(La Porte, IN) - The La Porte High School baseball team opens sectional play this week, with the Slicers having finished the regular season 17- 9.
Again, hitting was an issue in the final regular season game Friday when the Slicers defeated Kankakee Valley at home 1-0. Our very own Voice of the Slicers, Chip Jones, said the Slicers definitely have a chance to win the sectionals but need to get their bats going, especially with men on base.
The Slicers open the Plymouth sectionals Wednesday against South Bend Adams. South Bend Adams defeated La Porte 2-0 earlier this season.
Jones said R.J. Anglin, who’s the ace of the Slicers pitching staff with a fastball approaching 90 miles per hour, will likely start the opening game of the post season.
“Hitting is contagious. If we can get one guy to maybe get a big hit, this team looks like it’s just waiting to explode,” he said.
La Porte finished third in the Duneland Conference this year.
