He’s been the table setter all season,” Upper Dublin coach Ed Wall said. “We moved him to the top to get him more at-bats. He’s our best on-base guy. We had him in the three-spot.

JT Breslin made some great catches out there. Horn had a couple good plays at short. Hebling had a huge pick at first on a bunt that saved us. We did the job in the field for him, which was great to see as well.”
