After a dominating performance on the mound, Cashion's Ty Reasnor's was hoping for another chance to throw in the Class A state baseball tournament.
His wish was granted hours after he threw a complete-game one-hitter in a 3-1 victory against Binger-Oney in the quarterfinals Friday at Palmer Field in Dolese Park.
“People are saying there's an injunction filed, so hopefully we can get things delayed and hopefully I'll have another shot,” he said. “But we've got other pitchers on the team that are good also, and give them a shot tomorrow and play behind them to see what we can do.”
