High School Baseball Update

Last Saturday, May 25th, the high school baseball team I help coach won it's third straight Regional Championship.

All year long we've had stellar defense, excellent pitching and just enough hitting to get by. The Regional Championship game was no different. Take a look at the video I made to commemorate the moment of the 9th-inning walk-off victory:

On Wednesday, May 29th, we defeated Lincoln by the score of 2-1 to move to the Sectional Championship game.

Yesterday we faced off versus a very talented Galesburg team, who jumped out to an early 1-0 lead.

We managed to tie the game in the middle innings and then with two outs in the bottom of the 7th our catcher hit a walk-off single.  Celebration Time!
 Our catcher was the football team's starting quarterback. He has some elusive moves as you can see from the picture above. 
But, when an entire team is chasing you  . . . well, eventually you're going to be on the bottom of the dog pile!

Below is a video of the last play from a local TV channel.
This is only the fourth time in school history the baseball team has advanced to the Elite Eight.

We play tomorrow for a shot at the Final Four! Wish us luck!


  1. Good luck! Awesome video too.

    I think I've mentioned it before, but really like your squad's uniforms. Give em hell!

  2. Congratulations on the win! Good luck tomorrow!
