SO LET’S START WITH SOME GOOD LOCAL NEWS!!

Check this story out.  It’s from right here in Marquette County.  Thanks to Jeff Adriano for getting it to us.

At the Ishpeming Little League Complex last night, 15 year old Jordan LaChappell of the Ishpeming Senior Little League All Stars came to the park thinking he would be taking his customary position at third base. When he arrived he was told by his coaches that he would be on the mound for the team to start the game since they didn’t have any other pitchers left to throw after a long tournament. Not a problem, right?

Wrong.

He hadn’t pitched all year and in fact hadn’t pitched since he was 12 years old! Unfazed, he not only went out and pitched a complete game for Ishpeming, he shut out the visiting Baraga County All Stars. LaChappell and his Ishpeming teammates left their home field for the last time this season with a 5 inning mercy shortened 10-0 victory to take the District 11 Senior Little League. LaChappell completed the game of his young life by also leading his team with a 3-3 night, 2 doubles including 2 RBIs; and he scored the final run to end the game.

Ishpeming pounded out 10 hits total; including 2 hits by Brandon O’Brien and Jacob Burton; Baraga managed only 4 hits off LaChappell; with two coming off the bat of Josh Turunen. Ishpeming will move on to sectional play this Saturday to face the winner of District 10.
