(La Porte, IN) - The high school baseball season in La Porte gets underway this afternoon at home. The Slicers play Hebron in a game broadcast live on 96-7 The Eagle beginning with the
pre-game show with Chip Jones at 5:15 p.m.
Head Coach Scott Upp said he has only two players with varsity experience because of the season last year being cancelled by COVID-19. He said other teams are also dealing with lack of varsity experience from not playing high school baseball for more than 600 days. “This year is like square one. It’s just a different ball game,” Upp said.
Upp said he expects his players to go through some early growing pains but also compete. The Slicers also play at home Thursday against Hobart.
