(La Porte, IN) - The La Porte Slicers finished the regular season with wins in high school baseball.
The focus now is on the sectionals in Plymouth. La Porte received a first-round bye and opens sectional play on Saturday against Mishawaka.
Chip Jones, the voice of the Slicers on 96.7 the Eagle, feels the Slicers have a good chance of winning the sectional title, but it could be a real challenge. He said a victory against Mishawaka will probably mean a championship game against South Bend Adams.
Jones believes that La Porte, Mishawaka, and South Bend Adams are likely the three best teams in the sectionals.
“We’re not getting any breaks. We’ll have to beat the two best probably,” Jones said.
The Slicers finished the regular season at 22-3. They defeated Kankakee Valley on the road Friday and Buchanan at home on Saturday. La Porte plays their first game of the sectional tournament on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. (Central Time).
Michigan City opens the sectionals Wednesday against South Bend Adams at 5 p.m. (Central Time).
