The first game of the Liberation Professional Baseball League was headlined by Johnny Barbato pitching. Johnny was a 6th round selection out of high school by the San Diego Padres. Johnny spent 3 years in the MLB with the Yankees, Pirates, and Tigers over the 2016-2018 seasons. It was really cool to have Johnny pitch in the league on his road to getting back to the MLB The California Dogecoin got off to an early lead with a home run from Derrick Pyles and the Indiana Barn Owls weren’t able to get their offense going enough to put runs on the board. Both teams play each other again at League Stadium on Saturday and Sunday at 6:30pm.
