In baseball circles, it’s known as a ‘no-no’. But for Jordan Nichols and the Fredericksburg American Legion baseball team, it was a Yes!, Yes!, Yes!.
Nichols is one of the premiere pitchers in the local summer baseball circuit. But this week, he was down right dominant – and dare we say, un-hittable.
On Wednesday evening at Earl Wenger Memorial Field in Fredericksburg, Nichols’ overpowering stuff was on full display. The veteran southpaw twirled a masterful no-hit shutout, during F-burg’s 1-0 triumph over Campbelltown.
Actually, Nichols’ performance was just another excellent outing from Fredericksburg’s pitching staff. Through eight games this season, F-burg pitchers have surrendered a total of seven runs.
Nichols’ outing also kept his side’s record unblemished, at 8-0. Not only is Fredericksburg the front-runner in this summer’s Lebanon County American Legion League race, it now appears to be the favorite to claim the circuit’s championship.
And one would be hard-pressed to identify a more important reason than Nichols.
