Sports: Bosco Baseball Mid-Season Review
by Samuel Rodriguez
Our very own Bosco Baseball team has very high hopes set for the future of their season. Despite the future looking brighter as each player works harder and harder, the Braves had a rough beginning to their 2019 season.
As of right now, the team is 1-5 in Trinity League with a lone, crucial victory over Jserra, The team is 7-11 overall.
“With these past few losses, coach has been pushing us a lot harder. He expects a lot more out of us and I know that we can do so much better than we are playing,” said senior shortstop and captain Derek Delgado.
The team is striving to become more competitive and hope to earn more wins in future games.
Our Bosco Braves are starting over and beginning anew with a step toward the right direction as they put in more work to become a better unit as a whole.
The team’s chemistry as a whole has been an area of concern all season, and something that could be holding the team back.
“I think that the players on the team aren’t the issue, it’s really just the fact that for some reason we can’t seem to function together very well.” stated senior Stephen Chavez.
Though chemistry has been an area of concern thus far, Chavez and others don’t see it as a lasting issue.
“Although our previous games haven’t gone how we expected, I think we’re going to step it up and start winning,” continued Chavez.
The instrumental change occurring within the team is going to be a better work ethic. The future looks to be bright as the Braves are improving their chemistry and playing harder for each other to get wins.
Head Baseball coach Don Barbara has high hopes for the future of his team. He referenced that many important players, such as senior Kyle Moats and junior DJ Uiagalelei, are coming back from injuries and are going to be able to ‘jump start’ the team.
Coach Barbara has also developed new practice routines to help strengthen the teams weaker aspects of the game.
“We are putting more emphasis on our hitting and our hitting approach and things that will help us in games in hopes that in the last 11 games we can pick it up,” stated Barbara.
The Bosco Baseball team, despite their previous record, has high hopes for the road that lies ahead. With the return of vital players and a work ethic specified to strengthen the teams weaknesses, it is still very likely that they will make playoffs and perform better as a unit going forward.
