Eli pitched a no-hitter today for the 15u Lehigh Valley Baseball Academy!
The opposing team had very few base runners during the game and Eli was in control as he struck out one batter after the other. On two occasions, he walked a couple batters in an inning but put the hammer down and pitched out of trouble. He was in command of his pitches all day and kept his focus throughout the game. Watching a 15u player throw a no-hitter was a complete joy to witness and photograph!
This was the first no-hitter that Eli pitched in his young career. The LVBA team scored one run on a wild pitch as Joey DePerno scored from third base on a heads-up play to cap off Eli’s no-hitter with a victory.
Here are a series of photos from the first inning of Eli’s no-hitter. It was a day to remember and I was glad to photograph the game as it unfolded. I always say that each game has a unique story and I see my job as trying to tell that story through the photographs I capture. Today Eli made it very easy to tell this game’s story. Awesome game Eli and congratulations on your no-hitter!
