By Nick Freimuth Photo by Penny Writt Rotary won the league championship for the Sturgeon Bay Cal Ripken Baseball League this year. The final games were held Monday night and Rotary held on to their lead in the league. Rotary put an exclamation point on their season by winning their season finale 15-7 over the Lions. Blayre Writt was the games winning pitcher and if there was a league MVP he would have likely taken the crown. Writt hit eight home runs including two grand slams and pitched a three inning perfect game during the season. Nick Beck and Sam Zirbel each had three hits in the win. Writt, Zack Krueger and Derian Muraski all had two hits for Rotary. The Lions were led by Jerik Valley (three hits), Braden Evers (home run), Vance DeKeyser (two hits).
Red Room eased past Co-op 16-3 to cap a second place finish in the league. Isaac Marsh and Calvin Richard combined for the victory on the mound. Jack Henry had three hits, Brady Kita added two including a home run and Calvin Richard added two hits in the win. The Co-op saw Gage Geisel and Chase Haberli lead the way with two hits apiece.
Nicolet Bank shutout the third place finishing Kiwanis 4-0. Tyler Neinas and Danny Lodl pitched extremely well to earn the shutout victory. Neinas and Lodl each had two hits to aid their own causes on the hill.
