Baseball: LebCo Little Leaguers Begin Path to Williamsport

In 2023, the entire county rallied around the Northern Lebanon Little League team as they finished 3rd in Pennsylvania. Over the weekend, the next wave of 12u Little Leaguers took the field in their quest to qualify for Williamsport. Young men representing Northern Lebanon and ELCO began pool play of the District 6 Tournament at Camp Hill.

We were able to catch up with representatives from Northern Lebanon Little League to find out how the first two games went and what it means going forward.

Northern Lebanon Results

Game 1 – Friday, June 28th

Northern Lebanon 10, East Penn 3

The game got off to a slow start against a talented, well-coached squad from East Penn. Nolan Anspach was on the hill to start the game, pitching two scoreless innings while striking out six. That was enough to give NL the time needed for the bats to come alive. Luke Copenhaver joined Nolan Anspach to lead the offensive effort, as both had a multi-hit, multi-RBI evening. Greyson McQuaide added a two-run home run as NL proved too much for East Penn. Things were made especially difficult by Shelbie Fry, who came on in relief and pitched four innings, striking out four while giving up three runs.

Game 2- Saturday, June 29th

Northern Lebanon 10, Hershey 0 [F/4]

Taven Zang and Parker Wright combined to no-hit Hershey, while the bats got going early to put the game out of reach. Zang pitched the first two innings, while Wright finished off the game. At the plate, Zang helped his cause with two hits. Issac Good was credited with three RBI in the winning effort, including a monster shot over the outfield fence that provided a major highlight as part of the convincing win over Hershey.



What’s next?

Northern Lebanon will now play Camp Hill on Monday, July 1st, to finish out pool play before the single-elimination games begin on Tuesday. If all goes well, LebCo could again have a representative at the Section 4 Championship Tournament, which is set to begin on July 14th in Indiana, PA. Last year’s team walked away as the Section 4 Champs, giving them a spot at the State Tournament.

It is worth noting that while most of this year’s roster is new to the 12u level, Nolan and Jacob Anspach have some experience, having been part of last year’s team.

We wish Northern Lebanon and ELCO all the best as they continue competing in the District 6 Tournament.
