Howe Beats Tigers In Bi-District Baseball Tuesday

By Perry Morris

Leonard lost their last game of the season Tuesday by a 12-6 score to Howe. This was for the Bi-District championship. Mistakes were costly for the Tigers as they committed 9 errors. It was a bad day all around as it seemed that both teams were trying to give the game away.

The Tigers had a good year anyway, and were due to play a bad game as they have been playing heads-up ball all year or they wouldnt have gone as far as they have. They won their district championship of the year, and the first baseball championship in many years.

Billy Steele went all the way on the mound but got poor support in the first 5 innings as Howe scored 7 unearned runs. Then Steele weakened in the sixth after 2 were out and gave up 4 runs on three hits and 2 walks. David Campbell led Leonard hitters as he collected 2 of their 5 hits.
