Randy Johnson Cheers Washington-Lee JV Baseball to Victory

Five-time Cy Young Award-winner joined the Generals in the dugout Friday for their win against the Mount Vernon Majors.

Will Burgess pitched five-plus strong innings and scored the go-ahead run on a perfectly executed squeeze bunt by Ben Buckholtz as the Washington-Lee Generals defeated the Mount Vernon Majors 4-2 in a junior varsity baseball clash Friday at Quincy Park.

Burgess recorded eight strikeouts, had two of W-L's six hits and scored two runs. Burgess tired in the sixth inning and the Majors loaded the bases with no outs. Cam Anderson relieved him and retired Mount Vernon thanks in part to a spectacular leaping catch by Buckholtz at first base. Anderson then struck out the side in the final Mount Vernon at bat.

The biggest buzz of the night, however, was caused by former major league and future Hall of Fame pitcher Randy Johnson. The 6-foot-10-inch Johnson spent the game in the Washington-Lee dugout and lingered long after the game for photographs with both teams. Johnson's appearance was at the conclusion of his tour.
