Logan, Fry, Junior Class, Youth, and Solid Pitching Staff Boost Panthers on the Diamond

Snider has made it to the sectional championship two years in a row. Last year they went 19-9. This year’s Panthers bring back some quality athletes, particularly in their junior class.

Brandon Logan and Landen Fry have been varsity starters since their freshman year. Those two have hit over .400 two years in a row. Last year, Fry and Logan were the Panthers’ leading run-producers. Logan is a Vanderbilt commit. He patrols center field. He has only committed three errors in his high school career. Fry is an IU commit. He pitches and plays shortstop. He pitched 48 innings and led Snider with 51 strikeouts.

Other key Panther juniors include Trevor Jarvis, Noah Hess, and Cam Davis. Jarvis often played at second base as a sophomore and even played some in right field. He did not commit an error all season. Snider plans to use him as a utility infielder. They plan to do the same with Davis who played five games late last season and gave the team some solid defense. Hess threw 26 strikeouts on the mound and posted a 3.78 ERA. He also hit .267 in 18 plate appearances as a sophomore after having only one plate appearance as a freshman.

Not surprisingly, Hess and Fry will be key components in Snider’s pitching staff. They also plan to use fellow junior Ethan Welch as a starter. Welch played for both the JV and varsity teams. Logan could be used out of the bullpen. Seniors Parker Swanson and Amare Bohde combined to throw 11 innings last year. Freshman Brady Keck could also be relied on.

Another freshman to watch for is Isaiah Snavely. He’s pushing for a starting job in the infield. As of Thursday, Prep Baseball Indiana has Snavely listed as the 10th best freshman in the state.

It’s also worth noting that Jack Mohrman and David Crothers are battling for a job as starting catcher. Those two played a combined 10 games last year. They seem to both be performing well in practice.

Snider’s opener is normally before spring break. This year they open the season against North Side on Tuesday, April 9th. That’s the first of five straight games the Panthers play during that week. They’ll cap off the week with a Saturday doubleheader against Northrop.
