New to the Lehigh Valley Connie Mack league this year, the Balliet Vikings made quite an impression.

The team finished 13-4-1 and swept Bangor in the Lehigh Valley playoffs to earn a trip to the state tournament. Comprised of players from Central Catholic, however not a school-sanctioned team, the guys played their home games at Sammy Balliet Stadium in Coplay as a way to extend their season and get some additional playing time together as a team.

The experience left Ed Roman, one of the head coaches, impressed with what he saw in the Lehigh Valley.

Once friendly rivals, Coplay and Fullerton have combined their squads this year to take on the always-competitive teams of the Lehigh Valley Connie Mack Baseball League.

Now known as Whitehall, the team is off to a 4-4 start as of early this week with 10 games to play.

Unfortunately, there wasn't a whole lot of time for everyone to get acclimated.

"We only had time for one practice before the season started, but things are starting to come together now," said first-year coach Zachary Winter.
