Five from Morris, three from Minooka lead All-Area baseball team
Selecting an all-area team is not an easy task. Some people like to look at raw numbers, but they don’t tell the whole story. Are big offensive numbers racked up against a schedule not laden with quality pitchers the same as numbers that don’t look as impressive, but were amassed against some of the best pitching around? Similarly, a pitcher with a gaudy number of wins might have faced the oppositions’ second or third-best pitchers, allowing for his offense to score more runs in his support.
