Connor Bawiec was the best player in the Lebanon County American Legion Baseball League last season. And he’s back this season.
So does that mean Bawiec is the best player in the Lebanon County American Legion Baseball League this summer? We’ll allow you to draw your own conclusions.
Using his arm and bat, Bawiec helped Myerstown to a 3-1 week. After dropping a 5-0 decision to Fredericksburg on Sunday, Bawiec helped the reigning league champions to consecutive wins over Fifth Ward, Richland and Richland again.
In Friday’s 9-0 win at Richland’s Lyle Krall Field, Bawiec collected three hits – a double and two singles. On Tuesday, during a 3-2 11-inning shading of Fifth Ward, Bawiec pitched well over the first ten innings, striking out ten and refusing to issue a free pass, but did not figure in the decision.
Bawiec, a 2014 graduate of Cedar Crest, was the driving force behind Myerstown winning last season’s league championship. During this past school year, Bawiec toiled for the Elmira College baseball team in New York.
