Kyle Bogdanovich may or may not be the best hitter in the Lebanon County American Legion baseball league. What makes that a matter of conjecture is the fact that the local summer circuit is home to some pretty good batters.
But Bogdanovich was the best hitter in the county legion league when it mattered the most – during the postseason. He’s got the trophy to prove that.
On Wednesday night at Palmyra High School, K-Bog’s bat was the big stick in Myerstown’s championship-clinching 4-2 triumph over Campbelltown, in the final game of the Lebanon County American Legion League’s double-elimination playoffs. After the hostilities had been settled, K. Bogdanovich was recognized as the postseason’s top batter, with the Jack Bicher Outstanding Hitter award.
With Myerstown trailing Campbelltown 2-0 in the top of the fifth inning and in desperate need of a spark, K. Bogdanovich provided one. His two-run single in the frame knotted the score.
One of Myerstown’s quiet emotional leaders, K. Bogdanovich, who also played a huge role in M-town’s local title last season, has seemingly been on fire at the plate since the county legion league’s postseason got underway.
