The Livingston Lightning unveiled their logo earlier today.

    The Livingston Lightning are the second team to be added to the Washburn Wiffleball League for the 2013 season.  The Lightning were officially approved by the league this afternoon and will be joining the Main St. Division.  The team will be managed by former Dozer Matt Donegan, and have already made some quality acquisitions for this upcoming season. 

Donegan will be playing outfield and has been a respectable hitter for the past two seasons.  Although he had 21 strikeouts last year at the plate, he managed a .564 OBP and belted 5 home runs.  Matt Hayes will be joining the Lightning from the Dozers as well.  As a rookie last season, Hayes
hit .582 with 4 HR and 28 RBI.  The Lightning have also picked up Alex Coleman and Matt Condame.  Despite winning only one game last season with the Suns, Coleman was a productive player.  In 10 games he batted .556 with 15 RBI and also showed some glimpses of hope on the mound.  As for Condame, he will be leaving the Whompers after recording 15 hits in just 5 games last season.  Condame, as well as Coleman, are both options to pitch and certainly make this team a lot better.
    The Lightning are still working toward signing a final player, but so far they have taken steps in the right direction.  The team will have some tough competition in the Main St. Division, playing against both the Bombers and Workhorses.  It will be interesting to find out how well they stack up against some of the best in the league.
