Caleb Fisher isn’t old by any stretch of any imagination. But everything is relative, and on the Campbelltown American Legion baseball team, Fisher is one of its older, more seasoned players.
Fisher is growing up right along side the other C-town members, but he’s maturing into a leader, someone that his team can look to and count on. Right now, that’s the kind of development that Campbelltown really needs.
This week, Fisher and Campbelltown continued to make strides in the growth department. In fact, with Fisher showing the way, young Campbelltown is emerging as a serious contender for the Lebanon County American Legion baseball league championship.
On Friday at Fifth Ward Athletic Field, Fisher was in the middle of C-town’s wild and dramatic 10-8, 8-inning comeback victory over Lebanon. His two-run double in the top of the seventh inning was the key hit during a six-run rally that tied the game at eight and sent it to extra frames.
Then, in the top of the eighth, Campbelltown plated the two runs that would prove to be decisive.
Earlier in the week, on Monday at Earl Wenger Memorial Field, Fisher and Campbelltown had scored a 4-1 triumph over Fredericksburg. With the two victories, Campbelltown extended its winning streak to three games and pushed its overall record to 7-5.
Moving forward, if Fisher-led Campbelltown continues to improve at its current rate, they could find themselves making a deep run in the upcoming local playoffs.
