championship game on Tuesday night, 5:30 pm, SHMS. Come out and make some noise!
Jrs. followed suit at 1 pm in the team's Main Line playoff home opener against Roxborough, winning 9-0. Chase Davis (5 innings) and Henry Dawes (2 innings) combined on the shutout. The Jr. Bulldogs play again Sunday, 4 pm at SHMS. Will we see you there?
Finally, it took the Sandlot team 2 games and 4 1/2 hours to do it (3:30 and 6 pm), but the 14 year old Bulldogs won the Southeastern PA Sandlot Playoff Championship against Aston-Media. AM, coming through the losers-bracket, took the first game in a well played, hard fought game (5-4), which forced the second championship game. In the second game, the Bulldogs won 8-1 behind two majestic bases-clearing doubles by Gabe Malek, and a rocket RBI double by Jake Fisher. Pitching and defense continued to be a strength for Nether as Noah Atsaves (3 innings) and Dan Crossan (4 innings) threw strikes and let catcher Brady Mutz and the defense do the heavy lifting. The Sandlot team has secured a place in the State Tournament at Oxford (Lincoln University) starting next weekend.
Many thanks to all players, coaches, families and supporters for making today a wonderful day for our community! We are, as they say, just getting the party started!
