Baseball season starting means that the end of the school year is near, along with nice weather, finals, graduation and finally, summer. But for these nine seniors, it is their last time playing ball together.
“It’s weird to think it is the last season. I grew up playing and it’s hard to believe it’s coming to an end,” said senior Cameron Koeniguer.
Throughout the four years in South baseball, these guys started together on the freshmen team and have been with each other all the way to Varsity.
“We’ve been playing together since we were all on the freshmen team. I’m going to miss the chemistry and energy we have when we’re together,” said senior Malik Stevenson.
With nine seniors leaving, it’s going to leave a big gap in the lineup.
“The team will definitely miss the leadership, talent and skills those players bring to the team. We’re going to need a lot of people to step up for the 2019 season,” said junior Jackson Dixon.
Despite the loss for next season, the guys are looking forwards to their final season together.
“I’m most excited about hanging out with the guys and it being our last baseball season together,” said senior Billy Eggers.
The rest of the team is also excited to be with the seniors one last year.
“They’re a lot of fun, they have good leadership, humor, and they’re fun to play with. They’re going to be missed as players and as a team,” said Dixon.
The baseball team plans to go out big with winning conference and districts, according to Stevenson.
Come out and support the boys of spring this season. They have 14 home games, including two this weekend on April 7.
