With the high school baseball season in the books, we took a look at the players who had the greatest impact on their teams. Here is the Times-Mail all-area team for players from Bedford North Lawrence, Orleans and Mitchell. The list is in alphabetical order:
Kaedyn Bennett, Bedford North Lawrence
Bennett, a junior first baseman/third baseman, batted .321 with 11 RBIs, 11 runs and drew 12 walks while being hit by pitch eight times to post a team-leading .459 on-base percentage.
Grant Dalton, Bedford North Lawrence
BNL senior Grant Dalton (14) taps helmets with Walker Ward (23) to celebrate Dalton's home run on Senior Day.
The senior center fielder bounced back from a slow start, induced by a preseason hand injury, to hit .309 with five doubles, a team-best three triples, a home run and 12 RBIs. Dalton also produced 17 runs and drew 15 walks out of the leadoff spot, while committing a mere one error in the outfield.
Dalton was at his best when it mattered most as he went 4 for 7 in two sectional games. He nailed a runner at third in the Stars' 5-2 semifinal win over Seymour, and was 3 for 3 against New Albany ace Tucker Biven, including a roped double, in a 4-0 setback in the title tilt. Dalton will next play at Southeastern Illinois College.
Cal Gates, Bedford North Lawrence
Bedford North Lawrence's Cal Gates (21) celebrates BNL's first run during the sectional semi-final game with Seymour on Saturday, May 28, 2022 at Jennings County.
The freshman right-fielder hit .323 with six doubles and 11 RBIs and a .423 OBP. He also led the team in runs with 22 and stolen bases with 11. Gates also led the outfield with seven assists and had only two errors in 48 total chances in right.
Kline Woodward, Bedford North Lawrence
BNL sophomore right-hander Kline Woodward fires a pitch to the plate against Terre Haute South Tuesday night.
Woodward led the Stars in hitting with a .341 average and in doubles with eight while adding a triple and a home run, driving in 11 runs and scoring 17. The sophomore also went 2-1 on the mound with a 2.51 earned-run average.
