LV Carpenter Cup team opens this week

Wednesday, June 13, 2018 by Peter Car pcar@tnonline.com in Sports

The Lehigh Valley’s 2018 Carpenter Cup baseball team was announced last week as the squad looks to prepare for this year’s edition in Philadelphia.

This will be the 26th year of the franchise, as they look to buck a recent trend of being ousted from the first round in two of the last three years.

Freedom sophomore outfielder Nick Stannard is the lone Bethlehem player on the list, as the team is led by 10 players from Parkland and Emmaus.

LV will open up the tournament on Thursday at Philadelphia’s Franklin D. Roosevelt Park against Suburban One National/Bicentennial at 12:30 p.m.

The next round of action will take place next Monday, before the semifinals and finals move to Citizens Bank Park next Friday and Saturday.

Last year’s team lost to Jersey Shore 4-2 in the opener.
