Lakeside Recovery Baseball Club earns third in American Legion World Series

The Lakeside Recovery Baseball Club only lost two games in the American Legion World Series in Shelby, N.C., both to the same pitcher. Genetically, that is.

Brooklawn’s twin phenoms Casey and Cody Brown held Lakeside in check in the two games, limiting the Bellevue team to two runs in their first meeting Aug. 19, and only three runs in the Aug. 21 semifinal game. Both games were one-run affairs.

“We ran into a tough left-hander, and they got the big hit when they needed it with two outs,” Lakeside head coach Rob Reese said. “We got our chances in the eighth inning and we only got one out of it. There’s not much room for error when you get to that level. You have to take advantage of your opportunities and we had a couple shots, but we just didn’t get it that day.”
