KISSIMMEE, Fla. — The Lebanon baseball team wrapped up its slate of games with a 5-3 win over Fenwick (Ill.) on Tuesday at ESPN Disney Wide World of Sports, finishing its trip 3-1.

The Yellowjackets rallied from a 7-0 defeat in its first game to Charlotte Country Day (N.C.) to defeat the Marion’s 14-4 in five innings on Sunday and to beat Chicago University Lab 4-1 on Monday.

“For the kids it is something they are never going to forget,” Lebanon head coach Dustin Young said. “It’s great weather and it is a great facility and it is an experience that a lot of kids don’t get to do in their lifetime, let alone get to come play baseball while they’re doing it … the experience speaks for itself.”

On the field, Young said it is interesting to have an opportunity to play competition the team normally wouldn’t face. Lebanon faced a team from North Carolina and two teams from Illinois during their stay.
