The Battlin’ Bear Baseball season is underway and varsity is looking forward to a strong year. The boys have multiple goals set for the season, including making a run for the district championship and hoping to advance far in the playoffs. With the amount of effort all of the team members put forth, the season looks hopeful.

“We are looking to make a run at a district championship and a deep run into playoffs,” senior pitcher Slade Green said. “I know we have the ability to do it.”

The team has been working hard since the beginning of the season, in hopes of becoming a better team and beating any competition that stands in the way. The Bridge City Cardinals are one of their biggest competitors in the district. Green believes that the team will be able to defeat the competition throughout the season and give Bear fans exciting games to look forward to.

“We have plenty of experience and eight returning starters,” Green said. “Our fans get to look forward to great games and a team that plays with much enthusiasm.”

While the team has set goals, many individuals have also set personal goals in order to become better players while also helping out the team. For junior and second baseman Ty Shugart, his goal is to simply be the best player he can be in order to benefit the team.

“It’s not an individual sport,” Shugart said. “If you can’t learn how to work as a team, then you will never be able to go as far as you want to. Our team is really good at working together and everyone pulls their own weight. I think we could go really far this year.”

The team recently played in a tournament hosted at home and won all six games played to improve their record to 6-1. Their next home game will be this Thursday, March 1 at 7 p.m. against Legacy Christian.

“We always play our hardest and have fun while we do it,” Shugart said. “Our games are not ones you want to miss.”
