Gettysburg rallies to break big baseball drought
(Teddy Feinberg/GameTimePA.com) It had been a long time since Gettysburg won a division title in baseball.
But with Wednesday’s 5-4 win over West York, the Warriors claimed the YAIAA Division II title — their first since winning the Blue Mountain League in 1981.
"This was our top goal coming into the season," Gettysburg coach Ryan Brady said of winning the division.
"There’s been a lot of bumps in the road to get here.
But these kids never dropped their heads."
Gettysburg (12-6, 10-4) started the season by winning its first eight games and sat as high as fifth in the District 3 Class 5A power rankings.
Thursday will not be the Warriors’ final game of the season, regardless.
It certainly wasn’t easy.
"These guys have played together for so long and not just with this team," Brady said.
"They’ve played countless games together in travel ball and legion ball, too.
