Martin Accounting may is the hottest team in the entire Honesdale Little Baseball Association at the moment. The White Sox are all alone atop the Rookie Division standings and currently riding an 8-game winning streak.
Martin Accounting is off to a blistering start in Honesdale Little Baseball Association action this spring.
Under the direction of coaches Todd Stephens & Todd Kinzinger, the White Sox have yet to suffer a Rookie Division defeat.
To date, Martin Accounting has won eight straight games and sits all alone in first place.
“This is one of the best teams I’ve ever coached,” Stephens told TWI Sports. “They’ve improved so much since the start of the season. They’re working really hard in practice and that’s showing up when it comes time to play.”
Next up for the White Sox is a Friday night battle with the Twins. The last time these two teams met, Martin Accounting barely escaped with a 9-8 win.
“That should be a really good game,” Coach Stephens said. “We’re definitely looking forward to it.”
This HLBA Rookie Division contest will get underway at 6:00 p.m. on the Fred Reisch Memorial diamond.
