With spring sports right around the corner, sports like baseball are starting to get underway.

Last year our Eagles varsity baseball team finished with a 19-18 record and their season ended in the district tournament in a 3-2 loss against the Francis Howell Vikings.

There are lots of new updates to what is to happen this upcoming season. Coach Wheeler has moved up to be a varsity assistant coach this year along with Coach Ladage, who was the freshman head coach last year who has moved up to coach the JV team. To fill the void at head coach on the freshman level, coach Brian Kingery from Frontier Middle School has taken the position.

Things are beginning to get very exciting and theories are starting to be made about incoming freshmen and what this team’s going to look like. There are a lot of great new personalities for these freshmen as well as loads of talent among one another. Coach Ladage said that there are about 90 kids coming out for tryouts this year and these tryouts are going to be competitive to say the least. 

The tryouts started on Feb. 26 after school. The tryouts will conclude on Feb. 29 and practices will start shortly after.

There are a lot of hard decisions to make when it comes to this year’s freshman team, which according to Coach Kingery is a good problem to have. If the problem this year is that there are hard decisions on which players to give a spot to, then this year’s team of freshmen baseball players will be relatively good.

The Eagles have a lot of incoming talent and have the potential to go far this year if the right decisions on who to take are the right ones. It all depends on who wants it more and who’s willing to work that hard to get there.
