The La Porte High School baseball coach is being recognized. Scott Upp has been named District Coach of the Year for the 2021 season.
The Indiana High School Baseball Coaches Association will present Upp with the award tomorrow night during a banquet in Indianapolis.
The Voice of the Slicers, Chip Jones, said the team excelled last year despite some challenges on the roster.
“We really had a pretty young team. We were missing some guys from injury. They should come back this year as strong or stronger,” he said.
Upp has been the Slicers head baseball coach for over 23 years. The Slicers went 23 and 7 last year.
