Incoming Plainfield North HS Freshman Wins 14U MLB Junior Home Run Derby

Incoming Plainfield North High School freshman Logan Huegel has won the 14U MLB Junior Home Run Derby in Los Angeles.

With 14 home runs in the final round - and 29 total - Huegel was named champion on Saturday, July 16, 2022.

"Playing at Dodgers Stadium gave me the point of view of what it is like to be a professional baseball player," Huegel said.

"It was very cool to hit in a stadium that MLB players play at," he said.

Huegel is no stranger to the fierce competition.

At 11-years-old, he signed up for the Derby after seeing a commercia and then qualified and made it to the Finals in Cincinnati, Ohio, he said.

In 2020, the Derby was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

And in 2021, Huegel won third place at the Finals in Atlanta, Georgia.

Huegel has been playing baseball since he was able to walk and hold a ball, he said.

"It was a once in a lifetime experience for me," Huegel said on competing and winning the Derby.

"I will always cherish and remember every second of it," he said.

Huegel plans to play baseball at PNHS.

THIS IS REAL. I REPEAT, THIS IS REAL. The black mirror is real, the black mirror is really powerful, effective and 100% reliable. My name is Walter Brian, I want to thank Dada Magical for giving his black mirror to me. Since he gave me his black mirror, I became rich, successful, protected, informed and powerful. I was browsing through the internet one day when I saw multiple testimonies on how Dada Magical has helped so many people with his black mirror. I thought it was a joke at first but I gave it a try and contacted him. He sold the black mirror to me and told me how to use it and all that I need to do. I followed the instructions just as he told me and to my greatest surprise, it worked just as he told me. The black mirror is still working for me. The mirror also brings good luck, blessings and information. Contact Dada Magical now on his email; [email protected] and he will help you also with the black mirror just the same way he helped me. Thank you Great Dada Magica
