American Legion roundup
The Lansing Reds - a team composed of Lansing High junior varsity baseball players and incoming LHS freshmen - took on Tonganoxie's varsity American Legion team Tuesday night at the Leavenworth County Fairgrounds.
Tonganoxie swept the twinbill, 10-2 and 9-1, but Lansing coach Dustin Myers said he saw encouraging signs that his young team is getting better. Specifically, the Reds put a lot of good innings together against Tonganoxie, as well as last weekend at the Midwest's Best Tournament in Belton, Mo., all were strong. One team was made up of players from Class 5A state champion Aquinas and Class 4A champ Bishop Ward.
"Playing these older teams and these elite teams, I like seeing them start out real well and bringing a lot of intensity," Myers said. "We've just got to get over that one bad inning, but it'll come."
The Reds play at 6 p.m. today against Basehor at LHS.
CUBS FALL TO LIONS
The Lansing Cubs' quest for their first victory of the summer continues thanks to the Easton Lions.
The Lions swept the Cubs, 15-8 and 12-11, on Thursday night at LHS.
Logan Ryan hit an inside-the-park home run in game one. The Cubs now are 0-4.
