The Wabash 15 and 16- year-old all-star team was taking on Peru in a best of three series for the district title this weekend. After a convincing 10-0 win on the back of pitcher Nate Hembree Friday, Wabash was primed to take the title Saturday. With pitcher Remington Monce throwing bullets, Wabash cruised to an 11-0 win for the title.
Being the visitors on the scoreboard, Wabash wasted no time getting Monce a lead, scoring two runs in the first. With Kody Fuller calling the pitches, Monce was untouchable as he scattered just two hits in the shutout.
Wabash would go on to score two runs in the third, one in the fourth, one in the fifth, one in the sixth and four in the seventh to seal the deal.
Members of the team are Dustin Curless, Austin Hostetler, Remington Monce, Jordan Holley, Nate Hembree, Kody Fuller, Ben Dillon, Julian Zupata, Darren Benson, Sam Hall, Jakob Hayes, Zach Newman, and Mason Hovey.
Coaches for the team are Rick Zupata, Aaron Burton, and Jim Olinger.
