BRAD SCHNEIDER was just a sophomore for La Salle High in 2012 when he stepped to the plate, knees knocking in the quarterfinals of the Class AAAA playoffs. Schneider, who missed nearly that entire Catholic League season with an ankle injury, was called upon in the seventh inning in a sacrifice-bunt situation against Central Dauphin. "First at-bat pretty much of that whole year," Schneider said Wednesday as the Explorers (18-5) prepared for today's PIAA championship game.
