Though the Tigers didn’t get off to the start for which they hoped, the experience in going to extra innings with a team of a higher classification will be valuable for them later in the year.

 

“The team overall played good with a few errors that can be fixed. The team fought a close one going into extra innings with a higher classification team,” junior Zuker Campbell said.

 

The Tigers played a very solid game against a solid double a team, but in close games small mistakes and errors make the difference between winning and losing. Unfortunately the Tigers made just too many mistake to win, but have plenty of time to improve upon those mistakes.

 

“Going into our first game, we were all prepared but had a few mental mistakes that cost us a couple of runs. The teams just to let it go and move on to the next one,” Campbell said.

 

For many players, Tuesday was the first look at varsity baseball. Unlike most teams who have only junior and seniors playing, this team has many freshmen contributing which gives the Tigers great potential but also some inexperience to learn from in the early games.

 

“I’m a freshman so the game was exciting for me but also got a lot off of my chest. I was nervous for my first game and on top of that I had to pitch against a kid going to Kent State. It was nerve racking, but a fun game that went down to the wire,” freshman Lawson Brown said.
