Lions prepare for the baseball season

By Matthew Stefanski


Spring is here at last and the crack of the bat can be heard at the Victory Christian Academy (VCA) batting cage. The Lions are getting ready to roar and to let loose on the other teams in the South Shore Christian Conference (SSCC) this season.

With a strong starting lineup consisting of Calvin Reisigner, Peter Guess, Samuel Brown and Evan Longhi, the Lions will be a challenge for any pitcher. Team captains for the season are Calvin Reisinger and Samuel Brown.

“This team is built from guys who play because they love baseball. It’s a privilege to play with them and I’m stoked for the rest of the season,” said captain Samuel Brown.

The Lions exude confidence in everything they do, from doing drills to running laps. The VCA Lions are pre-paring to come out hard this season. “It’s about winning, not for us, but for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” commented Brown.

The Lions Head Coach Ryan Bratcher is confident his Lions will get the job done. “This is a team of solid guys that love baseball and will get the job done,” stated Bratcher.

Pitcher senior Evan Longhi with captain Samuel Brown behind the plate, Jon Walker at third, Calvin Reisigner at shortstop, Evan Wilson at second, and Peter guess at first, comprise the infield. Outfielders Josh Smith, Mack Price and Colin Wilson will start in left, center and right fields, respectively.

The VCA Lions are waiting for another chance to show what they’re made of. The SSCC beware, the Lions are here!
