Friday marked 23 years since one of the most impressive offensive outbursts in Wisconsin sports history. On May 22, 1997, Luxemburg-Casco’s baseball team defeated Sevastopol 37-0 at Church Field in Institute, and the underlying stats are as impressive as the scoreline. L-C belted 11 home runs, a WIAA record. Sevastopol was in the middle of a three-games-in-two-days stretch and did have a regular from the rotation available. Several Pioneer pitchers were brought in as relief. Most had never taken the mound in a game before.
