  • A wonderful walk-off

    A game-winning home run is always special. When you hit one on the last pitch of the game, it is even better.
    That is what Tyler Ellis did last week against Walton-Verona.
    The senior came to bat on Thursday night in the bottom of the fifth inning with his team holding a 10-2 lead and Jarrod Ball on first. With one swing of the bat Ellis sent his teammates and those in attendance home happy. Ellis hit a drive over the fence in straight away centerfield for the walk-off homer and the 12-2 win.
