Leesburg Lightning wins two against FCSL baseball’s Winter Garden

4 min read

LEESBURG — The Leesburg Lightning had a solid opening week as it settled into the two-month grind that makes up a Florida Collegiate Summer League season.

The Lightning compiled a 4-3 mark in their first week with a pair of wins against the Winter Garden Squeeze — Leesburg’s 33rd win in 45 games between the two teams — along with victories against Sanford and Winter Park.

Leesburg begins its second week of the season Tuesday against the Seminole County Snappers — weather permitting, of course — at Pat Thomas Stadium-Buddy Lowe Field. Monday’s game against the Snappers in Sanford was canceled due to inclement weather.

That game will be made up at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Sanford Memorial Stadium. 

The Lightning began the week in a second-place tie with DeLand, 1 1/2 games behind Sanford.
