George Washington baseball enters the season as Public League defending champions for the first time in almost 20 years. The Eagles bring back a talented quartet tasked with leading an otherwise young group.
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.
Sweltering temperatures and extreme humidity postponed last week’s highly anticipated Public League baseball championship game, forcing the players of Frankford and Thomas Edison high schools to sideline their enthusiasm one more day.
