Baseball: Harvard-Westlake is reloading fast with incoming freshman

June 17, 2013 | 10:31 am

Coming off its win in the championship game of the Southern Section Division 1 baseball final, Studio City Harvard-Westlake has some returnees to build around, such as the reigning player of the year in Jack Flaherty.

But the Wolverines are also looking for help from some newcomers, and they're about to get immediate help from highly touted incoming freshman Logan Pollack, a middle infielder-pitcher who will get a chance this summer and fall to show if he can hit varsity pitching.

Five sophomores are moving from the junior varsity team. They'll join such returnees as outfielder Ezra Steinberg, who's moving into the infield, and infielders Brian Ginsberg and Tyler Urbach.

But Pollack could be a key addition if he lives up to early buzz about his talent.
