The 2019 Elkhart Elks baseball team had a successful season, making the playoffs for the 37th time in the past 42 years. The Elks unfortunately lost in the Bi-District round, but the team has continued to generate some good news post-season. Several of the Elks received All-District honors for District 20 AAA, including several superlatives. Sophomore Bryson Adair was selected as the Most Valuable Player of the District. Senior Brady Johnson was selected as the District’s Pitcher of the Year. Senior Landry Mays was selected as Co-Offensive Player of the Year. Cole Evans was named 1st team outfielder. Zerick Warren was selected as a 2nd team catcher, and Jon-Michael Mahon was selected as a 2nd team corner infielder. Brooks Torma and Hunter Evans received Honorable Mention recognition. According to Head Coach John Adair, a lot of the Elks’ success in recent seasons was due to the pitching of senior Brady Johnson. “Brady had an outstanding career for the Elks and will be missed. The good news for Brady is that his baseball days are not over. He will be continuing his baseball career at Paris Junior College.” The scholarship offer came after Johnson attended a showcase camp at Paris. Most recently, EHS’ Bryson Adair had the honor of playing for Sophomore Team Texas in the Sunbelt Classic in Oklahoma City, May 31-June 2. The team is selected from sophomore players throughout Texas that were nominated by their coaches. Forty players were selected then divided into two teams. The tournament was made up of the two Texas teams, four Oklahoma teams, and teams from Nebraska, Arkansas, and Canada. Bryson performed well with a few hits and had a win on the mound. The Sunbelt Classic championship game was between the two Texas teams.
