Welch, who played VFW baseball for Woodbury this past summer too, helped PHD — which stands for “pitching, hitting and defense” — earn the tournament championship with a 9-1 win over the Pine Tar Fire in the title game.

PHD is an elite baseball club that plays at the Majors level in 16-and-under baseball. Welch finished the 6-game tournament with 5 RBI, 3 stolen bases, and struck out 7 batters in 5 innings pitched.

“Logan was the offensive star with 3 RBI’s in the championship game,” said PHD Baseball coach Herb Gibson.

In the coming months, Welch and PHD will compete in tournaments in Missouri, Utah, and Arizona.
