Old Forge’s Tony Goodall is known on the baseball diamond for his pitching a defense. And while the crafty righty earned another victory on the mound last week, it was his bat that did some talking in a win over Lakeland.
Goodall drove in three runs on a homer and a double as the Blue Devils rallied for a win over the Chiefs to remain on the heels of first-place Valley View.
For his effort, Tony has been named The Sunday Dispatch Old Forge Athlete of the Week for the week May 2-8.
Goodall also picked up a complete-game win against Holy Cross, allowing just one earned run while scattering six hits and two walks. He struck out four Crusaders.
Posters of Tony can be seen at Revello’s Pizza in Old Forge, and Smart Designs and Graphics in Wyoming, sponsors of the Old Forge Athlete of the Week.
