32nd-seeded Foran baseball looks to keep incredible run going in state semis

(WTNH)–If there’s one high school sport where seeding doesn’t matter, it’s baseball. Look no further than to the Class L playoff bracket for proof.

There’s no better story than the guys from Foran of Milford.

With just 7 wins during the regular season, the Lions earned the very last playoff spot by winning a tiebreaker. Since then, the 32nd-seed has knocked off the #1 seed East Lyme, #17 Berlin and 9th ranked Guilford. “It’s hard to beat someone that never quits so we have a saying that we are going to ignore the scoreboard and play with a certain style”, says Foran head coach Garret Walker, “and when we leave the field win or lose were gonna feel good about what we did.”

On Tuesday, the Lions play the 20th seed Watertown for a spot in the Class L championship game.
First pitch at Dunkin’ Donuts Park on Tuesday is set for 7:30 p.m.

The other Class L semi-final features No. 7 North Haven and 30th-ranked Fitch of Groton.
