Baseball: Woodbury’s Welch helps PHD club to win at Scout Stop Classic

Woodbury sophomore Logan Welch recently helped his club team, PHD Baseball, win the inaugural ScoutStop Labor Day Classic baseball tournament, held from Aug. 30 to Sept. 2, at the University of Minnesota’s Siebert Field.

Woodbury’s Logan Welch isn’t taking his summer for granted.

A sophomore at Woodbury High School, Welch recently helped his club team, PHD Baseball, win the inaugural ScoutStop Labor Day Classic baseball tournament, held from Aug. 30 to Sept. 2, at the University of Minnesota’s Siebert Field.

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.
