Lakeview Seniors to lean on experience
The Bank of the Valley Lakeview Senior American Legion baseball team brings back a strong core from last year and hopes that this senior experience will give them a leg up on the competition.
Last summer, the Lakeview seniors finished the season 6-17 due in large part to several injuries. From players dealing with broken bones to torn hamstrings and elbow injuries, it was difficult for the squad to get in a groove.
Head coach Brach Johnson said this year the team is healthy and he is optimistic about the season.
“We’re excited about the season,” he said. “We’re going have 12 or 13 kids out. Of those, most of them have a lot of baseball experience. From last year coming back, I think nine of them played for me last year as juniors or seniors. That’s a lot of experience coming back.”
