“We looked good today,” is how Seeger head coach Chris Cooksey started his post-game comments. “We cut down on our errors [they had none] and our batting was really good.”
The Falcons committed several errors and pressure by the Patriots contributed to some of them.
“My style is to take an extra base when I can,” said Cooksey about the aggressive play by his team. “We had chances to do it today and it worked.”
He said his team was not a finished product, but that the chemistry is starting to develop. He is trying to make his team as versatile as possible, saying, “I want to make every player a utility player. I want all nine to be able to play any position.”
For Mike Davis, the North Vermillion head coach, it was a night of frustration as he was not at all happy with the play of his team.
“We had what, three hits, and all those dropped balls? You know me,” he said. “This isn’t what I expect from my team.”
To make his point and try for some improvement, Davis had his team go right back out on the field after the game.
“This just isn’t acceptable so we’re going to practice right now and fix some things,” said Davis right before he walked to the plate with bat in hand.
He proceeded to hit fungoes and had his fielders make catches then throws to the various bases as he worked on what had given his team problems during the game.
