It’s not how hard you hit it. Or how far you hit it.
It’s where you hit it. And most importantly, when you hit it.
Trevor Binner took the concept of timely hitting to the next level.
Binner proved to be a key offensive cog during Campbelltown’s extended run in the Region Four American Legion baseball tournament at Ephrata’s War Memorial Field this week. It seemed every time C-town needed a key hit, the veteran Binner delivered.
During its three regional games this week, Binner came through with first-inning RBI hits in all of them.
On Sunday, during a 9-3 victory over Waynesboro, Binner smashed a two-run triple that staked Campbelltown to an early 2-0 lead. On Monday, his long run-scoring double to center field propelled C-town to a 1-0 first-inning advantage, and ultimately to a 5-2 triumph over Paxton.
Binner and Campbelltown, the Lebanon County American Legion League champions, concluded their summer campaign with an overall mark of 21-4.
