Salina Legion Baseball Ready for 2018 Season

Pat StrathmanJune 1, 2018

School may be out for summer, but baseball continues on.

The Salina Falcons and Hawks are ready for the 2018 season to begin this weekend. The ‘A’ Hawks start Friday with a home doubleheader against Newton while the ‘AAA’ Falcons head to east for the Ottawa Tournament.

Five players return for the Falcons. Salina South’s Brady McAfee was second on the team last year with 24 RBI on 19 hits. He also accumulated the second-most doubles with six.

Salina South has three others back in Seth Catania, Layne Haddock and Cade Sterrett. Haddock was third on the squad with 26 runs scored while swiping a team-high 12 bags. Catania recorded 22 hits with a .262 batting average in 31 games.

Ell-Saline’s Richard Davis is also back after receiving action in six games a season ago. The Falcons are coached by Luke Curry and the Hawks are led by Dalton Dooley.
