Lessons Learned in Little League

The Walker Baseball team has a winning record with a current record of ten wins and nine losses. At the beginning of the season, two pitchers threw a no-hitter. A no-hitter is when the pitcher doesn’t allow a single hit but could walk at least one or more batters. Jackson Sadler (Senior) and Niall Todd (Sophomore) were the pitchers to accomplish this goal. Sadler pitched a dominant game against Pinecrest with only having to throw 64 pitches. In those pitches, he threw 13 strikeouts. At the time, the Wolverines were 2-1. As any baseball player knows, this is a moment he will remember forever. He dealt with many injuries and early struggles early last season before the pandemic broke loose. When asked about how it felt to throw a no-hitter, Sadler said, “It was really gratifying, and it felt good to come back.” Sadler has had a love for baseball since he was six years old, playing travel ball and making some of his favorite memories as a kid. He plans on taking his skills to Rhodes College, where he will pitch and play outfield. When asked about college baseball, he said, “ I am definitely very excited to play college ball and to further my skills along with having great academics.” The team has been playing great all season, and he believes they have a good shot at the playoffs.
