I have seen a fair amount of impressive performances by high school sports teams over the decade-plus that I have been covering scholastic sports in the Eastern Pennsylvania region.
But very few things come close to what I witnessed last week in the EPC baseball playoffs.
The Liberty Hurricanes defeated three very solid programs in the tournament–ALL BY MERCY RULE–to sweep the three-game playoff tournament and earn the number one seed for the District XI 6A playoffs.
They truly played well in all aspects of the game: hitting – both in the approach and the execution up-and-down the entire lineup – defense, and of course, tremendous pitching. There were really no weaknesses in the Canes’ attack last week.
Head Coach Andy Pitsilos and members of his team were on ATVN SportsTalk earlier this season to talk about their success last year and how that has helped them focus on bigger and better accomplishments coming up this spring.
Here’s a clip of their interviews…
