WARNER ROBINS — A judgment call went against Loganville at the worst possible time.
The home plate umpire overruled a colleague to make Jake Fromm’s long foul ball a two-run home run.
Fromm’s blast gave host Houston County a 4-0 lead. The Bears went on to win 12-0 in five innings and clinch the state Class AAAAA high school baseball championship.
Loganville’s season ended at 29-9, one victory short of what would have been the program’s third state title in a nine years (2008 and 2012).
LHS coach Jeff Segars argued the call and was ejected.
“I hate that it ended this way for our kids,” Segars said after the game.
Tanner Hall got the win for Houston County (30-9). He pitched a complete game.
Senior Ryan English took the loss for Loganville.
