The Creek begins new season with a bang

batball01No layoff rust here for The Creek as they (finally) got to play their first game in a new season with a convincing 18-12 victory over their opponent. Returning for another season after a 2nd place finish, the Creek’s bats were hot right out of the gate nearly batting through the lineup in the 1st inning and never looked back. A few errors in the 5th nearly let the opponent back into the game; however, the hot bats continue to pour on the runs to cruise to an easy victory for the Creek.

New coach and pitcher Will J said afterward that he was nervous about coaching his first game, but that the first inning really settled his nerves. Rookie first-basemen Bo Irvin said that he was glad to get the first game under his belt and looks to get more comfortable for the next game to come.

Game Ball goes to the whole team for working hard over the off-season to stay fresh. While the fielding will need some improvement, the bats are looking good. The top 4 of Dave, Justin, Todd, and Purvis continue to punish the opponents while the middle of the line-up has seen much improvement over last year. Josiah told this reporter, “I have been working in keeping my elbow up. While I didn’t get the hit I wanted, all the shots were good line drives.”

All looks good on the game front this year. Some small improvements on the fielding side, and we could be looking at another possible Championship run!
