The Lisbon varsity baseball team may have gotten out to a slow start but turned their year around by beating most teams in the EOAC, and other team not in the league. The Blue Devil baseball team is led by Logan Bell, who is batting .524 on the year, Justin Sweeney, who has been pitching really well for the Devils, and Tyler Welsh, who is the star center fielder for them.
The Blue Devils open up tournament play with Leetonia at home for the sectional semi-final and if they win that, they play Lowellville at Bob Cene Park in Struthers. The Blue Devil baseball players feel like their team is ready and primed for a run. Justin Sweeney said, “We are very happy with our tournament draw and think we have a good chance getting to the district final.”
For the Blue Devil baseball team this year there has been an array of records broken. Logan Bell has broken the strikeouts in a game record, setting it at 18. He has also broken the career RBI (Runs batted in) and has a chance to break the strikeout in a season record.
