In a week filled with standout performances on the diamond, one player stood head and shoulders above the rest, showcasing not only skill but sheer dominance on the mound. This week’s recipient of the prestigious Baseball Player of the Week honor, presented by Visit Lake Charles, goes to none other than Logan Sorrel from The Dunham School.

Sorrel’s performance in a showdown against the formidable Mandeville team, a Class 5A powerhouse, was nothing short of spectacular. Facing off against tough competition, Sorrel didn’t just deliver; he left an indelible mark on the game with a display of pitching prowess rarely seen at the high school level.

In a commanding outing, Sorrel threw a five-inning complete game no-hitter, leading the Tigers to a resounding 12-0 shutout victory. It wasn’t just the absence of hits that defined Sorrel’s outing but the manner in which he controlled every aspect of the game from start to finish.

Throughout his five innings of work, Sorrel demonstrated masterful command, allowing no hits, no runs, and issuing only one walk. His efficiency on the mound was equally impressive, needing just 69 pitches to navigate through a potent Mandeville lineup.

What truly set Sorrel apart was his ability to mix pitches effectively, keeping hitters off balance and guessing at every turn. With a fastball touching 88 miles per hour, complemented by a sharp slider and a changeup with deceptive fade, Sorrel had Mandeville’s batters dancing to his tune all game long.

Beyond the strikeouts, Sorrel induced weak contact and ground balls, showcasing not just raw power but finesse and control—a testament to his all-around skill as a pitcher.
