New Boston to host McDonalds Baseball Tournament. The 6 team tournament is slated for Thursday through Saturday.
The Lions are under the leadership of Head Baseball Coach Jordan Knight.
New Boston looks good heading into the tournament having won their district opener Tuesday night in DeKalb. The Lions won that game 4-0 over the Bears. Junior pitcher Tyler Strain threw a 7 inning complete game. He was efficient using just 78 pitches, 58 of which were strikes. Strain struck out 7 and allowed only 4 hits in the shutout. Kyle Atkinson, Brian Reid, and Gabe McCarty each had two hit a piece to lead the Lions at the plate.
