GOOD BYE BOYS
Four Wildcats ended their legion baseball careers this summer due to their age. We thank the boys for their efforts. It was fun watching them play. We wish them all the best in their future.
#26 ADAM BADINGER
Adam was the Wildcats primary second baseman. While he hit .256, he hit 'em when it counted being a tri-leader of RBIs. The Fleetwood grad will continue his education at Penn State Berks this fall.
#17 TIM FREY
Tim was the mainstay of the Wildcat pitching staff. He lead the staff in strike outs and was second in ERA. He was a member of the 2018 league all star team. Tim will be attending Penn Tech in September.
#3 JEREMIAH JARBO
#3's main claim to fame was his bat - and what a bat! He led the Wildcats in hitting with a .457 average, an OBP of .536, a slugging % of .696 and an OBP of 1.231 way ahead of everyone else. Jeremiah was also elected to the 2017 Schuylkill-Berks All Star team. In September, Jeremiah will return to Townsend University.
#13 MASON RIEGEL
Mason was the Wildcats' 10th man. He was the guy they turned to when they needed a third baseman or an outfielder or a pitcher. He would step up and get it done. His batting average wasn't spectacular, but he could be counted on to lay down a bunt or advance a runner. Mason has opted to forgo more education, entering the work force with his father as a contractor.
