Zach Heffner (Daniel Boone)
The Blazers are out to an early 4-1 start, led in large part by timely hitting and great pitching. Heffner, a senior who is committed to IUP, tossed a complete game no hitter against Red Lion on April 1st. Heffner also struck out 10 during his impressive outing.
David Gerhart (Conrad Weiser)
The Scouts have gotten off to a perfect start. They currently sit at 4-0 and are one of just two unbeaten teams in Berks County (Twin Valley). David Gerhart has been a major spark for Weiser, both on the mound and at the plate. Gerhart struck out 7 over 6 and 2/3 innings to beat a heavily favored Mifflin team last Monday. How did the senior follow up that performance? Gerhart drove in all four of the Scouts runs on Saturday in a win over Muhlenberg.
Eric Hartranft (Tulpehocken)
The Hartranft’s are a big reason why the Trojans sit atop the Berks III standings. Eric Hartranft is currently 2-0 on the mound and has struck out 23 batters. In addition to his dominance when toeing the rubber, Hartranft has also been a force at the plate. On the young season, Eric has a grand slam home run and 9 RBI.
