With senior leadership and experience coming back to MHS baseball, the spring is going to be fierce.
“I expect us to have a successful season, work hard and play well,” coach Roger Wood said.
Doug Jones, athletic director, agreed.
“The key this year is going to be hitting the ball,” Jones said. He also said that he is very optimistic with the first game of the season coming up on March 21 against rival Ava.
“The Ava game is going to be a tough rivalry this year,” Jones said.
Unfortunately only 13 players are on the roster this season. With such small numbers, each player is going to have to commit, work hard in practice and come to play ball.
“We only want the players on our team that want to be there and come to play,” senior Curtis Carnal said.
“Some play ball; some don’t,” Wood added.
