The Santa Fe South Baseball team is all year around, but this year the fall season went well. They won some and lost some, but they beat one of their biggest rivals for the first time, Union City. Behind OJ’s pitching and their hot bats, they knocked the opponent’s cleats off!
To prepare, they take lots of cuts during practice either on the tee, soft toss, or live toss. They try to tinker their swings and make them as good as they can for the spring. Also, they do a lot of fielding drills and inter-squad scrimmaging with each other. They have different pitchers every day of the week, so that they are able to make adjustments and see a variety of pitches.
Cesar Escobar was asked, “What do you except from this season?” and he responsed, “I expect a lot out of our team. No one really pays attention to us and we have this year to prove ourselves to this school and every other school that our baseball team can compete with the top notch teams of 4a or 5a.” This year the team is mostly built up on seniors, and the teammates on the team want to send the seniors somewhere to see them succeed. Cesar said, “They’re my brothers, and the ones who helped me become the ball player I am today.”
The baseball team began their spring season on February 23rd. You can check out their schedule on the Spring Baseball Schedule 2017. We wish the best of luck to the boys baseball team this season.
