Logan Anderson won't move the decibel meter much with her words, but the sound from her bat does the job just fine.
Forest Lake’s leadoff hitter, and leader in the dugout, helped her team to a 12-4 win Wednesday at Woodbury. Anderson was one of three Rangers with three hits and highlighted the day with a two-run homer to right-center field.
“Logan is probably one of the best players I’ve ever had the opportunity to coach, and I’ve coached a lot of players,” Forest Lake coach Sean Hall said. “The way she knows the game, she’s smart and knows what to do. She can play multiple positions. She’s probably one of the best, if not the best, catchers in the state. She can also go out and play third base."
Hall saved Anderson’s legs by playing her at third base on Wednesday, where she and the Rangers played an error-free game. Anderson also led off the game with a double and came around to score in a two-run first inning. She went 3-for-4 with three RBIs and was a triple away from the cycle.
