The Mansfield/Galion Legion baseball team is off to another good start this season, winning 13 of their 17 contests so far this summer. Which is why head coach Jerry Czernewski says the team is "pretty tough in all aspects of the game right."

Czernewski says that the squads pitching has been strong and their hitting always seem to come through and score runs. That was the case the last time his team faced Prospect (19-7-2) on the road earlier this month on June 11, when Czernewski says the game was tight until the 9th when the teams bats came alive. 

In the rematch between the squads Tuesday night at Madison High School, Mansfield/Galion ace Cal Von Stein, who was a freshman for the Northern Ohio baseball team this last season and played his high school ball at Shelby, had a smooth start to the game but would get touched early on. Von Stein said his gameplan was to get ahead of batters with the fast ball then mix it up, while forcing opposing batters to hit the ball to the teams strong defense.

Von Stein would essentially retire 4 batters in the top of the 1st, as a base runner reached first on an error, but the 2nd and 3rd would be rocky. Prospect would score 3 runs in the 3rd and add another in the 4th on 5 hits, while a normally solid Mansfield/Galion defense committed a pair of errors.

The team would ralley however, behind a grand slam from Colonel Crawford's Austin Adams to tie the game at 7 apiece and force extra innings. And that's how the game would end with darkness rolling in, with the teams evened up at 7-7.

Mansfield/Galion will next be in action on Thursday night for a home game against Ashland at Madison High School.
