(La Porte, IN) - The La Porte Slicers are off to a strong start in high school baseball.
The Slicers are 11 and 3 after winning 9 of their last 10 games.
Last season was cancelled by COVID-19 so the Slicers with just two seniors weren’t quite sure what to expect.
Head Coach Scott Upp said there are always high expectations with any group of players but their level of play has been a bit surprising.
“The kids right now are playing almost at the expectations. There’s still a lot of room there that we can improve on what we’re doing but not a bad start,” he said.
Upp said pitching that’s been getting better along with defense have a lot to do with the team’s success right now.
“We want to throw a minimal 65-percent strikes. Our guys are attaining those levels or better,” he said.
The Slicers play again tomorrow at home against Lake Central.
