The Evanston OrangeCats beat Northbrook to win the 10 year-old Division A championship of the Lake Shore Feeder Baseball League. This was the inaugural year for the league. “We were matched with a well-coached Northbrook team, and the boys were definitely up to the challenge. Timely hitting, terrific pitching, and solid defense made the difference in the game in which everyone contributed. I couldn’t have been prouder of how our boys represented Evanston, not only in the tournament, but throughout the season,” remarked Coach Kent Geibel. The OrangeCats finished the season with a record of 17 wins and 7 losses.
