The Heart of The Matter – Last Call @ Hartland

By: Scott Burnstein, June 15, 2016, 4:34 pm
Hartland is making a push for a repeat D1 state title on the baseball diamond. The Eagles beat Rochester 6-0 in Tuesday’s quarterfinals. Here are SIX Hartland seniors to watch for in the final four this weekend:
John Baker (P) – Throws lightning bolts, lights-out talent toeing the slab
Nate Lohmeier (P) – “Nasty Nate” is a dynamite No. 2 hurler, would be an ace on almost any other high school club in the state
Gary Turnbull (IB-P)– Just a total WORKHORSE!! Emotional sparkplug, leader in the dugout
Thomas Rivet (OF-P) – Simply RIVETING!!, running roughshod over the comp
Alex Vydick (C) – The ‘A’ is for AWESOME, blood-sweat-and-tears type
Richard Bortle (OF) – If you could bottle what Bortle brings to the table for this Eagles squad and sell it, you’d be very, very rich!!!
