As the umpire watches to make sure the baseball clears the wall for a home run Friday, Gene Taylor’s infielder Tanner Huskey heads to first base. The baseball left the park, a solo home run for Huskey in a 13-3 victory for Gene Taylor’s in the first game of a doubleheader.

The home stretch

Gene Taylor’s splits DH in first home games of Legion season

Finally getting to play at home came with mixed results for the Gene Taylor’s American Legion baseball team Friday: a 13-3 win and a 9-4 loss in a Legion A Elite League doubleheader against the Greeley Gojos.
First, Gene Taylor’s got a win it desperately needed after having its psyche bruised in a tough California tournament.
It ended a stretch of 21 road games to start the season by going 1-3 in the USA Premier Baseball Firecracker Classic, but that brought Gene Taylor’s home, where it responded by battering Greeley with 13 hits in the opener.
