Knights bow out with 14-3 loss to LQPV Eagles

The RTR baseball boys saw their successful season come to a quick end as they would fall to the LQPV Eagles last Thursday in Yankee Stadium. No, it was not the Yankee Stadium we think of when we think of pro baseball. This ball park was in Milroy where the Milroy Yankees play their games. We do have to realize that many of these Knights have played in some special places this school year.
The Eagles started the scoring in their first inning by scoring four runs. Jared Baartman, the Knights pitcher, had trouble finding home plate in this inning as three consecutive walks all scored.
