Southern Senior Baseball Wins State Title!

Southern's Seniors Baseball All-Stars won the Michigan state title Sunday with an exciting 4-3 victory in nine innings. They defeated Grosse Pointe/Harper Woods today when Connor Goulet, Dane Addington, and Henry Breems put together a great nine-inning pitching performance with Breems getting the win.

In the bottom of the ninth inning inning, Nolan Heerema singled and stole second base, bringing up EJ Jung. EJ hit a 375-foot shot that was foul by a mere three inches. He then singled in the winning run on the next pitch for an exciting win.

Now it's on to Peru, Illinois, for the eight team regional. The winner advances to the World Series in Bangor, Maine. Good luck to the Seniors baseball team!
