VANDALIA — Butler Boys Baseball had many spectators on Friday night as they brought in a big win on Alumni Night. Butler Baseball invited back Alumni from near and far to be recognized at the Aviator game against Xenia. Most Notably, 89 year old Alumni Dick Scherer from the class of 1946 threw out the first pitch for the Aviators- getting them off to a great start.
“It was a GWOC win for us as Quinton, Cody and Braedon all pitched well as they limited Xenia to only two hits and three freebies,” says coach Trent Dues.
The Aviators topped the Buccaneers 8-0 at home as the Aviators continued their hot-streak with seven hits on the evening.
Senior Jack Mitchell and junior Karter Peck each had two hits, while Carson Clark and Cam Miller each had two RBI. Jake DeMoss and Carson Clark each hits triples, and Peck added a double.
“Our defense aided them by playing an errorless game. Offensively, we put the ball in play enough to make things happen,” says Dues.
The Aviators also honored their Webmaster, Ryan Wallace. The combination of spectator energy and honorary guests made for a special night at Butler High School. The Aviators are in action on Monday at Tipp City High School.
