The Frankford High School baseball team received their championship rings last week during a ceremony held at the Oxford Ave. school. The Pioneers claimed the Public League title after defeating Thomas Edison High School, 5-4, on June 2 at Richie Ashburn Field in South Philadelphia. The triumph was Frankford’s first Public League championship crown since 2008 and 16th in the program’s history.
The Pioneers finished 19-6 overall, outscoring opponents by 118 runs, including four shutouts. They rode an 11-game winning streak throughout the second half of the season en route to their Public League title.
