Braeden Drescher enjoyed a solid high school season, pitching for Palmyra this spring.
Over the summer, Drescher has done more than simply build upon that momentum. He has taken it to the next level.
This week, Drescher continued to spearhead Campbelltown’s quest for goals in the Lebanon County American Legion baseball league. On Tuesday, the veteran right-hander was on top of his game, as he hurled Post 831 to a 1-0 triumph over Richland.
Drescher went the distance on a three-hitter, and he set Richland down in order, during the visitor’s second, third, fifth and sixth at-bats. His outing included 78 pitches, and he struck out seven and did not issue a walk.
For Drescher, it was just another outstanding performance, as Campbelltown improved to 5-0 on the season.
With Drescher dealing, and a host of teammates following his pitching lead, C-town figures to be a force that must be dealt with, when the West Division race and Lebanon County American Legion league shakes out next month.
