Hungry veterans lead Lakeside Recovery’s fast start

June 10, 2014

It’s not as though the Lakeside Recovery Senior American Legion baseball team had a poor 2013 season, but there wasn’t the same chemistry that carried the squad to the World Series in 2012.

Lakeside Recovery finished with a 10-2 record in Northwest League games last season, but was eliminated at the state tournament in July. The reason, longtime head coach Rob Reese said, is there weren’t enough leaders on a relatively inexperienced roster.

“We lost a lot of guys off the World Series team,” Reese said. “We had a few guys back, but they weren’t too vocal. And now they’ve grown up a little bit.”
