In the past few years, the Gene Taylor’s baseball team has relied on athletes to do the bulk of their pitching. This summer, players who pitched for their high schools are getting the majority of the innings. Hotchkiss’ Kale Litzelman has logged the most innings for Gene Taylor’s, which continues its season Friday with a doubleheader at Palisade High School.
