Pella’s baseball team is the last remaining summer sports squad in the Tulip City, and they are gearing up for what they hope is a deep postseason run.

Senior Landon Vander Leest tells KNIA/KRLS Sports he’s excited about what the young players on the team can do not only this season, but beyond.

“I think they can go nowhere but up,” he says. “We’ve had a lot of good senior leadership in our past too…we’re just trying to help them grow.”

Pella travels to Alleman to take on Bondurant-Farrar in the Class 3A district playoff opener on Friday at 5 p.m. Andrew Swadner is calling the game live on 92.1 KRLS, with pregame at 4:45 p.m.
